OSRL was engaged by Thailand’sIESG (Oil Industry Environmental Safety Group Association) to assess its oil spill response equipment stockpile and its capability to support in-country oil spill responses, up to Tier 2. Thailand’s Tier 2 capability is unique; representing a coalition between the government, IESG, and its constituent member organisations.
The following case study highlights the scale of the capability review which was completed and the resulting improvement recommendations delivered to all three parties regarding their current equipment stockpile management in terms of quantity, strategic placement and maintenance regime.
The OSRL team worked with Maersk Oil to develop an Incident Management System in complete conformance with the good practice guide, fit for the size and complexity of its operations and the outlook of the organisation's senior leaders.
OSRL participated in a five-day state-level exercise called the Exercise Ningaloo Challenge, led by Western Australia (WA) Department of Transport (DoT), under the auspices of Quadrant Energy in September 2017.
A key objective of the exercise was to validate the response arrangement detailed in WA DoT’s Offshore Petroleum Industry Guidance Notes, which provide a structured framework to enable an integrated cross jurisdiction response to a ‘Level 3 Marine Oil Pollution’ incident comprising multiple stakeholders. Quadrant Energy was invited to demonstrate their capability to co-manage the response.
Oil Spill Response Limited (OSRL) conducted a Global Capability Review for Compañía Española de Petróleos (CEPSA) in 2016.
The Capability Review was part of an initiative to identify any gaps in oil spill preparedness and response capability in some of CEPSA’s Exploration and Production assets around the world.
Exxon Neftegas Limited required the planning and facilitation of a large scale oil spill exercise involving a number of stakeholders. Oil Spill Response Limited was contracted to design and facilitate the exercise. This case study highlights the scale of the exercise and challenges encountered, level of realism in the scenario, successful delivery and learning achieved through the close collaboration between client, OSRL and other specialist contractors.
In late 2015, OSRL began assisting Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) to conduct a capability review as the company formed an oil spill response management team. During the first half of 2016, OSRL continued to support KOC in the development of their oil spill response capability. Find out more through the case study.
An overview of OSRL's first offshore cold weather exercise in partnership with Greenland Oil Spill Response (GOSR).

Janurary 2016 sees CNOOC (China National Offshore Oil Corporation) mark a year since becoming an OSRL Band 1 Participant Member after acquiring Nexen. Read about the collaboration programme put together, which included a 5-week personnel secondment, to help both organisations gain a deeper understanding of each other, the benefits of OSRL membership and the importance of preparedness and response activities.
The contingency planning process is a structured approach to developing a spill response capability. It allows an effective initial response to an oil spill, in addition to sustaining an ongoing response proportionate to the risk.
