EMSA Issues Call for Tenders for Oil Spill Recovery Vessels

The call for tenders for stand-by oil spill recovery vessels in the Northern Baltic Sea will be in effect until April 19, 2017.

The European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) Wednesday issued a call for tenders for stand-by oil spill recovery vessels in the Northern Baltic Sea.

"The contracted vessels would undertake normal commercial activities and, at request, be transformed and mobilised at short notice for at-sea oil recovery services during a (major) oil spill," explains EMSA.

As the EMSA provides additional response capacity to EU Members States' pollution response mechanisms, contractual arrangements with private or public companies and consortia can be utilised from any relevant industry, including shipowners and operators and the spill response service providers.

EMSA's call for tenders will be in effect until April 19, 2017.

With U.S. crude falling into bear territory on Tuesday, analysts are now openly expecting the next stop is a return to $30 per barrel - with nothing on the horizon apart from a vague hope of a U.S. shale slowdown to suggest a price recovery is imminent.
