This paper will highlight the lessons learnt from various responses, which comprises the element of wildlife response, that OSRL was actively involved in and how these lessons have been used to enhance oiled wildlife response capability in OSRL to better serve Asia.
As the OSR-JIP represents the latest GPGs developed for the oil and gas industry, we decided to test the applicability of the GPGs for these types of operations.
This study presents two examples on how the principles and response strategies outlined in the various GPGs can be easily be extended to manage and mitigate the oil spill risks from facilities located inland and nearshore.
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.
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.
