Shell Launches New Oil Spill Response Animation

Shell has developed unprecedented Arctic oil spill response contingency plans. This animation shows the plan in action for the unlikely worst case discharge scenario in the Beaufort Sea.

The following animation depicts Shell assets responding to a variety of spill response scenarios in the Beaufort Sea. While conditions and scenarios vary, the equipment featured in this animation are exact at the time of this posting.
