So there are some spaces in the URL as provided by the US govt. for Shell’s OSRP for the Chukchi Sea:

Take the spaces out and you can find the 450-page pdf of the OSRP:
The OSRP sounds very familiar.
The plan, in the event of a blowout, involves trying to trigger a non-responsive blowout preventer with a remote sub. And it involves the infamous “booms” deployed by contractors. And response to any spill will involve spraying a whole lot of Corexit:
Another oil spill response option includes the use of dispersants. When these chemicals are applied, oil begins to separate in to microscopic particulates. After that, the oil is either diluted to the point that it no longer impacts the environment or digested by organisms that consume oil.
