The underwater tools, means, apparatus, vehicles and submarines are considered in the paper. It is stated that the majority of initial sources of petroleum pollution are underwater located. The novel concept of composing the emergency rescue complex is provided. The complex consists of best industrial technical components which could effectively solve the problem of under-water oil spillage caused by damaged oil tankers and offshore platforms.
