Gazprom Neft Joins International Arctic Oil Spill Response Technology Joint Industry Programme
24 March 2014
Gazprom Neft has become the first Russian company to join the Arctic Oil Spill Response Technology Joint Industry Programme (JIP). The four-year JIP was launched in December 2012 to carry out research in several areas, including studying the fate of dispersed oil under ice, dispersant testing under realistic conditions as well as oil spill detection and mapping in low visibility and ice.
The joint research will contribute to industry knowledge, broadening opportunities for testing equipment, conducting large-scale industrial experiments and developing technology and techniques for preventing oil spills in Arctic conditions.
The programme is managed by the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (OGP) and coordinated by an executive steering committee comprised of representatives from the association members, the world’s largest oil and gas companies.
Each Technical Working Group (TWG) is led by recognised subject matter experts with years of experience in oil spill response research and operations.
Combining efforts and knowledge in this four-year joint industry programme increases 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.
