The Regional Clean Sea Organisation (RECSO), is an oil industry co-operative organisation functioning on the concept of "mutual aid". RECSO is a Non-Proﬁt Environmental Organization with genuine objective to accomplish a “Cleaner and Safer Environment”. RECSO was ofﬁcially set up in 1972 by 13 founder members.
The oil companies in the region at that time recognized a need for collective response to major oil pollution incidents and thus came together to achieve a common objective - protecting the Gulf's resources from oil pollution.

- To be the Region’s Reference Authority and consultative body for matters related to sharing best practices and knowledge on offshore oil spills prevention and response
