With the development of the diversity of transportation modes, maritime transportation has become one of the most commonly used ways of oil transportation in the world. However, offshore oil spill accidents are also happen frequently, and it’s also one of the forms of serious marine pollution. Therefore, the marine oil spill risk assessment and accident prevention measures have gradually attracted the attention of experts in water transportation field all over the world. This paper mainly discussed the main inducement of oil spill from ships, expounds the methods of oil spill risk assessment at home and abroad, and analyzed the present key problems of oil spill risk assessment from the ship itself and human environment, and finally discussed the current countermeasures of oil spill accidents from ships in ports.
