The concept of oil spill response capability has been used in order to secure the most suitable equipment as national policy on oil spill accidents at sea. Due to the difficulty to calculate the capability of equipment and facility for oil spill response, every country has own method to quantify them on the base of skimmer’s volume The target capability is set quantitatively by a mount of spilled oil which the skimmer can collect. The way in which Korea and Japan adopt for the capability to withdraw spilled oil, depend on only the pump’s capacity of skimmer. It has its limits to provide the optimal scale of response equipment to oil spill spot and the problem to cooperate with several nations because they have their own way to calculate equipment.
In this study, the characteristics of the way each country choose are compared and analyzed for designing the new method to supplement the existing way. This paper propose a noble way with unique paradigm, which is designed based on spill area.
The study is composed with five chapters. In the first chapter, the backgrouund and objectives for the study have been defined and the method and scope of it have also been explained.
In the second chapter, the ability for capacity base prevention evaluation method has been analyzed that managed conventionally in each country and considered a mark.
In the third chapter, the concrete prevention base evaluation method has been designed.
In the forth chapter, the designed area base evaluation method has been compared with the past accident example. And the usefulness of the area base evaluation method has been derived.
Finally, In the fifth chapter, the study concluded with summary of all the previous chapters and several suggestions.
