CTEP Typhoon Evacuation Plan

1.0

Plan Overview
How To Use This Plan
All duty and field personnel should be familiar with this typhoon plan. This plan is a
Chevron Thailand Exploration and Production (CTEP) specific contingency plan that is
aligned and supplements the CTEP Emergency Response Plan (ERP).
Section 1 provides the scope of the plan along with the principles and criteria to be used
during the evacuation and remobilization phases. Section 1 also includes a summary of the
key roles and responsibilities of the response organizations and definitions of typhoon-related
terms used in the plan. Users should have a good understanding of these.
Section 2 provides detailed actions and procedures required to manage evacuations effectively
and efficiently. This is the main section and must be used for guidance during the actual
typhoon evacuation and remobilization phases.
Section 5 (Appendices) provides Checklists and relevant Forms for all AEMT / IEMT / ORT
members to use for managing a typhoon evacuation and remobilization. It is recommended
that all duty persons print out the specific checklists related to their roles and keep in their
personal emergency information pack / battle book ready for use.
General Information About Typhoon
For the Gulf of Thailand (GOT), the Typhoon Season normally occurs during the OctoberDecember timeframe. Typhoons are unpredictable but, in general, typhoons originate and
move into the GOT from the east (Pacific Ocean and South China Sea) then move in a
westerly direction across the gulf. However, there is always the threat of storms
developing or re-developing locally within the GOT. Historical data (Typhoon Gay, 1989
& Angela, 1992) indicates that these locally developed storms expand explosively within 12
to 16 hours. When this is the situation or predicted, an immediate decision must be made to
evacuate required field personnel, offshore mobile units and marine vessels to a safe haven
before the sea or wind conditions make it unsafe to do so.
Because of the weather-sensitive nature of the Chevron GOT operations, especially the risk of
typhoons, Chevron Thailand utilizes a professional contract Weather Services to provide
integrated meteorological support. This support includes daily site-specific forecasts from the
MET Contractors Forecast Center during the typhoon season which are valid for 72-hours
and are issued twice daily at approximately. 0600 and 1800 hours Thailand time. The
frequency of forecasts are increased depending on the weather concern and evacuation plan
status. The forecasts will include a summary of the meteorological situation, including details
of expected wind and wave conditions and warnings (squall, gale, high swell, etc.) for the
duration of the forecast.
Forecasts will also include a "Tropical Advisory" section, with details of any Tropical
Disturbance or Tropical Cyclone Concern in the central or southern South China Sea region.
More specific details and recommendations will be included if the weather system has the
potential to trigger a Chevron Thailand Typhoon Alert Phase.

CTEP Typhoon Evacuation Plan

In general, the Chevron Thailand Four (4) Phase System is shown on the Typhoon Tracking
Map. The phase progression assumes that the weather systems will move through each trigger
point for each phase thus allowing action to be taken in a progressive manner. However, since
no two storms are ever identical, this scenario does not always occur. Therefore, if a local
weather condition develops quickly within the GOT, the AEMT Incident Commander, with
consultation from AEMT staff and facility managers, may declare a Phase 4 Alert
immediately
Early awareness and diligent monitoring of weather developments and communications are
fundamental to the effectiveness of the plan; this includes the proactive communications from
the MET Contractors Forecast Center, and diligent monitoring of local weather conditions by
the on-site meteorologist at Satun LQ during typhoon season and timely implementation of
the actions for the each phase.
1.1

Purpose and Objectives


The purpose of the Typhoon Evacuation Plan is to ensure the safety of all Employee and
Contractor Personnel during abnormal weather situations requiring the evacuation of
personnel.
The objectives of this plan are to ensure that proper consideration is given to all abnormal
weather situations and to provide guidance for the planning and orderly evacuation and
remobilization of offshore personnel when considered necessary.
The overall goal is to establish common procedures and understanding for good
communications between Offshore Facility Managers, the Incident Command Center,
Shorebase Facilities, Air Centers, other Administration Support personnel who will be
coordinating and assisting with the evacuation and remobilization of offshore personnel.
Execution of this plan must be consistent with the Chevron Way and the Over-Response
philosophy which is fundamental to effective emergency management.

1.2

Scope
This typhoon evacuation plan provides roles and responsibilities, procedural guides,
checklists, along with reference information related to the weather watch and response actions
required for abnormal weather situations. Although the plan is primarily applicable to
typhoon evacuation and remobilization, it can also be utilized as guidance for any situations
requiring evacuation and remobilization of a large number of personnel from Chevrons Gulf
of Thailand Operations.
The plan and procedures are built around the following principles and criteria:
1.

Priority must be for the early return of personnel from remote well platforms, or if
appropriate canceling planned work on remote well platforms.

