Dispersant Testing Under Realistic Conditions

International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IAOGP) - Dispersion of oil using either chemical or mineral additives (dispersants) can be an effective way to enhance the natural biodegradation process to remove spilled oil from marine environments. Research over several decades has shown that when applied properly, these additives can be as effective in near-freezing waters as they are in temperate waters. In many cases – including in the Arctic –...

In-Situ Burning of Oil in Ice – Affected Waters

International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IAOGP) - Controlled in-situ burning (ISB) of an oil slick as a response technology has been researched and employed in one form or another at a variety of oil spills since the late 1950s, including limited use during the Exxon Valdez accident and more extensive use during the Deepwater Horizon incident. Many researchers and practitioners believe that ISB is especially suitable in ice conditions;...

Behavior of Oil Spills in Ice and Implications for Arctic Spill Response

International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IAOGP) - The paper reviews the history of research into the behavior spills in ice covered waters and documents our current state of knowledge, drawing on the findings from a number of milestone field experiments conducted over the past 40 years. In particular the paper focuses on the unique aspects of spill behavior in different ice regimes that can both hinder and benefit spill response, depending on...

Adaptation of Arctic Circulation Model (NT-08-02)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - BOEM proposes to lease within the Beaufort and Chukchi Sea Planning Areas. To maintain its state-of-the-art in oil-spill-risk analysis, BOEM seeks to take advantage through time of the increasing skill of circulation models supported by more and better data. BOEM partnered with NOPP in 2007 to produce a high-resolution circulation model covering Arctic OCS waters. The study produced an eddy...

Oil Spill Detection and Mapping in Low Visibility and Ice

International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IAOGP) - Accurate oil-slick detection and mapping are particularly important for Arctic spills, as oil may be hidden from view under snow and ice during periods of almost total darkness. Conversely, close to 24 hours of daylight in the spring and summer months can in fact help to facilitate the remote sensing and monitoring of spilled oil during breakup and open-water periods. However, fog and low...
