About this Podcast...

Jan Burgess, Health & Safety Partner at Cameron McKenna, offers Oil & Gas IQ a legal standpoint on health, safety and regulation requirements for drilling and well operators in the wake of the Macondo incident.

Macondo underlined the serious systemic flaws that drove a "perfect storm" of errors to culminate in 11 fatalities and widespread environmental catastrophe.

In the course of this podcast, Jan covers:

  • · The lack of specificity with regards to HPHT well legislation
  • · How Macondo was an "amalgam disaster", combining both a tragic loss of life with the consequences of an environmental debacle
  • · The formation of the Oil Spill Prevention and Response Advisory Group (OSPRAG) and what effect this will have on the future of deep water drilling
  • · Can and will any resolutions made in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon explosion be rolled out internationally?
  • · How good health and safety practices can also entrain the minimisation of risk to the environment
