In the early summer of 2005, we in the oil industry believed we were prepared for just about every weather eventuality that could strike the Gulf of Mexico. On August 29, 2005, Mother Nature - in the form of Hurricane Katrina - taught us that we were not as prepared as we had believed. One month later, Hurricane Rita reinforced that lesson with the lowest pressure and highest wind measurements ever recorded for a hurricane in the Gulf. Have we fully recovered from that record-breaking hurricane season, and what lessons have we learned now that we are nearly two years removed from those two disasters? Is it possible to ever fully prepare for the type of force that Mother Nature can throw against us?
