Briefing: Greenpeace analysis of the Cairn Oil Spill Prevention and Contingency Plan

Last edited 31 August 2011 at 8:26am

For the two years that Cairn has been operating in the Arctic, it has repeatedly refused to publish an oil spill response plan - the document that supposedly shows how the company would deal with a spill. Recently, after massive public and political pressure, the Greenland government - not Cairn - finally buckled and published the oil spill response plan.

This is a summary and analysis of Cairn's oil spill plan from independent expert Rick Steiner and Greenpeace Arctic campaigners.
