Blowouts in Shallow-Water; A Forum for Dialogue

While drilling and operating in deep water carries obvious danger and risk; shallow-water drilling and operations are not without their own dangers and risk. With shallow-water drilling conducted in closer proximity to the shoreline, reactions to leading indicators become that much more critical. The Ocean Energy Safety Institute will convene top industry, academic and research experts from various companies, universities and organizations in a Forum for Dialogue to discuss “Maintaining a High-level of Focus and Increasing the Safety Culture in the Shallow Water Operating Environment”. We will discuss whether standards and safety barrier equipment (e.g. Blowout Preventers) should be modified for shallow-water operations and Industry efforts in addressing shallow-water blowouts. Attendees will interact with presenters and panels in order to share best practices, understand areas for further efforts and develop opportunities for additional research and collaboration. Panel members and presenters will include representatives from organizations throughout Industry, Academia and the Government. Registration will include continental breakfast, lunch and refreshments throughout the day.
