This paper describes the TRANSPETRO Emergency Response System, developed by PETROBRAS / TRANSPETRO, which is applicable to oils terminals, mostly located in sea or river harbor areas, and a large oil pipeline mesh that spans the Brazilian territory. The engine of the system consists of a distributed workflow management software, called InfoPAE. The software runs locally at each major installation, all connected to a central site. The deployment of the TRANSPETRO Emergency Response System is part of a larger effort to achieve a standard of excellence in the response to emergency situations at each operational unity, including full compliance with environmental regulations set by the federal government.
