The purpose of this circumpolar Arctic response viability analysis is to better understand the potential for different oil spill response systems to operate in the Arctic marine environment. The EPPR Working Group commissioned this study of oil spill response viability for the circumpolar Arctic region, co-sponsored by Norway, the United States, and Denmark. DNV GL and Nuka Research and Planning Group, LLC conducted the study under contract to the Norwegian Coastal Administration and the U.S. Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement.
