Scandinavian Oil and Gas Magazine – Arctic Technologies and Solutions

The industry has made significant Arctic oil spill response advances through more than 90 years of Arctic operations. Moreover, the oil and gas industry has funded and conducted research to improve oil spill response technologies and methodologies with industry, government, academia, and stakeholders jointly involved for more than 50 years. To build on this existing research and continue improving the technologies and methodologies for Arctic oil spill response a Joint Industry Programme (JIP) charged with undertaking targeted research projects in identified priority areas, to further enhance the industry’s capabilities and coordination in the field of Arctic oil spill response, was formed.
