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.

Oil & Gas Journal’s March 20, 2015, webcast will look at how global LNG trade will be affected over the next 12-24 months by falling crude oil prices and changing patterns and pressures of demand. Will US LNG production play a role in balancing markets? Or will it add to a growing global oversupply of LNG for markets remote from easier natural gas supply? Will new buyers with marginal credit, smaller requirements, or great need for flexibility begin to look attractive to suppliers? How will high-cost, mega-projects in Australia respond to new construction cost trends?
