Oilspill in ice – what’s next?

Posted on 23/04/2015  •  News Categories: General News

For the first time scientists are now conducting a practical experiment to study the effects of different ways of dealing with oil spill on Arctic ecosystems. What is unique with this project is that different dispersants and burned oil are actually frozen into the sea ice. The research team will be measuring the effect from these different dispersants on marine species like algae, fish and plankton. The project will also study the ability for oil weathering by local bacteria. The aim of the project is to inform best practice in case of oil spill in ice-covered parts of the Arctic. The project is led by the research institution Akvaplan-niva in Tromsø on commission from the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (OGP). The project is part of a large program for Arctic oil spill in which BP, Chevron, ConocoPhilips, ENI, ExxonMobil, NCOC, Shell, Statoil and Total participate. [...] Read More
