OSRL holds inaugural Aberdeen Members' Forum

Organisations and Associations - July 25, 2012

| More

Oil Spill Response Ltd (OSRL) recently hosted a technical forum, reaching out to Aberdeen-based members and UK regulators to discuss issues of mutual interest.

Some 30 representatives of our Aberdeen-based membership attended the event together with representatives of DECC and other interested parties.

Following the fallout from technical and regulatory changes in the post-Macondo world, now further compounded by recent incidents in the North Sea, holding the forum was therefore very timely and provided a unique opportunity to bring together operators, regulators and OSRL as responders to discuss technical response matters in a relaxed, informal setting.

The topics chosen were influenced by questions regularly posed to OSRL's Duty Managers and the Regional Representative by our Members and included:

In addition to updating OSRL's membership on latest technical developments which affect them, the forum had a twin objective to engage with our members in a format aligned with OSRL's APR aims.

In this regard it was a good opportunity to elicit firsthand feedback on OSRL's services and give both parties mutual assurance that response integration will be effective.
