OIL SPILLS AND THE OFFSHORE OIL INDUSTRY
The recent extensive activity in the North Sea has led to increasing public concern about the possible consequences of a major oil spill from offshore exploration and production. Much is being done by those involved in offshore operations, especially in the North Sea, to reduce the risk of pollution and if oil spills do occur, to minimize their effects. This paper considers such major factors as the cause of oil spills, and the ecological effects of the oil that is spilled into the marine environment. The contingency planning to combat oil spills is also dealt with.
