15-16 Aug 2013
Sheraton Anchorage - Anchorage, AK, United States of America

Why You Should Attend

Arctic Drilling Safety Preparedness and Response

The harsh and unpredictable climate of the Arctic territories has done little to deter the interest in oil and gas exploration. Particularly since it has been reported, “the U.S. Geological Survey estimates 26.6 billion barrels of recoverable oil and 130 trillion cubic feet of natural gas exist below Arctic waters.” While the risks are considerable, so is the reward. As a result, there has been a great surge in development plans and permit requests.

However, in order to responsibly drill and extract these resources, oil and gas companies must have thorough safety plans in place, while fostering an environmentally conscious approach to operations. This premier marcus evans conference will carefully examine how to assess risks, develop thorough safety plans and culture, quell environmental opposition through accountable actions, prepare a successful response plan and overcome lack of logistical support.
