Baker Institute to Host a Conference About U.S. Offshore Drilling Risks Management

 

The explosion on the Deepwater Horizon rig in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico in April 2010 led to the largest oil spill in U.S. history and threatened Gulf ecosystems, the local Gulf Coast economy and the future of U.S. offshore drilling.

As more scientific and technical information becomes available about the causes and consequences of the disaster, the need for new policies and approaches to offshore drilling has become apparent. The conference “U.S. Offshore Oil Exploration: Managing Risks to Move Forward” brings together students, scientists and industry leaders, as well as national and Gulf Coast policymakers and political leaders, to discuss the path forward toward ensuring a safe and effective U.S. offshore drilling industry. Experts will address the options for new technologies designed to prevent future oil spills and debate policies needed to create a successful regulatory framework to achieve the important goals of environmental protection, national energy security and economic prosperity on the U.S. Gulf Coast.
