To respond effectively to the specific conditions presented during an oil spill, spill responders have used a variety of response options—including mechanical recovery of oil using skimmers and booms, in situ burning of oil, monitored natural attenuation of oil, and dispersion of oil by chemical dispersants.

These include topics such as oil emulsion formation, oil evaporation, treating agent testing and use, studies of oil analysis and fingerprinting, in-situ burning of oil, oil spill remote sensing, and personal protection equipment.

These changes and advancements in understanding the science and engineering of oil spills are the focus of this book on Oil Spills First Principles. They are Prevention, based upon adoption of the safety culture, and Best Response, utilizing scientific, technical and environmental data and information.

An evaluation of the efficacy of the Louisiana berms project (and the other oil spill response strategies used during the DWH oil spill) by the staff of the Oil Commission found that the berms were not an effective response technology based on a cost-benefit analysis. They concluded that the scope and scale of the berms proposed were far too Cited by: 1.

About this book. Provides a scientific basis for the cleanup and for the assessment of oil spills. Enables Non-scientific officers to understand the science they use on a daily basis.

Multi-disciplinary approach covering fields as diverse as biology, microbiology, chemistry, physics, oceanography and toxicology. This book is published approx every 3 years. This directory has been in publication since and is the only directory dedicated to listing oil spill contractors world wide.

The book spans pages, and lists the contact details of over 1, oil spill clean up contractors in 50 countries including North America and Canada. This publication is a comprehensive review of the problems posed by marine oil spills and the potential response measures. It will benefit anyone involved in training programmes, contingency planning or actual response to oil spills.

Chemical dispersion can shorten the response time to an oil spill, thus reducing the chances that the oil will move further on the water surface and thereby protecting sensitive areas.

Rapid dispersion of oil can prevent the oil from reaching shorelines, which are difficult to clean and where the greatest environmental damage caused by oil spills occurs. Prior to the Exxon Valdez oil spill inarctic and subarctic spill response was in its infancy, and documented research into the environmental consequences of terrestrial spills in cold.

The monitoring of natural recovery processes after an oil spill without active intervention (natural attenuation) must be considered a valid response option under certain circumstances. If oil has impacted a sensitive shoreline such as a wetland, which precludes the use of invasive cleanup operations.

Oil Spill Response Limited (OSRL) is the largest international industry-funded oil spill response cooperative which exists to respond to oil spills wherever in the world they may occur, by providing oil spill preparedness, oil spill response and subsea well intervention services.
