OSRL to support Subsea Well Intervention Service members

DSC 0180 9900000000079e3cOil Spill Response Ltd (OSRL), an international co-operative specialising in tackling oil spills, has signed a new ‘Strategic Cooperation Agreement’ with engineering company Wood

With this agreement, OSRL aims to support its Subsea Well Intervention Service (SWIS) members.

The agreement provides OSRL’s SWIS members with access to Wood’s knowledge and expertise in subsea systems engineering, installation, operation (process/flow assurance) and computational fluid dynamics – all to promote best-practice subsea well incident planning, preparedness and response.

OSRL and its members are focused on advancing and promoting industry response capabilities for subsea containment scenarios, especially where capping of an incident well may present known or unknown challenges.

Wood’s expertise in subsea production systems along with its global experience in capping and containment principals, practices and equipment will help strengthen the industry’s capabilities, especially for this type of subsea response scenario.

The new agreement will also further enhance the policies and procedures previously established through the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers Global Industry Response Group and adopted by the Subsea Well Response Project consortium.

It establishes a best-practice approach to managing subsea well control incidents globally and reinforces OSRL as a critical partner for its members in subsea response assurance.
