Spill Response in the Arctic Offshore
This publication has been prepared jointly by the American Petroleum Institute (API) Arctic Oil Spill task group and the Joint Industry Programme on Oil Spill Recovery in Ice (JIP). The JIP is aimed at creating international research programmes to further enhance industry knowledge and capabilities in the area of Arctic oil spill response and to raise awareness of existing industry OSR capabilities in the Arctic region. The JIP is sponsored by nine international oil and gas companies: BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Eni, ExxonMobil, Shell, Statoil, North Caspian Operating Company, and Total making it the largest pan-Industry project dedicated to this field of research and development. This report is intended as a compendium to describe the tools available for use by industry for response to an oil spill in the Arctic. The JIP will undertake various research projects that have been identified to improve industry capabilities and coordination in the area of Arctic oil spill response. Throughout this report, reference is made to other useful documents on specific aspects of spill response including conference proceedings and publications from organizations involved with spill response research.
