Oil is among the most important energy sources in the world and because of its uneven distribution, it is transported by ships across the oceans and by pipelines across the lands. This has resulted in several accidents in the past while handling or transferring oil during transportation and breaking of pipelines while drilling, at ports, and in drydock facilities. All spills have an impact on the environment and human health; however, the severity depends on the quantities of spills, the location of spills, surrounding ecosystems, etc.

Most countries have legislation in place for the management of spills, which includes prevention as well as preparedness and response. This course is designed to explain the key aspects required for the management of marine oil spills. This course focuses on the complex but vital responsibilities of oil spill management.


This course will give you knowledge and understanding in the following areas:

  • Fundamentals of the marine oil spill.
  • Being prepared and responding to marine oil spill emergencies.
  • Management systems and pollution management
  • Environmental awareness, response monitoring, and termination of clean-up operations.
  • Effective incident control including initial assessment, strategic planning, and logistical and operational management
  • The legal and financial implications of spill response
  • Dealing with authorities and handling the media
  • Back to business
