Ahead of the conference - and the 5th anniversary of the Macondo blowout in the Gulf of Mexico - Kerr Jeferies, Senior Industry Analyst ay Upstream Intelligence, has been speaking to leading engineer, John Turley, VP Global Drilling & Completions (retired), Marathon Oil, about the unique analysis he has performed on the rig data.

John has kindly agreed to make his insights available, via an exclusive industry presentation and audio recording for this week only. Access the full story here, to find out what could have caused, or contributed to the blowout; how your own team can avoid making critical process failures; and pinpoint simple changes to ensure a safe well culture. In addition, you can hear how best to apply essential lessons to your own well campaigns and secure the safety of all future operations.

It is this kind of exclusive, in depth insight that you will get by attending the conference.

Not only will you be able to scrutinise the latest case studies from industry leaders, Shell, Hess and Equion, and attend a series of brand new intensive workshops connecting you to the specialists and fresh solutions, you will be able to critically assess the revolutionary processes managers at BP, Exxon Mobil, and Addax are using. On top of this, you’ll be able to network with leading names from across the oil industry.

The conference is well supported by some of the top operators in the Gulf of Mexico, including Marathon Oil, Total, Hess, Shell, Exxon Mobil and many others, showing the industry’s resilience, despite the depressed oil price. It also shows the necessity for more innovative solutions to secure the integrity, reliability and stability of producing assets across the Gulf of Mexico.

“Well Integrity is without doubt the one of the most important considerations for effective operations in the 21st century (since 2009 it has cost operators over $75 billion). Not only that, over half of the industry’s engineers believe current legislation fails to meet industry demands; over a quarter of oil and gas wells across the globe have, at some stage, leaked; and of the 15,500 producing, shut in and temporarily abandoned wells in the OCS of the Gulf of Mexico, over 40 per cent have sustained casing pressure on at least one casing annulus. This makes the conference extremely relevant and timely,” explains Kerr.
