Effective Preparedness

Effective Preparedness

13 Mar 2018, 13:30 - 15:00

South Gallery Room 15 & 16

Chair: Richard Johnson, Technical Director, ITOPF

Personnel training and response planning need to add value for all stakeholders rather than just “tick a box”. With increasing pressure to demonstrate a full understanding of the environmental impacts of spills, relevant and credible scientific studies have never been more important. This session will look at the latest research techniques being employed and examine the findings of case studies and will also consider good practice in learning, development, assessment and planning that provides added value to all concerned.

Speakers include:

A Screening Framework for Oil Spill Impact Assessment and Research
Jon Moore, Marine Environmental Consultant, Coastal Assessment, Liaison & Monitoring

Introducing Spill Impact Mitigation Assessment (SIMA) for Oil Spill Strategy Development
Martin Cramer, Principal Emergency Response Consultant, ConocoPhillips

Environmental Damage Compensation in China Following Ship-Sourced Oil Spills
Ann Zhang, Technical Adviser, ITOPF 

Optimization of Response Strategies in the Emergency Response Planning Process for Crude Oil Spills: Compilation of Lab Data, Pilot Scale Experiments, Drift Modelling and Sensitivity Mapping
Anne Le Roux, Emergency Response Coordinator, Cedre