Asia South SBU


CTEP Typhoon Evacuation Plan

2.

Experience has shown that the floating mobile offshore units (tender rigs,
accommodation barges) are at the greatest risk during storm / typhoon conditions;
both for their personnel and the potential to cause collision damage to fixed facilities.
Thus, if the situation dictates, these mobile units must be towed or moved out of the
field(s) by anchor handling vessels to safe areas. The plan is based on towing tenders
and accommodation barges with personnel remaining on board. This is considered
the safest response since the mobile offshore units are seagoing vessels inspected and
classified by Marine Classification Societies and have a qualified Marine Master
(Captain) /OIM always on board to ensure marine safety while towing.

3.

Jack-up drilling units are considered as fixed offshore facilities and priority must be
given to their E-compliment personnel to be evacuated to safety onshore.

4.

In all cases, the masters (captains) of marine vessels are the final authorities for the
safety of their vessels and personnel on board.

5.

Any evacuation to shore must be based on decisions by the Bangkok Incident


Commander (in consultation with the AEMT staff, evacuation coordinators at the
Shorebases along with the offshore facility managers). This will be a case-by-case
decision based on the perceived threat at the time. There is no absolute requirement
when to begin evacuation activities or recommended actions stipulated; however,
required actions can be accelerated but never delayed for each phase. The Bangkok
Incident Commander may change aspects of the procedure to ensure a more
conservative and safer response. No formal MOC Procedure is required for this caseby-case change, however, prudent risk management principles shall be used.

6.

Based on logistical constraints, evacuation and remobilization of offshore first toleave personnel (E-Compliment) to / from shore is planned via marine vessels, except
for the personnel designated to remain on board (R-Compliment) until a final stage
when full evacuation is declared. R- Compliment personnel will be evacuated by
helicopters. Helicopters will be utilized to remobilize critical personnel required for
each facility. The remobilization priority of personnel and transport methods must be
based on the priority needs established by the Superintendents in conjunction with the
OIM's/DSM's/CAR's, to resume critical operations and services.
Concurrently, and subsequently, crew boats will be utilized to remobilize remaining
evacuated personnel to each facility to support the return of operations and services to
normal. Exceptions to this guide can be made subject to proper justification and
approval by the Superintendent or the Incident Commander.

7.

Chevron Offshore Installation Managers (OIM), Drill Site Managers (DSM) and
Company Authorized Representatives (CAR) on contracted offshore installations are
responsible for developing and implementing the evacuation plan and procedures in
coordination with the Bangkok Incident Command and staff as well as personnel at
Shorebases and air centers consistent with the weather conditions and activities at the
time.

1.3

The procedures during the four defined phases (Phase 1, 2, 3 and 4) of this plan are
meant to be the minimum actions. Additional facility-specific actions may be required
depending on the type of offshore facility and nature of the work activities. Each
offshore facility must establish and/or update its facility-specific Typhoon
Evacuation Plan annually prior to October consistent with their planned
activities during each typhoon season. Facility-specific plans shall be attached as
Appendix 4 to this common plan. Facility-specific plans should not duplicate
activities or procedures common to all facilities in this plan.

Affects
This evacuation plan establishes a common weather contingency plan which is applicable to
all Chevron Thailands operated offshore facilities and operations, all offshore employees and
contractors along with Shorebases facilities and personnel under the management or control
of Chevron Thailand.
For Chevron Thailands non-operated facilities and operations, the responsible departments
must require their contractors to provide a typhoon evacuation plan which is self-supporting
for its facility e.g. jack-up rig, tender rigs, accommodation barges, floaters, derrick/lay barges,
marine spreads, etc. which should align with the Chevron Thailand Typhoon Evacuation Plan.
Communication between the Contractors PIC and the Chevron CAR is always essential to
ensure that there is a clear understanding regarding response actions during emergencies and
abnormal weather conditions.

