Offshore Hurricane Response
As hurricane seasons gears up, the offshore energy industry remains steadfast in its dedication and professionalism in preparing for and responding to hurricanes. The goal during every hurricane season is the same as it is everyday: Zero Accidents and Zero Spills. Following hurricanes and other storms, companies work to return to full operations as quickly as safely possible.
In recent years, the skill and dedication of offshore employees and companies have been on full display. 2017's hurricane season was a top-10 most active season and was the most expensive hurricane season in U.S. history. Despite the ferocity of last years storms, and devastation they wrought along the Gulf Coast and in Florida, there were no reported deaths or injuries among offshore workers, no reported damage to offshore facilities and no reported spills from offshore facilities. This is a testament to how well the offshore industry prepares for and responds to hurricanes.
