An oil spill prevention system makes the difference

More than 600 million barrels of oil are shipped every year into California, creating a major challenge for state officials who protect the waterways.

So, how does the State Lands Commission – the agency that oversees more than 40 marine terminals – monitor all of those oil shipments? Well, M Corp and the Commission developed an oil spill prevention system for marine terminals and offshore platforms.

It’s been a huge success. Less than four barrels of oil have been leaked annually into the state’s waterways during the past several years, according to the State Lands Commission.

In fact, you would have much better odds at winning the California Lottery – match all five numbers plus the Mega number – than finding a barrel of oil leaked into state waters.

Certainly, oil shipment companies are doing a better job ensuring against oil spills, but the M Corp-partnered system that tracks spills also plays a major role in keeping our beaches and ocean oil-free.
