Decom World has announced on February 19 that Congressman Bill Flores will address leading Well Integrity engineers from a spectrum of operators at Houston’s Well Integrity & Asset Digitalization Conference.
The Congressman, a former CEO & President of Phoenix Oil Company, is to give the key note drawing upon his previous experience in the Oil & Gas Industry and as an elected member to the US House of Representatives.
Bill Flores has previously been active in Congress on the topic of well integrity. Most notably, in 2013, he actioned bill H.R. 2728, to block the Department of the Interior from regulating hydraulic fracturing, known as “fracking,” on public lands in states that already have their own fracking regulations in place.
With well integrity failures never far away from the headlines, both onshore and offshore, the Congressman will open the discussions with an analysis of recent disasters, such as the incident in Hemphill County and the implications that such disasters have to industry and the public.
Engineers from BP, Shell, Chevron, Marathon Oil, Tullow Oil, Kosmos Energy, Baker Hughes, Schlumberger, Halliburton, Expro Group & more, as well as representatives from the Environmental Defence Fund, American Petroleum Institute will be present for the Congressman’s presentation before breaking off into working groups tackling some of the key well integrity issues facing both today’s and tomorrow’s industry.
By encompassing multinational and independent operators at this event, the Congressman and delegates will address and interact with the entire ecosystem and some of the most influential well integrity engineers working in North America and Gulf of Mexico.
