ST Conference Preview


Owners, operators and responders are set to converge from November 30 to December 1 in San Antonio, Texas, for CLEAN GULF 2011. After a 20th anniversary event last year in Tampa, Florida, attracted 2,662 attendees from 46 states and 29 countries—the most in the event's history—event organizers have high expectations.

This year's event will have an expanded educational program, which now includes two co-located events running concurrently with CLEAN GULF: the Deepwater Prevention and Response conference and the INDUSTRIAL FIRE, SAFETY & SECURITY training event and exhibition. This year's show has the largest exhibition floor to date, and Laura Couvillon, show director for CLEAN GULF 2011, said advanced registration has been running strong.

Show Program
The conference begins with a 30-minute keynote address on November 30 from Jerry Patterson, commissioner of the Texas General Land Office, and RAdm. Paul Zukunft, the assistant commandant for marine safety, security and stewardship at the U.S. Coast Guard.

This will be followed by a two-hour session that will touch on important points from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and the accompanying Incident Specific Preparedness Review (ISPR) report. The session will look ahead to the future of the Gulf of Mexico with new developments and initiatives that will impact the operator and response communities. This session, 'The Gulf—Open for Business: ISPR Review and Perspectives on the New Regulatory and Operating Environment,' will feature speakers from the U.S. Coast Guard, BOEMRE, BP plc (London, England) and the drilling industry.

On December 1, the day starts with a 30-minute general session, 'State and Federal Updates.' Organizers said this session will tell attendees what they need to know to conduct business in the Gulf of Mexico, directly from the federal and state regulators responsible for implementation and enforcement. Speaking at this session will be representatives from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, the Texas General Land Office, Louisiana Oil Spill Coordinator's Office, the Alabama Department of Environmental Management, the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality, BOEMRE, the U.S. Coast Guard and the EPA.

CLEAN GULF 2011 runs from November 30 to December 1 in San Antonio, Texas, with more than 275 companies exhibiting this year.

Following the general sessions each day, attendees can choose from more than 90 speakers at 25 sessions across four topics: response, preparedness, deepwater prevention and response, and the new reality.

Oil Spill Expo
More than 275 companies are exhibiting this year, organizers said, which offers the oil spill response community a 'one-of-a-kind' solutions expo.

The INDUSTRIAL FIRE, SAFETY & SECURITY training event and exhibition, which will co-locate with CLEAN GULF, will bring together more than 1,000 decision-makers from across the industrial emergency response marketplace to hear lessons learned from true-life situations, share best practices for all types of incidents and see the latest industrial emergency response solutions on the exhibit floor. CLEAN GULF attendees can attend this event at no charge.

The Deepwater Prevention and Response conference, also co-located with CLEAN GULF, will bring together drillers, subsea operators, pipeline workers, shipping companies and other service providers in the petroleum supply chain. All of the sessions are included as part of the CLEAN GULF registration.
