Our Members

The Marine Spill Response Corporation is a not-for-profit, U.S. Coast Guard-classified Oil Spill Removal Organization (OSRO).

MSRC was formed in conjunction with the Marine Preservation Association (MPA) in 1990 to offer oil spill response services and mitigate damage to the environment. With over 20 years of experience, MSRC offers a full range of oil spill response capabilities intended to help meet the planning criteria of the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA 90).

Our primary Operational Area includes all Captain of the Port (COTP) zones on the U.S. East, West, and Gulf Coasts, including the U.S. Caribbean and the Hawaiian Islands (a total of 28 COTP zones). In addition, we are capable of providing spill response services in other areas which are not within MSRC’s primary Operational Area.


“The Global Response Network provides MSRC with an opportunity to share best practices and learn from the experiences of others in the oil spill response community.

It is important that we ensure our organisation and responders stay abreast of the lessons being learned and the technologies and techniques being applied to ensure we can respond in the most effective manner when we are asked to do so.” 

Carmine Dulisse, GRN Executive Committee 
President & Chief Executive, MSRC
