Mirfa Power and Desalination Plant is one of the main plants in Abu Dhabi Emirate. It is located at the Arabian Gulf coast. The plant is vulnerable to oil pollution because oil fields, offshore pipelines and refineries are located close to it. A risk analysis study was carried out to determine the trajectory and horizontal spread of oil slick released from different locations. The results give the potential risks of oil pollution at the seawater intake in terms of oil slick concentrations and properties. The study helps in the setup of effective oil protection measures at the plant intake channel.
