Abstract: Present study consists three- dimensional numerical model of the prediction of the movement of oil slicks and diffusion oil particles in the water column.  Model has previously been developed in the Assalouyeh Marine Region in the north coast of Persian Gulf, Iran and has been achieved good results. This model has been run for oil spill accident between Khark Island and Busher Port in winter (2005).  Model predicts concentration distribution of oil particles and current speeds and directions for 1.7, 7 and 14 hours after spill accident in the water column in 5,10 and 15 meters levels. Numerical results show that oil particles spread towards Khark Island and away from Busher Port in winter. Diffusion oil particles in the water column due to more turbulence are larger.  Spreading follow the flow fields that are in good agreement with flow field observations and valid theories and experiment of data runs.
