NOSCA - Norwegian Oil Spill Association - Seminar 2013

NOSCA, the Norwegian oil spill association's seminar 2013





NOSCA – the Norwegian Oil Spill Control Association – was established in 1992 to satisfy a common need within the industry, the oil companies and public institutions to join forces and resources in order to improve the overall knowledge base of oil spill prevention and response. The need for a joint international promotion of the Norwegian oil spill technology and products was certainly also of importance to NOSCA’s members representing the industry.

NOSCA with its over 30 active members has achieved international respect as an active player in R&D, oil spill prevention and response.

NOSCA is one of the three founding organizations of INTERSPILL in Europe and we also support and contribute to the successes of IOSCE in the US and SPILLCON in Australia.

Register for the NOSCA Seminar 2013 which will be arranged from September 09 - 13, 2013 in Lofoten/Norway.
