Minimising the risk of spills

Offshore oil spills can delay contract cargo delivery and significantly add to project costs.

Physical damage to assets and the environment results in tanker and terminal downtime and costly clean-up operations.

Personnel injury can have short and long term consequences; likely resulting in litigation, diminished reputation, higher insurance premiums and investor costs.

All this can compromise the focus and performance of a business.
