Autonomous Underwater Vehicle's (AUV)

Oil Spill Response Limited (OSRL) can provide its members with Autonomous Underwater Vehicle capability. AUV’s can be mobilised rapidly and can be operational soon after spill events have been identified, communicating near real-time information to a secure web-portal.

Surveillance Kite Package

Surveillance Kite Package

The challenges faced with existing tools led OSRL to investigate and develop a kite surveillance package. Kites can be utilised where other tools may be restricted in use due to the regulatory environment/requirements, cost implications and availability of other surveillance assets.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicle’s (UAV)

Unmanned Aerial Vehicle’s (UAV)

Oil Spill Response Limited (OSRL) can provide its members with Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) capability. They can provide a distinct advantage during a spill response when compared to traditional methods of surveillance for certain scenarios.

Case study: Application of GPG for Inland Nearshore Operations

Case study: Application of GPG for Inland Nearshore Operations

As the OSR-JIP represents the latest GPGs developed for the oil and gas industry, we decided to test the applicability of the GPGs for these types of operations.


This study presents two examples on how the principles and response strategies outlined in the various GPGs can be easily be extended to manage and mitigate the oil spill risks from facilities located inland and nearshore.

Case study: Maximising the use of Containment and Recovery systems in rivers with enhanced encounter techniques

July, 2017

Case study: Does the current global training curriculum meet the needs of exploration and production?

Spills that occur in estuaries and in the lower courses of rivers have the potential to impact sensitive shoreline resources.When responding to incidents in these locations, maximising the use of containment and recovery equipment to help protect sensitive resources is paramount.

In 2015 and 2016, OSRL investigated different methods for maximising the use of containment and recovery equipment in rivers and estuaries. Three techniques were tested using active boom recovery systems and ancillary equipment in various locations in the United Kingdom and France.

Case study: Using the Tiered Preparedness & Response framework to support incident management decisions

July, 2017

Case study: Using the Tiered Preparedness & Response framework to support incident management decisions

The model of Tiered Preparedness and Response has evolved in recent years into

the new TPR framework. The oil spill preparedness world now has this new model successfully embedded into the contingency planning process. But how can it be used to good effect in a response?

Case Study: Tullow Oil Ghana conduct exercise with OSRL support

Case Study: Tullow Oil Ghana conduct exercise with OSRL support

As part of Tullow Ghana Limited’s (TGL) continued commitment towards oil spill and emergency response preparedness, an annual exercise was conducted over a four day period in November 2015, with collabrated support from a variety of OSRL resources.
