Technical Information Sheet - Secondments

Major changes in the structure of many oil and energy companies has occurred through mergers, restructuring and the drive to maximise delivery at minimum cost.In many cases, this has caused a shortfall in experienced and skilled personnel, thus putting the industry under severe pressure as it strives to greatly improve its operational efficiency. Recognising the changes, we have increased our capacity to provide our members with specialist support for long-term or short-term projects through secondments.

Technical Information Sheet - 3D Oil Spill Modelling in OSCAR

May, 2017

Technical Information Sheet - 3D Oil Spill Modelling in OSCAR

The three dimensional (3D) Oil Spill Contingency And Response (OSCAR) model allows for subsea plume modelling. By combining the outputs of multiple oil spill trajectories, simulating temporally varying wind and current conditions, OSCAR produces statistical (stochastic) outputs from which worst case scenarios can be identified and planned for.
