OIL SPILL POLLUTION CLEANUP SHIPS - SEAVAX™
A HIGH PRICE TO PAY - As cars are introduced that use less diesel and petrol, the demand for oil will fall. Shipping in now switching to LNG for cargo and cruise, and that too diminishes the demand for oil. Houses are being built that are more fuel efficient, in some cases totally energy self-sufficient, and that means lowered income for energy companies. Previously, with £millions sloshing around to give high dividends to shareholders, oil companies will have to scale back - and eventually face facts - that borrowing to keep shelling out to stockholders is not sustainable. They may even face bankruptcy for such folly. Especially, if worst case scenario predictions by Goldman Sachs in September 2015 come true and a barrel of oil drops to $20.
SEAVAX OIL SPILL RECOVERY MODULE
SeaVax can be equipped with an oil spill recovery module as an accessory item, or indeed as the main function. The dual purpose variant will be able to switch from plastic recovery to fluid oil recovery, although some of you may agree that plastic is oil in another form - hence the SeaVax is really an oil recovery ship.
This may be a cost effective way of introducing SeaVax, where BP was caught on the hop with Deepwater Horizon and there are oil spills all over the world attracting huge fines. Fines might be reduced in accordance with the emergency recovery measure of an oil producer. All the while there is no oil spill to rush to stem, SeaVaX may continue plastic recovery duties, and that environmentally responsible attitude might also be taken into consideration when levying fines.
A major oil spillage is a rarity, whereas relatively minor spills happen every year somewhere around the globe. It is par for the course in the oil producing world. Why not then take precautions and at the same time claw back some of the solid oil - in the form of plastic - which should also be considered by the courts when calculating fines.
We need oil to work our way up to a global Circular Economy. Oil giants are seen as monsters creating havoc around the world every time an oil tanker grounds, whereas by installing recovery facilities as part of the oil extraction process, that image may be dispelled. The point here is that as with Deepwater Horizon, oil companies are typically caught on the hop - without a rescue plan - when of course they could have had that in mind from the beginning.
INNOVATION 2015 - The full size SeaVax will be capable of extracting plastic or oil from the ocean. Routine plastic patrols may be interrupted, where a fleet of these ships could be diverted to deal with oil spills. So far there has been only one enquiry on that score for the Gulf of Guinea. We hope to interest some of the energy giants as potential partners to the SeaVax project. The above boat will be on display in London between the 9-10th of November 2015 at the Old Billingsgate exhibition halls.
REVOLVING SHOW STAND - This is a picture of the display on November 10th 2015 at the Innovate 2015 event. You can see a video of this revolving on our Homepage. The solar wings and wind turbines are fitted and a UAV drone is seen on the helipad at the rear end of the boat.
One of the central goals of the Oil Spill India (OSI) Conference is to partake at this critical juncture in bringing a promising future for the global oil spill industry & its stakeholders. Since its inception in 2011, OSI has continually evolved & OSI 2016 will be no exception in meeting the changing needs and interests of the community that it serves. Themed “Commitment, Synergy, Excellence” OSI 2016 will continue its tradition of providing a forum on stakeholders commitment for Environmental Sustainability, Oil Spill Preparedness & Prevention, the need for Synergy in Oil Spill Response & Excellence in Restoration efforts.

THE GUARDIAN 25 OCTOBER 2015 - OIL COMPANY PROFITS FALLING
BP and Shell are set to unveil a drop of more than half in their third-quarter profits this week, raising new questions about their ability to retain dividends and avoid further job losses.
Interspill 2018, the European oil spill conference and exhibition, is to be held at ExCel, London alongside Oceanology International.
Following on the heels of the successful event in Amsterdam, the next Interspill will be held on 13 – 15th March, 2018 at the ExCel London Exhibition and Convention centre in the heart of London's Docklands.
In confirming the venue and date, outgoing Interspill Steering Committee Chairman Rob Cox said that: “the committee have decided to continue with a successful formula, and will again hold Interspill in London, working with our partner Reed Exhibitions. As in 2012, the 2018 event will be co-located with Oceanology International.”
The continuing success of Interspill, with over 1,250 delegates, visitors and exhibitors from 75 countries attending Interspill 2015 at RAI Amsterdam in March this year made it the most successful event in the Interspill series to date: during the 3 days of the conference, over 80 technical papers covered a range of topics including Emerging Technologies, Sensing and Surveillance and Future Risks.
The Exhibition was over 20% larger than in 2012 giving over one hundred companies the opportunity to showcase the latest technologies, services and solutions in oil spill prevention and response. As in 2012 there was a full programme of Science Workshops and Spill Industry Seminars held on the Exhibition floor, which contributed significantly to the success of the event.
The scope of the event reflects the strength and breadth of the organising Committees, which included the European Spill industry trade organisations, the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA), IPIECA, the global oil and gas industry association for environmental and social issues and Oil Spill Response Ltd., with support from the International Maritime Organization (IMO), International Oil Pollution Convention Funds (IOPC Funds), the International Tanker Owners Federation (ITOPF) and France’s Centre of Documentation, Research and Experimentation on Accidental Water Pollution (CEDRE).
Proceedings of the 2015 Conference, Workshops and Seminars have been published on the Interspill Ltd. website www.interspill.org
Interspill is controlled by the European Spill industry associations, from Norway, NOSCA, from France, SYCOPOL, and from UK, the UK Spill Association, together with EMSA, IPIECA and Oil Spill Response Ltd and is co-organised by Reed Exhibitions.
Interspill is owned and organised by a tripartite group, combining the European Oil Spill Industry, with the International Petroleum Industry Environmental Conservation Association, (IPIECA), representing the environmental and conservation interests of the international petroleum industry, and the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA), recognising its tasks concerning marine pollution preparedness and response in Europe.
The Interspill Conference and Exhibition is now on its 7th edition, and is part of a Triennial series of global Oil Spill events, in conjunction with IOSC in the United States, and Spillcon in Australia.
The Australian Maritime Safety Authority and the Australian Institute of Petroleum invite you to attend the international oil spill conference for the
Asia Pacific region, Spillcon 2016.
Spillcon 2016 will include an exhibition, providing organisations with an excellent opportunity to showcase equipment and services to conference attendees who:
EMEX is the energy management show that connects all energy users with leading experts, policy makers, suppliers and technical solutions. This marketplace includes a free to attend conference programme that will help you control energy costs, gain industry insights, source innovations, share knowledge and stay up to date with the latest and upcoming legislative changes and how these are affecting businesses in the UK.

SEAVAX OIL RECOVERY DRONES - The above diagram shows you a plan view of a bulk carrier (drawn to scale) with ten x 44 meter SeaVax ships docked with the 50,000 DWT bulk carrier. In the event of an oil spill, a fleet of SeaVax could be diverted to operate with a PlastiMax to act as a small oil tanker collection vessel, while the SeaVax drones get to work collecting the hazardous waste and transferring it as quickly as possible from the sea to help local ecology to bounce back in a shorter timeframe.
