    Oil spillage is a controversial aspect of oil exploration and it occurs during crude oil exploration, oil pipeline leakage, vandalization, illegal tampering of oil-well heads, transfer of oil into vessels, and during the transport of oil in tankers. Oil spills are taken seriously by the oil industry at both upstream and downstream sites. The Montara oil spill was the worst oil spill in the history of the Australian offshore petroleum industry.1 The spill commenced on 21 August , when the Montara wellhead, operated by oil company PTTEP Australasia, began spewing oil into Australian waters in the Timor Sea. Oil flowed unabated for 74 days until 3 November

    The November Conference is a seminar hosted by Team Norway in close collaboration between Norway and Brazil within research, development and innovation in the oil and gas industry.

Hazards related to offshore oil and gas operations As it has been dramatically demonstrated not only in the Macondo accident but in a variety of cases, offshore oil rigs activities entail the hazard of a major accident with potentially severe. The British Petroleum (BP) oil spill is now as infamous as it is famous.

At the time of the deep water oil rig explosion that killed eleven BP employees, media and environmentalists were calling the resulting oil spill "the greatest ecological disaster ever produced by the oil industry" (Balaguer,p. 6).
