Discussions included various response strategies and policies and the Manual and Tool to Evaluate Oil Spill Management Capabilities developed by ARPEL, a non-profit association of oil, gas, and renewable energy sector companies and institutions in Latin America and the Caribbean (RETOS). RPS provided a detailed presentation and demonstration of the oil spill modeling capabilities of its OILMAP, oil fate and trajectory model, and how it can be used for regional geographic response plans for the various national stakeholders of the Dominican Republic, including the Ministry of Environment (Ministerio de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales) the Navy of the Dominican Republic (Armada de la República Dominicana), and the Center of Emergency Operations (Centro de Operaciones de Emergencia).
RPS provides many services to support both government and private industry clients in incident response and planning. We can provide capability assessments, response plan development, response exercise design, evaluation, and coaching, and training, including Incident Command System (ICS) and IMO model courses on Oil Pollution Preparedness, Response and Co-operation. RPS is uniquely capable to assist clients with their response efforts by using our proprietary, world-renowned oil spill model to predict oil movement and develop a response plan based on these predictions. The model can test actual response strategies, such as mechanical recovery, surface and subsea dispersant application, and in situ burning, and evaluate their effectiveness.
