Oil Spill Response Limited to Partner with CTEH and CSA Ocean Sciences

Oil Spill Response Limited (OSRL) is partnering with two leading environmental consulting firms, CTEH and CSA Ocean Sciences (CSA), to provide its members with additional specialist monitoring and sampling (M&S) services.

These services cover the fields of human health, marine environmental monitoring, impact assessment and complementary spill response skills such as Shoreline Clean-up Assessment Technique (SCAT), crisis management and Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping.

“OSRL lives by the strategy of continuous improvement, including through innovative third-party solutions that widen our existing response toolbox and add value for our members. We are delighted to confirm the new arrangement with CTEH and CSA.," said Robert Limb, Chief Executive at OSRL. “Having this extra capability at our disposal will ensure members can access specialized services directly through their membership package, with the reassurance of working with fully vetted and trusted partners.”

OSRL’s strategic addition of CTEH and CSA services follows the release of the IOGP-IPIECA ‘Oil Spill Monitoring and Sampling’ (M&S) Good Practice Guide in 2020. IOGP-IPIECA published the guide in response to the need to establish M&S programs to collect and centralize baseline data. A robust, early intervention M&S program and the tools, training, and techniques to gather such data before, during and after a spill is of clear merit in determining the potential impact of the oil. Furthermore, it adds rigour to any monitoring programs around the potential impact on habitats, human health, and protected species.  

“For more than two decades, CTEH has proudly helped industries around the globe prepare for, respond to and recover from crisis events, natural disasters and other incidents,” said Cory Davis, CEO of CTEH. "This agreement with OSRL is a testament to our team’s experience, expertise and exemplary services.” 

Dr. Jodi Harney, CSA’s Energy Director, “Expansion of CSA’s strategic relationship with OSRL supports our mutual desire to serve the needs of the international offshore energy industry, to continually improve our offerings, and to collaborate on emerging ideas and technologies. We appreciate the opportunity and look forward to the work ahead.”

The environmental consulting firms signed the service agreements with OSRL during this year’s Clean Gulf Conference & Exhibition. CTEHRM Director Helen Dubach and Davis represented CTEH, and Dr Jodi Harney, energy director and senior scientist, represented CSA.
