On 18 September Richard Johnson presented a paper during the plenary session of the 3rd Oil Spill India Conference and Exhibition in Goa. The theme of the event was "Practice to Perfection". It was organised in association with the Spill Association of India (SAI) and attracted an audience of about 200 delegates. Richard's presentation: "Shipping and Pollution: Risks and Consequences in India" highlighted some of our recent spill experience in the country.
The inaugural session was attended by a number of important dignitaries and the speakers encompassed a range of local and international representatives from government, industry and the response community. Richard Johnson said of the event: "Oil Spill India 2014 was an excellent forum for bringing government and industry together to discuss the challenges India is rising to in regards the risk, preparedness and response to oil spills. I thoroughly enjoyed the exchanges and hope that I have contributed to the subject matter and development in some small way. I look forward to future involvement."
