Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Greenland Oil Spill Response (GOSR)

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

Oil Spill Response Limited is pleased to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Greenland Oil Spill Response (GOSR), Greenland’s nationally owned oil spill emergency response company to deliver enhanced services to mutual clients in Greenland.

The scope of the MoU between OSRL and GOSR is to see both parties working together to establish a framework for a co-operative and seamless two-way flow of oil spill preparedness and response resources which will be achieved through joint use of respective capabilities to expand and optimise services to clients operating in Greenland.

“GOSR is a newly founded oil spill emergency response company and the first of its kind in Greenland. With increasing environmental awareness from both the authorities and the industry, it has become extremely important for us to constantly develop our services and to learn from much more experienced oil spill emergency response organisations such as OSRL. It will be an equally beneficial relationship which will also benefit our mutual clients as well the oil spill response capability in Greenland in general.” says Lonnie B. Wilms, Managing Director of GOSR.

Robert Limb, CEO of OSRL, says, “We look forward to enhance our oil spill preparedness and response capabilities with GOSR, and explore the best ways we can optimise coordination to deliver the most efficient and effective response in Greenland. The oil spill response industry is evolving, and there is a need to explore how tier 1, 2, and 3 organisations can best work together in different environments and scenarios. This MoU will contribute to our experience in developing a framework for greater industry cooperation.”
