The program for the International Regulators’ Offshore Safety Conference has now been updated to include keynote presentations on the West Atlas/Montara (Australia) and Deepwater Horizon/Macondo (USA Gulf of Mexico).

A roundtable session will address the lessons learned and how they should be applied by operators, contractors, and regulators. The presentations, discussions, and debates are sure to be thought provoking and informative.
