Great interest in oil spill protection task force
More than 130 people have expressed their interest in taking part in the new IGSA task force, organised by the Norwegian Clean Seas Association for Operating Companies (NOFO), and set up to combat serious incidents of pollution along shorelines in the event of a major oil spill. Forty individuals have now been selected and will soon be starting training.
NOFO, Eni Norge and Statoil are responsible for this innovative step in the field of Norwegian oil spill protection activities.
“Our aim is that our contingency strategy for the Goliat project shall be robust, effective and adapted to local conditions. This task force is just one of the new components which will guarantee these requirements and raise the level of emergency oil spill preparedness in Finnmark. In other words, now that the task force has been established, and the training of the 40 selected personnel underway, an important piece in our contingency strategy jigsaw is now in place”, says Ole Hansen in Eni Norge.
