With a current global oil demand of over 95 million barrels of oil per day, oil spill risks exist in exploration and production, transportation, storage and distribution segments of the value chain. Industry spends considerable focus, investment and action on the prevention of oil spills. However, part of the risk and potential impact reduction is to effectively prepare for and be able to rapidly respond to an oil spill event quickly, efficiently and effectively any where in the world. As an industry cooperative with a global remit, OSRL must train and prepare its personnel to respond any where in the world including those locations where the climatic conditions might be considered extreme from either extreme heat or extreme cold.
