Develop your tactical and strategic environmental skills and knowledge by exploring first-hand the impact of a major oil spill with those who attended the incident.

A unique and invaluable three day course delivered in Pembrokeshire, Wales, the site of the most recent UK Tier 3 oil spill incident involving a large scale shoreline impact. Using compelling evidence from detailed field studies conducted on the sites impacted by the MV Sea Empress Tanker disaster, this course compares and contrasts shorelines previously exposed to oil spills, visiting the sites impacted during the course.

 

This course is ideal for those holding an HSEQ position within the oil industry and personnel with an environmental responsibility in both preparedness and response.

 

  • Response team members with an environmental responsibility
  • Environmental Advisors
  • Stakeholders with environmental responsibilities
  • Agencies responsible for the protection of the environment
  • Academics or those with contingency planning roles   

During this course you will visit the major sites of oiling that occurred during the MV Sea Empress tanker incident in 1996, comparing and contrasting these shorelines. Jointly delivered by a Marine Biologist who played a key role in the original incident and continues to be involved with the restoration of the impacted eco-system, and a member of OSRL, who also had first-hand experience in the response.

 

This course will give you the knowledge and understanding in the following areas:

  • Impact of oiling on a range of shorelines and wildlife
