Paper - Talking technical, non-technically

Oil spills have been occurring for years and the oil and gas industry has developed a vast amount of technical expertise in dealing with them. Many of the main response strategies now have common placed principles that are looked at as industry best practice. With sound principles and a large depth of technical knowledge we now face a new challenge – how do we communicate this knowledge efficiently and effectively both inside the industry and also to external stakeholders?

Poster - Development and implementation of a shoreline assessment (SCAT) programme for a Tier 3 OSRO

Consistent and reproducible shoreline oiling assessments are critical for making decisions regarding shoreline treatment options and strategies. Industry recognised protocols such as the long established SCAT technique are embedded in many national contingency planning frameworks and are now considered best practice worldwide.

Paper - The risk based alternative to the prescriptive EDRC approach to oil spill preparedness and response

July, 2015 By: Paul Foley, Technical Manager (OSRL)

Paper - The risk based alternative to the prescriptive EDRC approach to oil spill preparedness and response

This paper explores the risk based approach to the development of oil spill preparedness, allowing mitigating measures to be tailored to the specific risks faced and offering an alternative approach to that offered by the more prescriptive and generic volume based approaches.

Paper - An Assessment of the Increasing Risk of Marine Oil Spills and the Existing Preparedness Capabilities in the Southeast Asian Region

July, 2015 By: Geeva Varghese

Paper - An Assessment of the Increasing Risk of Marine Oil Spills and the Existing Preparedness Capabilities in the Southeast Asian Region

This paper examines the increasing risks of oil spills from the growing vessel traffic and exploration and production activities in Southeast Asia against the current level of preparedness in the region. In doing so, the author will share the experience gained from working on various oil spill response planning and preparedness projects with the Governments and industry in the region with lessons learned, current developments and recommendation for improvements.
