Introduction. The risk of accidental oil spillages has increased in domestic and international waters in recent years [1,2,3,4,5].For example, one of the worst accidents, the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, was the costliest in history to the world oil industry [1,3,4].The statistics of the International Tanker Owners Pollution Federation (ITOPF) [] show that a total of oil spillages Cited by: 6.
