Oil spill response Exercise in the Barents Sea

Simon Møksters vessel Stril Barents and the tankship Hilda Knutsen, both on charter for ENI Norge, recently conducted an oil spill exercise outside of Hammerfest.

The drill was conducted in order to train on the task of oil transfer from the oil recovery vessel, Stril Barents, over to the Tankship Hilda Knutsen. During a major oil spill, Stril Barents is able to collect 2000m3 of oil. When the tanks are full, the oil must be transferred to a tank ship so that more oil can be recovered.
This transfer is done using the transrec onboard the oil recovery vessl as can been seen on the Pictures below. The exercise took aprox. 3 hours and from the participants point of view this was a really good and educational drill.
