Why You Should Attend

Arctic Oil Spill Prevention and Response Management

The Oil & Gas Industry is on the constant look out for new areas of exploration. Extreme climate conditions, remoteness, ice coverage, but also logistics, lack of infrastructure, governmental regulations and political instability are just some of the challenges that the industry is facing today in new frontiers such as the High North, Africa, the Mediterranean and the Middle East. Environmental consequences can be extremely dramatic if we canít stop the flow of a spill. Minimising clean up costs, improving restoration and assessing liability are the main concerns for operators. Companies are in need of specific guidelines to implement oil spill prevention strategies and undertake the most effective oil spill recovery.


This oil spill conference will analyse a variety of oil spill scenarios focusing on the environmental risks and offering practical solutions for oil spill emergency response. The risk of an oil spill is uncountable, however we can work on prevention and preparedness. A good contingency plan, innovative methodologies and response techniques are essential tools that will enable you to operate efficiently in case of the worst case scenario Ė a spill!
