PRESENTATION OF RETOS IN THE INTERNATIONAL OIL SPILL CONFERENCE 2017

  • The presentation of the Oil Spill Response Planning and Readiness Assessment Manual and its assessment tool (RETOS) was part of the program of the International Oil Spill Conference 2017 held May 15-18 in Long Beach, California.

    In addition, a course on the tool was offered, which was conducted by Elliott Taylor, PhD in Oceanography; DarĂ­o Miranda, Marine Biologist and Environmental Consultant, and Miguel Moyano, Upstream Director of ARPEL.

    RETOS, developed in 2011 and updated in 2014 and 2016, has become an international reference on the subject, and is currently used by companies and governments in the five continents.

    In order to facilitate the international scope of the tool and its use in different regions of the globe, the manual and its Excel tool were translated into Portuguese and French in 2016. The French translation was funded by the International Oil Spill Conference.

    ARPEL developed the tool RETOS with the support of international experts, with the purpose of assisting governments and companies in the assessment of the level of competence in their plans and programs of oil spill response planning and readiness based on commonly used criteria considered as part of international best practices.
