Offshore Containment and Recovery Packages

Offshore containment and recovery removes oil from the environment and is the primary at-sea response strategy adopted by many governments around the world.

It works by using boom to contain and concentrate floating oil, and a skimmer to physically recover oil from the sea surface and pump it into a suitable temporary storage container – often a floating barge.

Offshore Containment & Recovery Packages

Conventional Containment                                                                                                   Conventional containment is a two vessel technique, better suited for high percentage surface oil coverage before oil begins to fragment. 

Package contents:

  • 200m Offshore Boom
  • Hydraulic Boom Reel
  • Power Pack and Hydraulic Air Inflator
  • Tow Bridles
  • Hydraulic Hoses Sets and Reel
  • Buoys
  • Spares Kits

High-speed Containment                                                                                                             Highly manoeuvrable and deployed using a single vessel with the use of a paravane; the high speed offshore containment and recovery package is capable of being deployed and implemented at higher speeds of up to four knots and in strong currents. The system is also well suited for recovering fragmented oil.

Offshore Recovery                                                                                                                         OSRL delivers robust offshore weir skimmers complete with oleophilic attachments if required. The hydraulic recovery device is complete with a diesel hydraulic power pack and hose sets. All ancillaries, such as guide ropes, buoys, hoses and PPE are included.

Package contents:

  • High Speed Containment System
  • Integrated Storage Bladder/Bag
  • Paravane and Bridles
  • Offloading Transfer Pump
  • Ancillaries and PPE Sets
  • Stored in DNV Certified Containers

Temporary Offshore Storage                                                                                                               In addition to the containment and recovery package, storage requirements should also be considered.

If onboard vessel storage is not an option, OSRL can supply either 5, 10, 25 or 50 cubic metre inflatable offshore storage barges. The barges may be offloaded, towed by the recovery vessel or anchored. The barges are stored in the recovery container, complete with the designated lifting gear, cover, tow bridles and air inflator.

  • Diesel Hydraulic Power Pack
  • Hydraulic Hose Sets and Reel
  • Ancillaries and PPE Sets
  • Spares Kits
