Emergency drills

All pipeline operators are required to carry out an emergency drill at least once a year. These drills must be organised in a manner that ensures that all involved personnel and companies are able to participate in a drill in the course of the year.

At the beginning of each year, operators are required to submit details to the FPI regarding the location, date and scenario of their drill. In its assessment of the notified scenarios, the FPI examines the following aspects:

  • Does the scenario correspond to an occurrence that could potentially arise?
  • Which organisational units are to be tested?
  • Is the drill an internal exercise or are local emergency services to be included?

As a rule, the FPI attends every third drill.

Each accompanied drill is concluded with a detailed report.
