    Is it necessary for an oil barge to have double hull?

    It depends on where the barge is operating and what type of products it is carrying. You'll have to check IMO/SOLAS regulations, MARPOL, and any local laws/regulations where the barge is flagged or operates.

    You can start with MARPOL.

    There may be relevant sections in SOLAS, but I can't recommend anything specific because all you have disclosed is you have a barge which carries diesel oil.

    Where does this barge operate?
    How big is it?
    Is it manned?
    How much cargo does it carry?
    Etc.
    Etc.
