The equipment available in the stockpile can be used for oil spill response from the shoreline as well as in rivers. It is also used for training courses and exercises that are organized at regular intervals all year round.

FOST also has a dispersant stockpile, based in Clairoix (Oise), comprising 228 IBCs of FINASOL OSR52. Its location close to Paris CDG airport means that it can be quickly dispatched in the event of a spill.
