Join us for an exclusive webinar explaining how the new API Standard 53, Blowout Prevention Equipment Systems for Drilling Wells, is changing how the oil and gas industry installs, inspects, maintains, tests and operates BOP equipment.

Sponsored by Cameron, this webcast is drawn from a panel discussion originally held at the 2013 IADC Well Control Conference of the Americas, held in Galveston, Texas, during August.

Frank Gallander, Chevron, who led the API 53 task force, and Cameron’s Mel Whitby, a major participant in the effort, will explain changes in the new standard and answer questions on how it will affect industry — and what will remain the same.
