Oil spill preparedness and response

IPIECA has been working for over 30 years to harness the oil and gas industry’s collective expertise and technology on oil spill preparedness and response. While prevention is always the ultimate goal, IPIECA gives equally high priority to developing the capability to respond to spills. IPIECA develops good practice and facilitates industry forums to share oil spill preparedness and response.
