The Bahamas Government has created the National Oil Spill Contingency Advisory Committee, a small action team, to work with the Response Manager to mount appropriate responses to oil spill incidents, which falls under the purview of the Ministry of Transport and Local Government.

The committee is chaired by Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Transport and Local Government, Antoinette Thompson, and includes stakeholders from both the public and private sectors. The Committee has already met several times and key members have conducted site visits to the Equinor, South Riding Point Oil storage facility in Grand Bahama.
