Abstract:

The purpose of this thesis is to examine the industrial structure in oil spill clean-up activity. The study concludes that the commercial sector, the forerunner in clean-up activity, is being supplemented with private, or in-house capability as well as non-profit and public clean-up. However, each sector remains a viable part of the total clean-up effort, with each catering to different areas of demand.
