The contamination of seawater due to an oil pour, as a result of an accident, human error, or natural calamity, is termed an oil spill. Oil is an important energy source that needs to be transported in huge volumes through ships across the ocean and via pipelines across the land. There is always a probability of oil spill during transportation owing to inter-vessel collisions, fire incidents, or thunderstorms causing damage to oil tankers, resulting in a tremendous volume of oil being dispensed into the environment, especially the marine ecosystem. The responsibility for spill prevention, management, response, and environmental protection is shared by every individual and business that produces, transports, or uses a potentially hazardous material. Commitment and coordination are keys to success, and, as such, are the centerpieces of the National Contingency Plan and the National Response System. This training programme on oil spill management and response examines different technologies and readiness plans that are necessary at an organizational level to handle the oil spill.
