The global distribution and assessment of major oil spill response resources

August 2015

Revision 2016

This document addresses Finding 9 of the OGP Global Industry Response Group (GIRG) report which recommended that industry conduct an assessment of potential exposure based on current Tier 2, Tier 3 and commercial response bases to help inform the potential location of any additional resources required. This finding was modified during the course of the project to include consideration of the resource in the context of a revised philosophy on tiered preparedness and response and the development of a tool for external assessment or self-assessment of the organization and capability of individual oil spill response organizations (OSROs).
