Description

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?

If you have special food requirements due to allergies, please contact Nancy Hart prior to the luncheon  to arrange for a special plate.   We are unable to do this on the day of the event.

TETRA Technologies, Inc.

At press time, our speaker is a toss-up between Neil Crawford and Dane Broussard from TETRA Technologies, Inc. (They are both key Managers of the division of TETRA that responds to emergencies and are arm wrestling for the opportunity to speak to us.)  TETRA has been instrumental not only in the clean-up after the hurricanes but also in the Offshore De-commissioning of the petroleum industry for many years.  They have a tremendous depth and breadth of experience in this field, and will share with us the successes of their efforts to date and the ongoing needs as we continue to try to return to "Business as Usual" in the Gulf of Mexico. 
 
(Rumor has it that a couple of the DIVERS who work with the decommissioning will be on hand to share some of their experiences and answer your questions.  You won''t want to miss this final luncheon of the year!!!!)
