Description

The recent evolution of sub-sea dispersant injection (SSDI) as a response tool for possible deeper water well releases is described. This includes the operational capabilities that have been developed and how the decision to plan for SSDI may be justified by NEBA approaches.

Particular features are described including the ability to mount continuous operations in a wide range of sea conditions, as well as approaches to monitoring the effectiveness and effects of its application.
