IOGP and IPIECA recently issued a new report, Report 520: Oil Spill Preparedness and Response: An Introduction, which provides a framework for effective oil spill preparedness, response and restoration. It describes the key elements used by the industry to underpin this framework and references the good practice guides on oil spill preparedness and response.
The IPIECA-IOGP series of good practice guides on oil spill preparedness and response summarizes consensus views on good practice for a range of oil spill preparedness and response topics. The series aims to help align industry practices and activities, inform stakeholders and serve as a communication tool to promote awareness and education. This report, originally published in 2015, has been update to incorporate guidance on subsea well intervention and Arctic response.
The report is available to download from the IOGP Bookstore.
