Dispersant Testing Under Realistic Conditions

Key Components

  • State of knowledge review
  • Basin testing to evaluate dispersants in ice:
    • Using natural mixing energy
    • Using mixing energy to simulate the propeller wash of ice breakers
    • Using various dispersant products
  • Evaluation of dispersant injection for well control events
  • Bench-top testing to evaluate dispersant effectiveness after oil or oil-dispersant mixtures have been frozen in or on ice
  • Definition of the dispersant regulatory and permitting regulations in each Arctic nation/region
