Arctic Oil Spill Response Technology: Joint Industry Programme (JIP)

The Arctic Oil Spill Response Technology Joint Industry Programme (JIP) was initiated in 2012 under the auspices of the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP), and completed in 2017. The programme built on over four decades of extensive research and experience to further improve Arctic oil spill response capabilities. The JIP provided a vehicle for sharing knowledge among the participants and disseminating information to a broad range of stakeholders.

The summary and synthesis reports provided below presents the JIP’s results within the context of historical research, and explains the broad significance of the JIP’s findings in improving Arctic response capabilities.

The final report for the remote sensing (RS) component of the JIP is also provided. This document covers a fully integrated experiment, testing a variety of RS tools for detecting oil from above and below sea-ice.

A link to the Arctic Oil Spill Response Technology website is for further information is provided.
