The Oil Spill Prevention and Response Advisory Group (OSPRAG) advocated the use of a tiered tool kit for response to oil spill incidents on the UKCS. The tool kit consists of ‘tools’ which are available to operators for different incident scenarios. The relevant elements of the toolkit are included as the response strategies to an incident described in the Oil Pollution Emergency Plans (OPEP).
The Oil Spill Response Tool Kit contains the following RIGs:
- Aerial Dispersant Application
- Aerial Surveillance
- At Sea Containment & Recovery
- Shoreline Response
- Subsea Dispersant Application
- Vessel Dispersant Application
The Tool Kit also contains a guide to Waste Management Strategic Planning.
