Full-scale field testing of thin oil films from releases of light crude oil at sea NOFO Oil-on-Water field trial in 2016
MetadataShow full item record
During the 2016 NOFO Oil-on-Water (OOW) field trial at the Frigg field in June 2016, a series of 3 experimental releases with a light crude oil (Åsgard Blend) were conducted. This report summarizes the results of the fate and behaviour of the oil in these experiments and the potential of different methods of oil spill response for reducing the risk for environmental damage of oil films generated in cairn sea conditions. The response methods included low dosage dispersant treatment and mechanical dispersion using the Fi-Fi monitors and high-capacity water flush bow boom.
