    Oil Spill Response & Control for Operators and Technicians (Inland Operations)

    • This course is intended to deliver a foundation of knowledge of immediate actions recommended for first-responders, to contain and stop an oil spill, in Oil & Gas Exploration & Production land-based operations.
    • The class will learn the actions to be taken at the initial discovery of a spill, depending on the surface facilities and petroleum processes in place in their location.
    • The Course includes case studies and desktop simulations of tactics, equipment, and actions required to contain an oil spill.
