Dr. Gundlach has been involved with oil spill response and spill management since 1975, providing expertise and leadership at a large number of spills and other emergency events, including participation in such well known cases as the Exxon Valdez, the Gulf War spills, Lebanese (Israel war) spill, and the Amoco Cadiz in France), Deepwater Horizon blowout (Gulf of Mexico), as well others in the United States, South America, Turkey, Nigeria, Spain, Germany and elsewhere. He has provided training courses for over 25 years to numerous clients in the oil, gas, and energy industries, as well as for the International Maritime Organization (IMO), U.S. and international Coast Guards, the World Bank, and governmental agencies in North and South America. He was a developer of the internationally applied Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) and has authored over 200 publications and technical reports on spill response management, environmental impacts, sensitivity mapping and contingency planning, and has completed response-related projects on all seven continents.
The overall objective is to provide the individual with a broad understanding of oil spills, spill response methods, and effective spill management techniques.
The course covers topics within International Maritime Organizationâ€™s (IMO) course Levels 2 and 3 (On Scene Commanders, Oil Spill Management) and UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency Levels 4 and 5 (Oil Spill Response Manager and Incident Manager).
This course is particularly designed for managers, supervisors and other individuals involved with spill response supervision and management. Participants commonly come from the oil transport, development and production, government, the mining and energy sectors as well as other companies involved in the transport or storage of petroleum. Those involved with pipelines and marine operations are particularly encouraged to attend.
