Sea Alarm was invited to make a presentation at the IPIECA Oil Spill Working Group meeting in London on 11 November. IPIECA is the global oil and gas industry’s association for environmental and social issues and its Oil Spill Working Group, created in 1987 is a key international industry forum working on improving oil spill contingency planning and response worldwide on behalf of its members. Sea Alarm is recognised as a Partner Organisation of IPIECA.
At the meeting, Hugo Nijkamp gave an update on Sea Alarm’s activities and its plans for the future. The need to work closer with companies to improve preparedness for an oiled wildlife incident was stressed, and companies were encouraged to include wildlife aspects in their exercises.
