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;...

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...

Oil in Ice: Transport, Fate, and Potential Exposure

University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) - Oil spilled in the arctic marine environment can be rapidly frozen into the ice sheet. The oil will in this way be to some extent preserved, in the sense that evaporation, dissolution, and degradation are expected to be greatly reduced. This implies that the oil will retain much of its potential acute toxicity upon release from the ice, either via transport in brine channels and/or eventual...

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 –...

Environmental Impacts From Arctic Oil Spills and Arctic Oil Spill Response Technologies

International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IAOGP) - In the event of an oil spill, there are always major concerns about the severity of environmental effects. In the Arctic, this concern is even higher because of the assumption that Arctic areas are more sensitive. Whether these areas are indeed fragile depends on many factors: how the oil behaves in varying ice concentrations, how species react to and interact with oil, their environments, and...

ARCN Yellow-billed Loon Contaminants Monitoring

National Park Service (NPS) - Arctic Network’s monitoring of the western Alaska YBLO population includes aerial surveys to determine populations occupancy and density, and assessment of contaminants burdens including but not limited to metals (e.g. mercury, Hg), persistent organic pollutants (POPs), organochlorine pesticides, perfluorinated hydrocarbons, polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) congeners, polybrominated diphenyl...

Algal toxins in Alaskan marine mammal populations: Assessing current and emerging exposure threats

North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) - Rationale: Current climate trends are likely to expand the geographic range and duration of bloom-favorable conditions in northern regions, making algal toxins a growing concern in the Alaskan marine food web, especially for marine mammal populations which are already declining or depleted. Overall Goal: The overall goal of this project is to characterize the spatial and temporal patterns of...

Arctic Cod Pilot Genetics and Toxicity Study (AK-11a)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - A greater understanding of the keystone species Arctic cod is necessary to fully assess the potential effects of offshore development in arctic waters.Conduct mitochondrial DNA profiles of Chukchi and Beaufort Sea Arctic cod samples presently held by John Nelson at the BC Canada DFO lab. Provide protocols and sampling supplies for field collection of central Beaufort Sea Arctic cod genetic...

Loss of Well Control Occurrence and Size Estimators for the Alaska OCS (AK-11-12)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - The Oil-Spill-Risk Analysis (OSRA) is a cornerstone to regional EISs, environmental assessments, and oil-spill-contingency planning. A fault-tree approach is used to extrapolate the historical non-Arctic spillage to Arctic conditions for Arctic NEPA analyses. The OSRA spill rate calculations, because of oil-spill issues, constitutes a significant portion of public comments submitted on lease...

Biodegradation and Transport of Crude Oil in Sand and Gravel Beaches of Arctic Alaska (AK-13-03-10)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - This study will provide information about the potential fate of crude oil on the Arctic coast. It will investigate transport processes through sediments, as well as degradation of crude oil by microorganisms. Additionally, BOEM analysts will use this information in NEPA analysis and documentation for Lease Sales, EPs and DPPs. The objectives of this study are to: Analyze the...

Mechanical Recovery of Oil in Ice

International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IAOGP) - Mechanical containment and recovery is considered the primary or preferred response strategy in many regions of the world. Containment booms are normally used in combination with a skimmer to remove oil from the water’s surface where it is temporarily stored before further treatment. The main challenge presented to mechanical recovery in ice is the difficulty of accessing the oil and,...
