The 29th September, MMB organized a Oil Spill Seminar in Stavanger.
We heard about the experiences the Norwegian Coastal Administration (NCA) gained after the accident of “Full City” in 2009, and their views on a governmental dispersant capacity, as they belive it will be a supplement to the current national Oil Spill Response in Norway.
We got an introduction to NOFO strategy for combating oil spills in the Arctic, as well as the organization of Oil Spill Response in Norway. We heard SINTEF provide information on recent research on combating oil spills in the Arctic. And last but not least, we heard Nicholas present the results of the Kill Spill project that has lasted over four years now, focusing on “green” combating of oil spills as an alternative to mechanical and chemical response.
It was a very interesting seminar.
