The literature on oil spill risk analysis is reviewed. Various results on the locational distribution of oil spills, spill frequencies and spill volumes are provided. A comprehensive methodological framework is developed for analyzing oil spill risk to a given geographical region. Results show that the frequency of large oil spill can then be reduced to E−05 per year, i.e. % of the base case value, and this is well within E−04 per year level. Recommendations to minimize oil spill risk during DP shuttle tanker direct offloading operations are Cited by: 1. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Smith, Richard A. Oilspill risk analysis model of the U.S. Geological Survey (OCoLC) Material Type. Oil Spill Risk Assessment (OSRA) is a basic approach for Risk Management. An OSRA was established by the Egyptian National Oil Spill Contingency Plan (NOSCP) in , which did not include all the sources of oil spills and whose results are considered as underestimates.

  The concept of enterprise risk management is founded upon a tone at the top set by executives who believe in and support a corporate culture that raises awareness about key risks and how to handle them throughout the organization. In BP’s case, while the CEO called for increased risk management, he never delivered. At the Deepwater Horizon. Get this from a library!

Petroleum contamination is a growing environmental concern that harms both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. However, the public and regulatory and scientific communities have given more attention to the contamination of marine habitats. This is because marine oil spills can have a serious economic impact on coastal activities, as well as on those who exploit the resources . An oil-spill risk analysis was conducted to determine the relative environmental hazards of developing oil in different regions of the Kodiak Island Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) lease area. The study analyzed the probability of spill occurrences, likely paths of oil slicks, and locations of resources vulnerable to spilled oil.

Oil spill risk is a combination of the probability that a spill will occur and the consequences or impacts of that spill. Oil spills can have such different environmental and socioeconomic impacts based Oil-spill risk analysis book the specific circumstances of each by: 3.

The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico that followed the explosion of the exploration platform Deepwater Horizon on 20 April was the largest accidental oil spill so far. In this paper we evaluate the risk of such very severe oil spills based on global historical data from our Energy-Related Severe Accident Database (ENSAD) and investigate if an accident of this size Cited by: The identification and evaluation of oil spill risk is important for contingency planning, as well as for the decision-making processes inherent in spill risk management.

It needs to encompass both the probability of oil spills occurring under a number of types of circumstances, along with the potential consequences or impacts of the oil spillage. Enables Non-scientific officers to understand the science they use on a daily basis.

Multi-disciplinary approach covering fields as diverse as biology, microbiology, chemistry, physics, oceanography and toxicology.

Covers the science of oil spills from risk analysis to cleanup and through the effects on the environment.

Oil Spill Risk Analysis Model (OSRAM) Information to Be Used In Oil Spill Response Plans A Notice to Lessees, Operators, and Pipeline Right-Of-Way Holders (NTL) was effective on Aug (BSEE NTL N06) that provides additional guidance on the review and update of Oil Spill Response Plans (OSRP).

Per-gallon oil spill costs are inversely related to spill size. Regression formula used to estimate per-gallon cost. Oil type impacts all cost categories. Oil behavior varies by medium type. Potential impact depends on toxicity, mechanical injury potential, and persistence.

Oil type character and behavior integrated into oil type cost Size: KB. The Bureau assesses oil-spill risks associated with offshore energy activities off the U.S.

continental coast and Alaska by calculating spill trajectories and contact probabilities. These analyses address the likelihood of spill occurrences, the transport and fate of any spilled oil, and the environmental impacts that might occur as a result of the spill. Risk Analysis: A Quantitative Guide is a comprehensive guide for eh risk analyst and decision maker.

based on the author's extensive experience in solving real-world risk problems, this book is an invaluable aid to the risk analysis practitioner. by providing the building blocks of risk-based thinking the author guides the reader through the steps necessary to produce a realistic risk Reviews: Preventing Oil Spills and Other Disasters by Risk Analysis of the Consequences and Probability of Failure: A Look at the BP Oil Spill in the Gulf Coast TASA ID: Risk assessment in the oil industry is a potentially useful tool to minimize failures, both equipment and human, and combines methods to quantify the costs of those failures with the probability of the failures.

Risk Analysis presents an accessible and concise guide to performing risk analysis, in a wide variety of field, with minimal prior knowledge required.

Forming an ideal companion volume to Aven's previous Wiley text Foundations of Risk Analysis, it provides clear recommendations and guidance in the planning, execution anduse of risk analysis. While oil is a necessary risk in a complex society, recent and avoidable major oil releases have demonstrated that serious improvements in oil spill response.

Risk Analysis Calculator. The Alaska Oil Spill Risk Analysis Calculator is a tool to enable strategic planning for geographic locations based on environmental vulnerability, theoretical spill sizes, and spill probabilities.

It is the first step in narrowing the focus on certain regions for certain spill types. The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management produces oil-spill risk analyses (OSRAs) for proposed Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) oil and gas lease sales and developmental activities.

These analyses estimate the potential oil-spill risks that may be associated with offshore activities that occur once leases are awarded. In the context of oil spill risk assessment, it can be expressed as the combination of the probability that a particular spill event will occur and the.

Book Description Oil Spill Science and Technology, Second Edition, delivers a multi-contributed view on the entire chain of oil-spill related topics from oil properties and behaviors, to remote sensing through the management side of contingency planning and communicating oil spill risk perceptions.

the local level is an essential form of oil spill communications, in addition to traditional crisis communications, assuming an important goal going forward is to improve spill response by more quickly and effectively addressing people’s questions, perceptions, fears, and knowledge gaps about oil spill risks.

As with any kind of risk, oil spill risk assessment is inherently judgmental and no analytic method can eliminate the need for judgment. This paper compares representative examples of oil spill risk assessments with regard to decisions about data, variables, functional relations, and uncertainty.

The BP Gulf Oil Spill: A Risk Management Debacle. The BP Gulf oil spill is the worst risk management story, and the best risk management story. It is the best risk management case study: it illustrates vividly how a working risk management program could have (would have) prevented the debacle — not in a “hindsight” manner, but rather in a factual and clearly.

We perform quantitative oil spill risk assessments using state-of-the art 3D oil spill modeling tools combined with up-to-date species and habitat distribution and sensitivity data. Spill modelling can be preceded by blowout and kill studies, and well-specific assessments based on reservoir conditions, benchmarking analysis, statistical models.
