Oil terminals, refineries and pipelines appear to be ideal targets for terrorists, with guaranteed media attention and high resonance. In the sensitive markets another aspect that has made refineries more vulnerable is their potential target value for terrorism- for-profit, rather than terrorism- for- political ends, as the majority of the world would like to believe. DocomUSA is prepared to meet these threats on Land and Sea with the most comprehensive refinery security system ever conceived. Proprietary and Confidential 1
Proprietary and Confidential 2 The oil and gas industry is a major component of the national critical infrastructure and as such represents an attractive target for terrorists. Globally terrorists have attacked every segment of the oil and gas fuel cycle, ranging from attacks on exploration and development sites, to maritime shipment, land-based distribution via pipelines, to retail and distribution networks, such as filling stations. In addition to international terrorism, two major oil producing countries have also indicated a resort to the use of force in connection with the oil and gas industry:

Maritime Security Liaison Officers (MSLO) Docom USA Security specialist personnel can also be utilised on a more permanent basis, either on a tanker vessel, or shore based installations and will implement the best practice and business continuity with up to date changes in security policies, Local intelligence, planning, procedures, threat assessments and lock down procedures.
Proprietary and Confidential 9 Specialist Maritime Security Consultants: Our consultants can be deployed to initiate and implement emergency planning and crisis management surveys and manual written assessments for DocomUSA owned or contract vessels, or oil & gas installations. A minimum qualification of a Masters degree in risk and crisis management and emergency planning is required of all personnel. Port Freight & Equipment Tracking: Asset Surveillance Protection: Freight and transportation leaving a port or secure distribution compound can be targeted by criminal gangs intent on hijacking and theft from the vehicle. Quite often the gangs have received inside information from within the distribution warehouse about the vehicles valued freight, planned stops, routes and final destination. Effective measures can be utilized by placing hidden trackers within the shipment, specialist surveillance teams can also be deployed to follow and report any planned or attempted attacks to a dedicated control center and the police.
Proprietary and Confidential 10 Investigation & Infiltration Teams: It could be discovered that shipments of refined products have been reported as missing and it is suspected that employees are involved in theft from within the company. Theft can occur from within organizations; bonded warehouses or other cargo storage facilities within the port, these factors can have a big impact on production and profit. Individuals who is specialize in investigation and infiltration techniques can be deployed on the pretext of becoming a regular employee, and then placed within the problematic work area. Over time the undercover investigator can reveal the identity of the perpetrators and how and where the theft is taking place. Evidence in the form of covert photographic imagery can be produced to company officials to be processed at their discretion.Alternatively management may prefer to investigate the theft in a more overt capacity, utilizing an experienced investigation team.
Proprietary and Confidential 11 Maritime Penetration Testing: It is a good idea to test our own security for vulnerability and possible areas of bad security practice from our own employees using outside sources. This could be a vessel which is docked in a port, bonded (high value freight) warehouses, port security guard teams etc.; Experienced and specialist operators will test their security, this could be by means of simply gaining entry into a building or vessel or sending a package with a fake bomb inside, and many more. If the specialist operator has successfully succeeded with their mission, they will then write a full vulnerability assessment report so that the client can assess their most vulnerable areas for the future.
Proprietary and Confidential 12 Port CCTV Installation: A full risk assessment of the port and any buildings within shall be given, suggesting where best to place CCTV cameras. Covert cameras can also be installed to detect theft of freight or equipment occurring by criminals gaining access into the port or by its own employees.
Proprietary and Confidential 13 Port Security Survey (PSS) A detailed Port security survey is conducted either before the new key security personnel are implemented or if other security personnel are already in place. The security survey outlines any changes in; current policy, local threat analysis, vulnerabilities and a recommended security action plan and control measures to be implemented.
Proprietary and Confidential 14 Ship Security Survey (SSS) A detailed independent ship security survey will be conducted on a regular basis to outline the vulnerabilities and recommend security control measures, our action plan lists key priorities to be implemented. Ship Security Design Plan Common ship design has revealed many critical physical and technical security vulnerabilities and features. An increase in piracy attacks against commercial and private shipping in some cases has shown that the structural design of the ship has allowed the attackers a more successful rate in hijacking and theft. A more secure design on a new build will provide vital resilience in structure and decrease the possibility of successful attacks in the future. Our team is playing a vital role by providing security advice in the early stages of architectural planning as in the case of both the DocomUSA Solar Hybrid Oil Tanker and DocomUSAHarth Superfast Tanker designs.
