Security Exercise in Whiting Indiana

Andrie participated in a security exercise at the BP Whiting terminal, in Whiting, Indiana on September 13, 2006.  The exercise involved BP, Andrie, U.S. Coast Guard, FBI, and local law enforcement agencies.  The security exercise involved a hostage situation with eco-terrorists taking over the BP Marine dock.  The Andrie tug, Rebecca Lynn was used as a staging area for the FBI negotiating team.  The FBI SWAT team and U.S. Coast Guard also used the Rebecca Lynn tug as a staging area to conduct surveillance hostage rescue operations. The Andrie tug’s crew assisted federal agencies while on board the vessel.  The 4-hour drill was a success, as the participants gained a better understanding of each others operations and importance of proper communications.
