Comment by Nov. 15: Andeavor Anacortes Refinery Oil Spill Response Plan

Comments on the proposed update to the oil spill contingency response plan for the Anacortes Oil Refinery  -  used to be called Tesoro, before it became Andeavor - are due to the state Department of Ecology at 5 p.m. November 15, 2018. The update is triggered by the name change of the operator of the refinery. 

Comment submission form.

Washington Administrative Code (WAC) 173-182 and 173-186 require oil handling facilities, pipelines, vessels, and railroads to have a state-approved oil spill contingency plan that ensures their ability to respond to major oil spills. 

The following plan is now available for public review: Andeavor Anacortes Refinery Oil Spill Response Plan

This plan review is required due to a name change for the operator of the refinery. The plan is currently operating under Tesoro and will operate under Andeavor upon approval of the plan.
