Last year’s event attracted over 460 industry professionals and over
90 students from across the spectrum of technical disciplines that enable Deepwater oil
and gas development. These attendees are a mixture of staff from oil & gas companies,
service companies and students from universities across the gulf coast. More information

2012 R3 - Renewal – Responsibility – Research”. The overall goal of the symposium
is to share knowledge, best practices, new technologies, and improvements to existing
technologies with a focus on case studies.
Luncheons will feature keynote speakers and the Symposium ends with a panel
discussion currently targeted on the Deepwater permit process. A dedicated exhibit
hall with contractor presentations will be available for participants. Last year over
30 companies exhibited Deepwater technology at the symposium. There will also be
Student Poster/Paper sessions.
Abstract deadline (PAST): Friday, April 27, 2012.
