January 5, 2022

Happy 50th Anniversary!

2022 is a major milestone year for WCSS, and we simply could not provide the support that we do for industry without your involvement.  The commitment put forward by our member companies, regulatory bodies and exceptional contractors truly demonstrates the positive impact of a cooperative approach:

These cornerstones of ensuring oil spill preparedness embody 50 years of results-based collaboration. Though our boundaries have shifted, our focus has not. We want to thank you for your continued support, and look forward to the next 50 years working together!