CTEP Typhoon Evacuation Plan

Trigger Point
A term used to designate when a specific action is to begin. The center position of a Tropical
Cyclone (TC) will be the TC position reference. The primary trigger point to begin evacuation
actions is at Phase 2 when the storm center is at the Typhoon Tracking Maps 550 nm ring or
when the typhoon track assessment calculation requires a time-based trigger point sooner.
(Required action at trigger points can be accelerated but never delayed.)
Tropical Storm Terms
A tropical cyclone is a low-pressure weather system in which the central core is warmer than
the surrounding atmosphere. Tropical Cyclone is a generic term for low-pressure systems
with a defined wind circulation, born over tropical, or sometimes subtropical, waters.
Tropical depressions, tropical storms, hurricane, and typhoons are all tropical cyclones.
A typhoons life cycle passes through four distinct stages, tropical disturbance, tropical
depression, tropical storm and finally a typhoon. All are classified as tropical cyclones.
Tropical Disturbance (1st Stage)
Often is the earliest stage of a tropical cyclone. Normally it is an organized area of
thunderstorms that forms in the tropics and persists for more than 24 hours. Low pressure
might form at the surface, but winds remain below 30 mph.
Tropical Depression (2nd Stage)
When a tropical disturbance develops circulation (rotation around a center of low pressure), it
is designated a tropical depression. Tropical depressions contain maximum sustained 1minute winds near the surface of 33 knots or less.
Tropical Storm (3rd Stage)
A tropical cyclone is given a name once it reaches tropical storm status. Tropical storms
contain maximum sustained 1-minute winds at 34 to 63 knots.
Typhoon (4th Stage)
A Typhoon designation is used when a circulating storm has sustained 1-minute winds at the
10-meter elevation of equal to or greater than 64 knots. However, winds in most typhoons
can become much stronger.
Typhoons are categorized on a scale of 1 to 5 based on their wind speed, barometric pressure,
and resultant destructive potential.
Typhoons, or their equivalents, occur in other parts of the world. In the North Atlantic Ocean,
The Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean Sea, they are known as hurricanes.

Weather Watch Procedures


Satun Marine Control (SMC) is charged with the Day to Day Weather Monitoring and
gathering weather information along with advising all facilities and Duty Persons when a
weather situation is developing. In the case of a potential typhoon situation the Duty AEMT
Incident Commander shall be the primary initial onshore contact to be notified.
As specified below, Satun Marine Control (SMC) and the Contract Weather Service will
announce a Tropical Disturbance Watch as a preliminary notification to make key personnel
aware that there is a weather situation that may have the potential to escalate.
1.

A tropical disturbance watch will be announced by the Weather Services forecaster,


by contacting the Satun Marine Controller directly by telephone when a tropical
disturbance (with closed surface circulation) has the potential to develop into a
tropical depression, tropical storm or typhoon, within the red boundary area of the
Chevron Typhoon Tracking Map.
If in the opinion of the SMC there is reason for concern he may also announce the
tropical disturbance watch without notification from the Weather Services, although
he should confer with the Duty Meteorologists.

2.

The SMC will notify all Chevron OIMs / DSMs / CARs in addition to the Bangkok
Incident Commander that a tropical disturbance watch has been announced. All
notifications shall be done verbally to ensure they are received with a follow-up by
fax / e-mail

3.

The Bangkok Incident Commander will notify AEMT Duty Persons to establish a
Storm Committee and alert appropriate Duty Roster Persons that a tropical
disturbance watch has been announced. Storm Committee Members in turn shall
notify the key personnel in their respective departments as necessary.

4.

As appropriate, the Bangkok Incident Commander will convene a meeting of the


Storm Committee to discuss the severity of the weather, the speed and direction of the
storms path and the proximity to Chevrons Operations. This Committee will
discuss the situation, review emergency procedures and plan what future action
should be taken and establish a meeting and time line planning schedule.
Additionally, this Committee shall maintain close contact with their respective field
representatives throughout the Tropical Disturbance Watch and further phases.

5.

Based on the advice of the Marine Controller, the Contract weather services
personnel, the Offshore Installation Managers and the Drill Site Managers and in
conjunction with the responsible Managers, the Bangkok Incident Commander
will, if required, announce what phase of the Typhoon Evacuation Plan should
be implemented.

6.

If and when the tropical disturbance has dissipated as established by the Weather
Service, the Marine Controller will notify the Bangkok Incident Commander and all
stations that the threat is over and will confirm the stand down by fax / e-mail

Typhoon Evacuation Phase Plan


Minimum Actions
The decision by the Bangkok Incident Commander to move into any phase of the typhoon
evacuation procedures shall be based on the advice of the contracted weather forecasters, the
Marine Controller, the OIMs/ DSMs / CARs and Storm Committee.
This decision shall be based upon:

Local offshore weather and sea conditions that could prevent personnel boarding
crew boats or tow bridal hook-ups.
The severity of the storm, the speed of the storm center, the direction and path of the
storm and the distance from the nearest Chevron operation.
The activities that are in progress at the time and the estimated time to secure the
facility or rig for evacuation.
The resources available for evacuation boats and helicopters.
The resources available to carry out the evacuation.

As a safeguard the stated actions for each phase must be implemented as a minimum.
The red dashed border of the Chevron Typhoon Tracking Map is the Tropical Disturbance
Watch Area for rig operations, in general no action is recommended until the storm center
enters the green dashed border area. Nothing is certain, but weather systems from the north
above 12o N will most likely dissipate because of the land mass.
Phase Summary
>650 nm Watch Area (Gray)
Weather situation identified, Operations remain Normal, Marine Control and Duty Asset /
Drilling / FE OPs Chief monitor weather situation closely and keep in regular contact with
all managers and facilities. Storm Tracking and weather updates distributed on increased
frequency consistent with the storms threat.

