Oil Spill Fundamentals

Oil Spill Fundamentals

12 Mar 2018, 11:00 - 14:45

South Gallery Room 16

Organised by OSRL and ITOPF

The Oil Spill Fundamentals Course jointly delivered by OSRL and ITOPF will introduce delegates to the first principles of responding to oil spills, including the key techniques in the responder toolkit and the principles and concepts that allow responders to determine the most appropriate strategy for a particular scenario. The concept of net environmental benefit analysis (NEBA) will be used to explore how decision makers can select response strategies that work with natural processes, and avoid causing more harm to the environment. Case studies will be used to demonstrate how these concepts have been applied in real incidents, and the lessons learned as a result.
