Established stockpile bases for oil-spill response equipment at
key locations in Japan.
had established six bases in Japan and five bases overseas* by the end
of June 1996, to stockpile oil-spill response equipment and lend it to
those in need upon request in the event of a major oil spill. PAJ also
built up a branch of Hokkaido stockpile base in Wakkanai in July 2010
with the start of supplying oil in the Sakhalin-2 project. The review has led us to reorganize 7 domestic bases into 6 and concentrate large oil spill recovery equipment in Sodegaura and Kitakyushu in 2020 as indicated in the map.
