The KrisEnergy-operated Apsara oil field is Cambodia’s first hydrocarbon development, which could mark an unprecedented milestone in the economic growth of the Southeast Asian nation. OSRL is fortunate to witness and play a role in this significant event by advising the first upstream producer (KrisEnergy) in Cambodia in the planning and writing of the Oil Spill Contingency Plan (OSCP).
Oil Spill Response Limited (OSRL) conducted a Capability Review for Puma Energy PNG Refining Ltd (PEPNG) for their refineries and terminals situated in Port Moresby and Lae in Papua New Guinea (PNG).
This study revisited the implementation of OSRL recommendations on Tier 1 capability for PEPNG which was conducted in 2016 and explored the potential preparedness and response capability improvements, with focus on Tier 2 capability.

OSRL was engaged by Thailand’sIESG (Oil Industry Environmental Safety Group Association) to assess its oil spill response equipment stockpile and its capability to support in-country oil spill responses, up to Tier 2. Thailand’s Tier 2 capability is unique; representing a coalition between the government, IESG, and its constituent member organisations.
The following case study highlights the scale of the capability review which was completed and the resulting improvement recommendations delivered to all three parties regarding their current equipment stockpile management in terms of quantity, strategic placement and maintenance regime.
The OSRL team worked with Maersk Oil to develop an Incident Management System in complete conformance with the good practice guide, fit for the size and complexity of its operations and the outlook of the organisation's senior leaders.
OSRL participated in a five-day state-level exercise called the Exercise Ningaloo Challenge, led by Western Australia (WA) Department of Transport (DoT), under the auspices of Quadrant Energy in September 2017.
A key objective of the exercise was to validate the response arrangement detailed in WA DoT’s Offshore Petroleum Industry Guidance Notes, which provide a structured framework to enable an integrated cross jurisdiction response to a ‘Level 3 Marine Oil Pollution’ incident comprising multiple stakeholders. Quadrant Energy was invited to demonstrate their capability to co-manage the response.
Oil Spill Response Limited (OSRL) conducted a Global Capability Review for Compañía Española de Petróleos (CEPSA) in 2016.
