Posted on 05 August 2010

The new Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement announced on 3 August that its first two fact-finding forums will convene on 10 August and 11 August in Mobile, Ala, and Pensacola, Fla, respectively.

According to BOEM, the forums aim at collecting “information and views about deepwater drilling safety reforms, well containment, and oil spill response, which Director Bromwich will consider in evaluating whether to recommend any modifications to the scope or duration of the deepwater drilling suspensions announced by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar on July 12, 2010.”

Panels comprising representatives from academia, the “environmental community, and the oil and gas industry will brief BOEM Directory Michael R Bromwich on technical issues related to deepwater drilling and workplace safety, well containment, and oil spill response. The forums also will provide an opportunity for input from federal, state and local leaders on these same issues.

The forums will be open to the public. Doors open at 8 am, and the events begin at 9 am.

Specific information:

  • Mobile: Renaissance Mobile Hotel, North Royal Street;
  • Pensacola: New World Landing, 600 S. Palafox St.

BOEM plans additional forums during August in Santa Barbara, Calif., and Anchorage, Alaska.  In September, events will convene in Biloxi, Miss., Houston and Lafayette, La.
