    Geologic Hazards Associated with Exploration in Deep Water and Around Salt Structures in the Gulf of Mexico
    With the recent leasing activity in the deep water offshore Mexico, it is expected that prospects will be generated in areas where massive oil slicks and sea bottom oil seeps have been detected. The presence of these hydrocarbons at the sea floor and in the water column of the Gulf of Mexico testify that leakage features are occurring at the sea floor, and that hydrocarbons have moved through the sea floor surface and to the open ocean.
  • Technical

    Increasing Employee Engagement & Empowerment Utilizing a Recurrent Risk Assessment Approach
    ​Most organizations have a variety of tools in place to identify hazards, yet the quality and effectiveness of these tools is often lacking. Inadequate hazard identification often leads to incidents because organizations have not invested the time and effort to develop a robust hazard identification and control process. This session will focus on the synergies created by incorporating existing hazard identification tools (Job Safety Analysis, Behavior-Based Observations, Incident Investigations, Management of Change) into a continual risk assessment methodology that ultimately gets more people involved in the HSE process while promoting use of Stop Work Authority.
