Given the current and future level of exploration and production activity, should we have a dedicated harmonised global training curriculum on oil spill response for global exploration and production activities?
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.
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?
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.
View the demo of our NEW Oil Spill Incident Controllers course designed specifically for the Australian Oil and Gas operators. The aim of this online course is to outline the actions and considerations that Offshore Installation Managers (OIMs) and other offshore personnel responsible for assessing oil spills and their consequences, activating contingency plans and reporting pollution incidents to authorities need to undertake within the initial stages of response.
There are seven topics to take, followed by an assessment. Because this is a demo, you will only have access up-to section 3.
In this webcast, our Aberdeen Representative, Simon Blaen and Aberdeen Consultant, Dougal Fraser explain the DECC training requirements for UK Operators, including who needs to be trained and to what level, as well as detailing how OSRL can help meet the requirements.
Exhibition & Conference in Perth, Australia for the Subsea Repair, Remediation and Intervention stream.

Since 2009, Oil Spill Response Limited (OSRL) has provided a Tier 2 oil spill response service for the Gibraltar Port Authority through local service provider Brightside Services Limited. Read about how the service ensures that the port is ready to respond to Tier 2 oil spills, whilst at the same time, enhances its operational cohesion with OSRL as its Tier 3 response provider.
Catch up on our Onshore Oil Pipeline Preparedness and Response webinar when our oil spill expert, Tristan Barston, gave an overview of the basic principles involved in preparing for, and responding to, oil spills from onshore oil pipelines. He also shared his experiences on how companies have addressed specific issues in various geographical locations and commercial situations around the globe.
Catch up on our Incident Management Systems (IMS) webinar when our oil spill experts gave an overview of OSRL’s preparedness and response experiences in incident management; including case studies of how we have developed understanding and practical application of IMS amongst those with whom we've worked as well as an overview of our NEW IMS-100 e-learning course.
