Fines for oil dumping offenses in the US could soon be spent by the US Coast Guard on the development and expansion of facilities for proper and 'legal' dumping. The suggestion was made by ship operators at a Coast Guard hearing and ?brainstorming session? called by Commander Michael Roldan, reports said. The ship operators present, some of whom have paid fines for illegal oil dumping, said they would gladly offload their oily water and waste while alongside but complained of protracted waits, bureaucracy and high fees that together inhibited MARPOL compliance.

Captain Rob Lorigan, the vice-president of operations compliance at OSG said that too many shore-side reception facilities took days to test waste before agreeing to accept it.

Lorigan told that some terminals would allow offloading of waste at some piers but not at others.

According to him, ?after conducting cargo operations at one pier, it"s often difficult to move to another pier just to offload oily water.? And some terminals don"t want vessels coming alongside just to offload waste.

Commander Roldan apparently welcomed the comments and said that parties needed to "work together to make this programme effective and workable.?
