IPIECA will be attending the largest oil spill conference of the year: the 2017 International Oil Spill Conference and Exhibition. The event which will take place from 15-18 May, will see nearly 2,000 delegates converge at the Long Beach Convention Centre near Los Angeles in California to network, present, and exhibit on preparing for and responding to oil spills.
The International Oil Spill Conference (IOSC) provides a key forum for professionals from the international response community, private sector, government, and non-governmental organizations to convene on one of the greatest challenges facing the oil and gas industry. This conference is an ideal environment for government agencies, contractors, researchers, industry, and other stakeholders to work together toward mutual objectives, through the exchange of ideas and lessons learned from actual spill responses and research around the world.
Founding member IPIECA is a sponsor of this year’s IOSC and will host the opening reception. IPIECA and its members have many papers in the technical programme and will be chairing a session on ‘global responses’ on the Wednesday morning. At the closing plenary on the Thursday afternoon, IPIECA along with other key global organizations - International Maritime Organization and International Tanker Owners Pollution Federation - will participate in the panel session. IPIECA will be sharing a stand with Oil Spill Response Limited, The Sea Alarm Foundation and the Global Response network. You can visit us at stand 617.
