(2) A vessel is about to depart the SPM because of storm conditions; or
(3) The SPM is not scheduled for use in an oil transfer operation within the next 7 days.
(b) The requirement in paragraph (a) of this section is waived if port officials can demonstrate to the Sector Commander, or MSU Commander, with COTP and OCMI authority that a satisfactory alternative means of safely securing all cargo transfer hoses can be implemented in the event of severe weather conditions.
