MMS cancels SAFE Awards Luncheon

Posted on 28 April 2010

The Department of the Interior’s Minerals Management Service (MMS) announced on 26 April that the 2010 Annual Industry SAFE Awards Luncheon scheduled for 3 May 2010 at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston, Texas has been cancelled.

The ongoing situation with the Transocean Deepwater Horizon drilling accident has caused the MMS to dedicate considerable resources to the successful resolution of this event which will conflict with holding this ceremony next week.  The MMS will announce an alternative plan during the next several weeks.

The MMS apologizes for any inconvenience and thanks the organizers of OTC for their understanding of our current situation.

Email OTC to request a refund for your MMS SAFE Awards Luncheon ticket or to exchange your ticket for another OTC luncheon.

You may also request a refund or exchange your ticket (based on availability) on-site during OTC by visiting the designated “MMS Luncheon” counter at the entrance of Hall D in Reliant Center or at any of the on-site registration counters in either Reliant Arena or Reliant Center.
