The Protocol Concerning Co-operation and Development in Combating Oil Spills in the Wider Caribbean Region (the Oil Spills Protocol) was drafted and adopted concurrently with the Cartagena Convention in 1983. The objective of the Protocol is to strengthen national and regional preparedness and response capacity of the nations and territories of the region. The Protocol also serves to foster and facilitate co-operation and mutual assistance among the nations and territories in cases of emergency in order to prevent and control major oil spill incidents.

Oil spills

Standing 210 m high, the world’s largest oil platform was suddenly wracked by gas explosions - killing 10 crewmen - and then slowly, it began to topple. In the immediate aftermath of the March 2001 accident, Brazil held its breath, anticipating further disaster. This collapse threatened to unleash a 1.5 million cubic litre oil spill on the lush coastline of Rio de Janeiro.
In the event, the tower toppled slowly enough to prevent an oil slick. Salvage workers stopped the rig from sinking, and the oil company placed boats and absorption barriers on the water around it to head off any spill. It was a lucky escape, but no-one can be lucky every time. An estimated 4.5 million tonnes of oil makes it into the ocean every year, degrading water quality and harming marine and coastal ecologies. In our oil-based civilisation some accidents are inevitable, but such platform disasters or tanker crashes account for only 7% of total pollution. The largest single cause is deliberate dumping at sea during tanker cleaning, equivalent to a full tanker disaster every week. Land-based discharges are another major cause. International conventions, including the UN Law of the Sea, outlaw such dumping but rules require policing. Some parts of the world use aircraft surveillance, but the ocean is a big place and detection rates are low. Space observation offers an alternative solution and early warning when a slick threatens a coastline.

Selected members of our experienced oiled wildlife response team travel to spill locations in emergencies and to establish and train volunteers from the affected region in the recovery and rehabilitation of the local wildlife. Of course, the desired way to handle a spill is to be prepared before time! The members of the team travel to locations to train local volunteers BEFORE it happens! (See "Oil Spill Training" from the menu at left.) But....if it has already happened, the recovery team will need the following to have a successful recovery effort:

Site selection if very important!
A site must be selected that is close to the spill area and also close to a major road, if possible (supplies must be trucked in and contaminated water must be trucked out.) In addition, the site must provide the following definable areas:

Oil Spills, Thrills and Chills!
Five oil spills in the first half of 1990 dumped a total of 1,045,000 gallons (3,000 tons) of heating oil, fuel oil, and crude oil into the Arthur Kill and the Kill Van Kull. Important to the prevention of future spills is the "fair tide" rule which gives right of way to the vessel with least maneuverability, stopping marine collisions before they have a chance to happen. The real-time currents and water levels utilized by the Coast Guard to enforce this rule at Bergen Point will serve also to provide the source of real-time information necessary for our students to plot and predict the path of a simulated oil spill.

With the massive Persian Gulf War oil spill of January 1991 and the Exxon Valdez spill of March 1989, public attention has once again focused on this recurring environmental scourge. Are such massive oil spills more common today, and just how damaging are these spills to the environment? Catastrophic oil spills are nothing new. The recent Persian Gulf oil well spill, last estimated at 68 million gallons by the International Maritime Organization, may be smaller than a 1983 oil spill in the Gulf of approximately 80 million gallons that occurred during the Iran Iraq War. The largest spill yet occurred in 1979 when about 147 million gallons of oil gushed from an offshore well platform in the Gulf of Mexico. In comparison, the Exxon Valdez tanker spill, although considered massive, totaled only about 7.5 percent of this amount or 11 million gallons.

Number and Volume of oil spills in California Down but Bay Remains AtRisk, Nevertheless, no data on oil spills in the bay are available.
Number and Volume of Oil Spills in California Down but Bay Remains At Risk
More than a thousand tankers pass under the Golden Gate Bridge each year, along with countless container ships, recreational boats, and other vessels. Numerous oil refineries, tanks, and pipelines also line the bay. Each of these could cause an oil spill. Oil is extremely toxic to marine life even at very low concentrations. On top of this, the bay's coastal wetlands are particularly vulnerable to spills. Nevertheless, no data on oil spills in the bay are available. But data for California as a whole show that the number of spills has fluctuated since 1990. The volume of oil spilled dropped sharply in 1991, but has been fluctuating since. Findings
Unable to find annual oil-spill data specific to San Francisco Bay, NRDC researchers examined the number and severity of oil spills in California between 1990 and 1999, as reported by the U.S. Coast Guard. Since the passage in 1990 of the federal Oil Pollution Act and California's Spill Prevention and Response Act, there has been a modest drop in the number of spills 651 in 1999 compared with 688 in 1990 although the number of spills varied from year to year. Far more dramatic was the change in the volume of oil spilled: From 1990 to 1991, it dropped sharply, from 434,993 gallons to 56,531 gallons. Since 1991, the volume has fluctuated. In 1999, 77,139 gallons were spilled. Given the lack of specific information about spills in San Francisco Bay, it is difficult to draw conclusions from these statistics about oil's effects on, and dangers to, the region.

Oil Spills:
Preventing Another Exxon Valdez Disaster
In the wake of the disaster, Congress enacted the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA) designed to prevent another such ecological catastrophe in US waters. Congress mandated that the Coast Guard enforce new standards for the transportation of oil, including the requirement of a double-tug escort in sensitive waterways and the installation of leak detection devices on all oil tankers. OPA gave the Coast Guard one year to complete this assignment. Yet to date, the Coast Guard has failed to fully implement the law.
Bluewater Network continues the effort to force the Coast Guard to fully implement OPA, as well as to develop other technological and operational requirements to reduce the likelihood of oil spills in our sensitive marine habitats. back to top
