WASHINGTON, DC, Mar. 7 -- The US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation, and Enforcement will hold a 1-day workshop on Mar. 25 in New Orleans to discuss standards and requirements for exploration and development plans, with an emphasis on new safety requirements which have been implemented in the last 6 months.

The workshop at BOEMRE’s Gulf of Mexico regional office will provide information on plan submissions related to E&D plans, worst case discharge calculations, the National Environmental Policy Act, oil spill response plans, and spill response and containment, BOEMRE said.

BOEMRE said the workshop will be open to gulf OCS region stakeholders. There is no registration for the meeting, but seating is limited, it said.

The workshop will be in addition to one which BOEMRE plans to hold on Mar. 15 to discuss new requirements for offshore oil and gas companies to develop and implement new safety and environmental management systems.

The Resilient Oilfield in the Internet of Things World

When Tue, Sep 22, 2015

As we hear about the hype surrounding the Internet of Things, the oil and gas industry is questioning what is different than what is already being done. What is new?  Using sensors and connecting devices is nothing new to our mode of business and in many ways the industry exemplifies many principles of an industrial internet of things. How does the Internet of Things impact the oil and gas industry?

Prolific instrumentation and automation digitized the industry and has changed the approach to business models calling for a systems led approach.  Resilient Systems have the ability to adapt to changing circumstances while maintaining their central purpose.  A resilient system, such as Maximo, allows an asset intensive organization to leverage connected devices by merging real-time asset information with other critical asset information and using that information to create a more agile organization.  

Join this webcast, sponsored by IBM, to learn how about Internet of Things capabilities and resilient systems are impacting the landscape of the oil and gas industry.
