Who participated in the JIP

The Arctic Oil Spill Response JIP was sponsored by nine oil companies:

The program was managed by the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP) and coordinated by an executive steering committee comprised of representatives from the funding companies. Each Technical Working Group (TWG) was led by recognised subject matter experts with years of experience in oil spill response research and operations.

Combining efforts and knowledge in this five-year joint industry programme increased opportunities to test equipment, conduct large scale field experiments, develop oil spill response technologies and methodologies, and raise awareness of existing industry oil spill response capabilities in the Arctic region.
