Spill Prevention and Response

Spill Prevention and Response Forum 2019

The Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board (C-NLOPB) hosted its first Spill Prevention and Response Forum in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador on December 3-4, 2019.

The Forum provided an opportunity for regulators, governments and those ‘on the water’ to undertake a collective review of lessons learned from spills in our offshore between April 2018 and August 2019.

The Forum featured over 100 participants from regulatory agencies and government departments, oil and gas industry companies that are, or will soon be, active in the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Area, along with fishing industry representatives.
