An overview of OSRL’s Foundation and Continuation Course in collaboration with Eastern Canada Response Corporation and Alaska Clean Seas.
An overview of OSRL's first offshore cold weather exercise in partnership with Greenland Oil Spill Response (GOSR).
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.
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.
2015 was the second year OSRL continued working with ExxonMobil PNG Limited (EMPNG) to maintain and develop oil spill response preparedness activities at their facilities in Papua New Guinea.
Janurary 2016 sees CNOOC (China National Offshore Oil Corporation) mark a year since becoming an OSRL Band 1 Participant Member after acquiring Nexen. Read about the collaboration programme put together, which included a 5-week personnel secondment, to help both organisations gain a deeper understanding of each other, the benefits of OSRL membership and the importance of preparedness and response activities.
North Sea: This case study on a production incident in the North Sea illustrates how OSRL managed to integrate smoothly into a Member's response structure, giving them immediate access to critical resources, while planning for the worst case scenario.
MV Rena: This case study on a shipping incident in New Zealand explains how our ICS knowledge and experience from the Montara and Macondo responses were utilised effectively.
