The inauguration of the committee is coming on the heels of a number of measures unfolded by NOSDRA to control oil spills in the region, including series of meetings with oil companies and the recent launching of the Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) mapping for use by the companies in response to spills in coastal areas.
