6F: Technical Advances in Subsea Dispersant

Thursday, December 07 10:45 AM - 12:15 PM
Room: 351 F
Join us to follow the most recent scientific information regarding subsea dispersant use. This session will cover a variety of relevant topics including results of studies on toxicity of dispersed oil to deepwater organisms, effect of subsea dispersants on safety of well control operations, comparison of oil fate and transport with and without subsea dispersants, as well as subsea dispersants efficiency. This is the first of three inter-related sessions on subsea dispersant use.

6G: Navigating the “Approval“ Process for the Use of Oil Spill Response Tools

Thursday, December 07 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Room: 351 F
This session will describe the tools that can be used to request approval for response technologies including subsea dispersant with written approval. These tools include the "why is approval" required and more importantly why is it important. Also included are Comparative Risk Analysis (CRA), Spill Impact Mitigation Assessment (SIMA), and the API Recommended Practice for “Preparing Subsea Dispersant Injection Approval Applications”.
Chair:
Kelly Wilson, REM, CESCO, Vice President, CTEH RM
Speakers: Why is the Process so Complicated?
