March 19, 2014

Gazprom Neft has become the first Russian company to join the Arctic Oil Spill Response Technology Joint Industry Programme (JIP) run by the world’s largest oil and gas companies. The four-year JIP was launched in December 2012 to carry out research in several areas, including studying the fate of dispersed oil under ice, dispersant testing under realistic conditions as well as oil spill detection and mapping in low visibility and ice.

The joint research will contribute to industry knowledge, broadening opportunities for testing equipment, conducting large-scale industrial experiments and developing technology and techniques for preventing oil spills in Arctic conditions.
