Oil Spill Response Ltd (OSRL) has announced the signing of a new “Strategic Cooperation Agreement” with Genesis Oil and Gas Consultants Ltd to support its Subsea Well Intervention Service (SWIS) members.
The agreement provides OSRL’s SWIS members with access to Genesis’s extensive knowledge and expertise in subsea systems engineering, installation, operation (process/flow assurance) and computational fluid dynamics – all to promote best-practice subsea well incident planning, preparedness and response.
OSRL and its members are focused on advancing and promoting industry response capabilities for subsea containment scenarios, especially where capping of an incident well may present known or unknown challenges. Genesis’s expertise in subsea production systems will help strengthen the industry’s capabilities, especially for this type of subsea response scenario.
The new agreement will also further enhance the policies and procedures previously established through the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers Global Industry Response Group, and adopted by the Subsea Well Response Project consortium. It establishes a best-practice approach to managing subsea well control incidents globally and reinforces OSRL as a critical partner for its members in subsea response assurance.
