The objective of the project is to analyse both Russian crude and bunker oils. Analyses of chemical and physical properties and weathering of the oil will be performed. The results will increase the knowledge of how these oils will change after a spill as well as to determine how effective dispersants are when used in the response of an oil spill. Guidelines for use of dispersants in case of an oil spill of Russian oil in the Baltic Sea Region will be established. Operational use of the results of the analyses is of great importance to organisations responsible for response to oil spill.
