Oil spill risk assessment

The Oil Spill Risk Assessment for Coastal Waters of Queensland and Great Barrier Reef Marine Park report is the culmination of a 12-month study conducted by the Department of Transport and Main Roads (then Queensland Transport) and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority.

The report examines the risk profile for Queensland coastal waters, and the Great Barrier Reef marine park, for serious marine oil spills from shipping.

This assessment updates Queensland's strategy for protection of our pristine coastal waters, and ensures the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef Marine Park is governed by best practices.
