Industry, Government, National, International Authorities and Academia strive for excellence and continual improvement in spill preparedness and response in the context of unstable oil prices and evolving energy mix with many emergent fuel technologies as regulators and manufacturers drive to reduce emissions. 

Vessels are increasing in size and becoming more automated in operation; the oceans are increasingly busy, but their health is declining and pollutants including debris and plastic threaten the diversity within and on which we rely. Oil production is increasingly focused on mature basins, often with ageing infrastructure which poses an oi spill risk, meanwhile corporate rationalisation has recently seen a lot of internal oil spill resource and corporate knowledge retire from corporations.

Against this backdrop, the Conference at Interspill 2022 will be a face-to-face forum to discuss these issues and showcase innovative solutions which will improve global readiness and demonstrate why spill preparedness remains highly relevant and adds true value to all who invest in it and use the oceans for commerce. 

The conference will hear papers delivered by academics, industry practitioners, manufacturers and innovators along the following streams:


Sub Sea


Shipping Risks

Inland Risks

Plastic pollution and Marine Litter

Non-Hydrocarbon incidents

Crisis and Incident Management

Outreach and Engagement

Surveillance, Modelling and Visualisation


The Conference will have three streams on each day.


Technical tracks

The Technical Tracks will cover topics ranging from Effective Preparedness to Inland Spill Risks. Check out the full programme for who will be speaking.


Science workshops

Organised by Cedre and ITOPF, these 1-hour workshops are focused on the latest scientific and industry developments.


Industry seminars

Organised by the Industry Trade Association will be a series of presentations highlighting the latest industry developments and technology.

Short Courses

Short courses

Held the day before Interspill and aimed at young professionals and those new to the spill preparedness and response community.

Poster Presentations

Poster presentations

The Poster Exhibition will take place on the show floor across all three days of the event and cover a variety of topics relating to oil spill preparedness, technology for response and response.

Network Reception

Network reception

There are a number of opportunities to make new contacts at the show including the interactive conference programme, exhibitors’ own events and the official Networking Reception. Taking place at the end of Day 1, the Networking Reception is your opportunity to network with your peers and fellow industry professionals in a relaxed environment. There will be a second reception on Day 2 at the close of the days events.
