Often technical advances are made through key industry-academic alliances in a diverse range of engineering, medical and scientific disciplines. Oil spill response studies are no stranger to research programmes within the academic / R&D community and have advanced our knowledge, understanding and capability significantly over the last 50 years. This webinar discusses the merits and leverage potential of “Bridging Research to Response” and offers suggestions for future collaborations potentially adding value to all spill stakeholders.
The OSRL Shoreline Subject Matter Expert (SME) Core Group, together with guest speaker Paul Bunker from Chiron K9, introduce some of the latest innovations and developments in shoreline response. Using recent field experience, the group will discuss the continual evolution of Shoreline Clean-up Assessment Techniques (SCAT), its multi-role purpose and the meaningful visualisations produced to guide response technique selection. The Shoreline Response Programme steer and guide how OSRL’s shoreline assessment, response and restoration activities are managed in a single coherent approach.
Response Specialist, Nick Dyer will draw on the experience of Oil Spill Response Limited and REGENESIS groundwater technologies, and discuss how conventional spill response clean-up methods could affect groundwater and subsoil clean-up.
In order to update our members OSRL's response readiness under COVID 19, we hosted a Q&A session. In the session, Liam Harrington-Missin introduced the Response Readiness Dashboard and country plans that have been made available on the website. Global Logistics Manager, James Burroughs, Response Managers Paul Foley and Dave Rouse and SWIS Director Andy Myers answered member's questions about measures taken to mitigate any restrictions on our ability to mobilise personnel and equipment.
The global response to COVID-19 pandemic has seen unprecedented travel restrictions and the creation of second and third order consequences for international freight movement. As a global response organisation, OSRL is facing the challenge of finding safe and efficient ways to support its Membership and maintain its response services to spill incidents.
OSRL’s Global Aviation and Dispersants team explains the implications of market uncertainty and their actions taken to deal with the disruption created by the COVID-19 crisis. This webinar will look at continuity plans for aerial dispersant services and the Global Dispersant Stockpile specifically addressing;

In this webinar we shared OSRL lessons learned on remote Emergency Operations Centre mobilisation and remote member IMT support. We shared ways in which we can integrate with members during an incident or exercise.
As part of Staatsolie’s planned nearshore exploration drilling campaign for Blocks A, B, and C in Suriname, Staatsolie approached Oil Spill Response Limited to work with them on their oil spill preparedness activities. This case study highlights the preparedness services, successful delivery and positive learnings accomplished through the close collaboration between OSRL, Staatsolie, and its contractors.
OSRL was contracted by Shell for the provision of oil spill response equipment, for use at its offshore drilling activities in Bulgaria. As part of the hire agreement, training was provided to onshore and offshore personnel. While the crew were well prepared, the drilling campaign was concluded without incident. This case study discusses the equipment and training services provided, and highlights the successful delivery and learnings achieved through the close collaboration between Shell, OSRL and Shell’s dedicated contractors.
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.
