Security Response Drill

At Kulevi Oil Terminal, security awareness is a top priority and Security Response drills are being conducted on a quarterly basis for security staff. These drills help personnel to develop essential competencies, and new techniques and methods that are essential in addressing potential security issues.


Recently, security response drill was conducted at Kulevi Oil Terminal as per ISPS (International Ship & Port facility Security code) standard requirements. The main topics discussed and practiced during the drill included:

  • Correct response to those trespassing on terminal territory
  • Control the entrance of suspicious vehicles on terminal property


The drill began with a presentation of the Security ISPS regulations and security procedures that are followed at Kulevi Oil Terminal. Also during the drill, participants were familiarized with the European Union handbook on International Port Security and the issues related to it. These were followed by practical work on various security breach scenarios, divided by modules.


The security drill checklist includes:


a) Communication channels

b) Escape routes

c) Meeting places

d) Emergency lighting and signage

This drill is necessary to ensure that proper response measures and necessary actions are always taken in the case of a security threat at the terminal.
