OILMAP is an oil spill response and contingency planning tool that predicts the movement of spilled oil.
OILMAP is a comprehensive 3D model that tracks various hydrocarbon components on the water surface, in the water column, and in the air. The first version of OILMAP was delivered over 20 years ago and is now used globally by major oil companies and international governments. It has been used successfully to support spill response, planning, and permitting in over 100 countries.
The OILMAP v6 model has undergone major updates to include new algorithms, integrating years of applied research and consolidating experience from real events such as the Deep Water Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The scientists and researchers at RPS ASA have incorporated lessons learned and new technologies into the latest generation of OILMAP.
