Crude Oil Transport Webinar Series: Oil Spill Response Exercises and Planning

July 23 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The movement of crude oil through the Great Lakes basin and other critical northern watersheds presents a complex suite of opportunities and risks for the region. In partnership with the Great Lakes Commission and International Joint Commission, a network of Sea Grant professionals from throughout the Great Lakes region have assembled to provide stakeholders with risk-related resources on economic and environmental issues associated with transportation of crude oil in the Laurentian-Great Lakes basin and to create a forum to share knowledge, concerns, challenges, and progress.

The Crude Oil Transport webinar series is meant to provide the latest research and resources to stakeholders in the region to inform decision-making around this complex issue. Anyone with a vested interest in how crude oil and associated products move throughout the region will find the content informative.

Featured speaker: Steven Keck, Chief of Contingency Planning and Force Readiness with the U.S. Coast Guard Sector Sault Ste. Marie, MI
