Fluids Management and Spills

Newfield has controls and programs in place to prevent operational spills. We design our facilities and operate our sites with appropriate containment systems for all operational fluids. In the event of a spill, our employees and contractors are trained to initiate emergency response procedures, mobilize appropriate equipment and adhere to regulatory reporting requirements. Necessary resources are prepared to promptly respond to the incident, remediate the area and return the site to its original condition.

Spills are tracked internally and reported if they meet minimum state and/or federal reporting thresholds. Our Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plans and other contingency procedures identify preventative measures to reduce spill risk, and an internal audit protocol for our facilities ensures effective training and inspection for the SPCC program.
