ST Conference Preview


Owners, operators and responders involved in the oil and gas industry will meet from November 13 to 15 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, for the CLEAN GULF Conference & Exhibition. Professionals and decision makers from the U.S. Gulf Coast and beyond will come together to view the latest products, services and technologies, and to hear about the latest trends and developments in oil spill prevention and response.

This year's conference will have an expanded educational program, which now includes two events running concurrently with CLEAN GULF: the Deepwater Prevention and Response Conference and the Industrial Fire, Safety and Security Conference and Exhibition. Registration for CLEAN GULF includes access to both of these events.

In addition, two other industry events will colocate their exhibit floor with CLEAN GULF: the Shale EnviroSafe Conference & Exhibition and the ChemInnovations Conference & Exhibition.

This year's show has the largest exhibition floor to date, and Laura Couvillon, show director for CLEAN GULF 2012, said advanced registration has been running strong.

Show Program
The conference begins with a 45-minute keynote address on November 14 from James Watson, director of the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement.

This will be followed by the two-hour session that will touch on transboundary challenges in deepwater safety. This session, 'Is There Really 'One Gulf of Mexico'? Transboundary Challenges in Deepwater Safety,' will feature speakers such as Lee Hunt, the president emeritus of the International Association of Drilling Contractors; Michael R. Bromwich, former director of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement; and representatives from the U.S. Coast Guard, the Environmental Defense Fund and the Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies at Texas A&M University'Corpus Christi.

On November 15, the day starts with a one-and-a-half-hour general session, 'State and Federal Updates.' Federal and state regulators responsible for implementation and enforcement in the Gulf of Mexico will inform attendees on what they need to know to conduct business there. Speaking at this session will be officials from the Louisiana Oil Spill Coordinator's Office, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, the Alabama Department of Environmental Management, the Texas General Land Office, the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality, the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, the U.S. Coast Guard and EPA.

Colocated Conferences
The Industrial Fire, Safety and Security Conference and Exhibition, colocated with CLEAN GULF, will bring together more than 500 industrial emergency responders to receive hands-on training, share best practices and see the latest industrial emergency response solutions on the exhibit floor.

The Deepwater Prevention and Response Conference, also colocated with CLEAN GULF, will bring together drillers, subsea operators, pipeline workers, shipping companies and other service providers in the petroleum supply chain.

Following the general sessions each day, attendees can choose from five dedicated conference tracks: response; planning and preparedness; regulatory and policy updates; deepwater prevention and preparedness; and lessons learned and the way ahead.

Both conferences and their sessions are included as part of CLEAN GULF registration.

Oil Spill Expo
The CLEAN GULF exhibit hall will feature leading oil spill response organizations, regulatory agencies and service companies showcasing new technology. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with exhibitors.