Communication
1.

Bangkok Incident Command Room: The function of the Bangkok Incident


Command Room is to support the field in anyway possible so that the field can
handle the emergency at hand and, if the need arises, the Bangkok AEMT shall
coordinate events that require the sharing of equipment such as marine vessels and
helicopters. All decisions throughout any emergency will be made in close
consultation with field personnel, the Offshore Installation Managers, Drill Site
Managers, Chevron Construction Representatives and the Marine Controller and will
be based on their general recommendations.

2.

Route of Communications: All communications (messages, faxes and E-mails) to


Bangkok should be sent to the Bangkok Incident Commander and copied to others.
The Bangkok Incident Commander will ensure that the correct personnel receive
copies.

3.

Family information Center: The Family Information Center will be set up during an
emergency to answer inquiries from families and employees. This center will monitor
personnel numbers and movement. All POB lists and personnel movements
(helicopter and boat manifests) should contain both the name and employee
number and employer of each evacuee and be sent to the Bangkok Incident
Commander with a copy to The Family Information Coordinator, the Marine
Controller at Satun LQ and the Shorebase Evacuation Coordinators.

4.

E-Mail: E-mail will be available in the Bangkok Incident Command Center (E-mail
post box BKK Incident Commander) and the Bangkok Family Information Center
(E-mail post box BKK FIC Coordinator)
A list of all Emergency Position E-Mail addresses is posted on the CTEP EM Web
Site.
Note:

All E-mail should be sent requesting a read receipt. If not received an


alternative method should be used to send the information. All E-mail should
be sent to the Bangkok Incident Commander and copied to others.

5.

Loss of Communication with Field: In the event that communications are


completely lost with the Bangkok Incident Command Center the overall coordination
of this plan will be taken over by the Offshore Installation Manager at Satun for the
South and Benchamas for the North. Further, in the unlikely event that
communication with any facility is completely lost, then the facility manager will
assume the coordination of the evacuation with vessels allocated during Phase 1.

6.

Keeping People Informed: To avoid misunderstandings or miscommunications and


to reduce anxiety, the Bangkok Incident Commander shall ensure all relevant
Chevron personnel are kept informed by means of Information Releases on a regular
basis. The decision as who receives the information depends on the nature of the
information being conveyed and is at the discretion of the Bangkok Incident
Commander. There are a number of groups in the Global Address List under GRP

The recommendation is that these releases be made as quickly as possible after a


major change or at least every four hours. If available these releases should be
checked by the PGPA Group in Bangkok, but should not be delayed because of this.
It is important that these updates are also sent to PGPA and the Family Information
Coordinator as well as other relevant parties.
If E-mail is unavailable because the rig is disconnected or under tow, then the
Drilling Operations Chief should keep the crews informed by any means possible
such as Marisat, radio, message relays via near by facilities.
Weather updates should be communicated to all OIMs / DSMs / CARs as
frequently as possible and when ever a major change occurs but at least every four
hours even if there are no changes. The OIM / D&C / FE OPs Chief are included as
part of the Global Address List under GRP BKK IC.
7.

Stopping Direct Communication from Outside to the Field. To avoid telephone


service being tied up and preventing emergency communication, the following
procedure will be adopted when deemed necessary by the Bangkok Incident
Commander. This procedure will still allow employees offshore to communicate
with family members.

The Bangkok Incident Commander will instruct the Communications


personnel and switch board operators to direct all incoming calls from family
members and friends trying to contact employees to the Family Information
Center (FIC). The FIC will take the relevant information and then inform the
caller that the information will be passed on to the employee (offshore
worker) through the facility radio operator. The worker can then contact their
family member by phone through the radio room.

Employees / Workers on duty offshore are permitted to initiate contact with


their family members. (If this ties up too many lines it may be necessary for
the OIM or Supervisors to establish a priority list.)

Only the following facility personnel (with the specific verbal approval of the
OIM) are permitted to make or receive communications regarding the
evacuation operations:
Radio Operators
Production Superintendent / Supervisor
Maintenance Superintendent / Supervisor
HES Specialist

All phone calls will be logged by the radio operator and may be recorded.

Please note that in accordance with company policy, only those specifically
authorized to do so are permitted to communicate with government agencies,
the media, or any other outside agency, or entity.

Communication Paths
The following diagram indicates the permissible communication paths to ensure coordinated
evacuation and remobilization operations. The primary paths indicate who communicates to
who. The secondary paths allow communications as indicated when appropriate and
necessary with the responsibility to inform anyone affected or with a need to know of the
discussion.
