    Dispersants: surface application

    April 2015

    Dispersant use can be an effective way of minimizing the overall ecological and socio-economic damage, by preventing oil from reaching coastal habitats and shorelines and enhancing the natural biodegradation processes that ultimately assimilate oil into the environment. What dispersants are and how they work when applied to oil slicks on the sea’s surface are described, including their capabilities and limitations. The need for regulation, the advantages of preplanning and advance authorization, operational procedures and monitoring during their use are highlighted.

    Contingency planning for oil spills on water

    April 2015

    Oil spill contingency planning is the process of developing a suitable spill response capability that is in compliance with the local regulatory framework and commensurate with the oil spill risks of an organization or facility. This document provides guidance on the contingency planning process for potential oil spills in or on water following an accidental release of oil to a marine or aquatic environment, whether that be during the handling, transport, production or storage of oil products.

    Inland Response: Aquatic Environments

    February 2015

    This document presents an overview of inland oil spill response in aquatic environments (freshwater rivers and streams, lakes and ponds, wetlands and estuarine water bodies and their associated shores and banksides) identifying similarities to marine response and highlighting unique issues pertinent to inland spills. The document addresses the response phase of inland incidents, where actions are undertaken to ensure safety, minimize the immediate spread and threat of a spill and deploy techniques to clean-up spilled oil in aquatic environments. It does not address spills to terrestrial environments and the possible remediation actions which may be considered where oil has contaminated the ground.
