An OceanPact team took part in Clean Gulf Conference & Exhibition in the United States between November 16 and 18. As well as being one of the sponsors of the event’s 30th edition, held in-person at Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas, the company had the opportunity to receive important customers at his booth during the exhibition, which involved more than 100 exhibitors from many countries. The conference featured 20 seminars, two workshops and a series of moments for sharing knowledge and networking.
OceanPact’s commercial and new business director, Érik Cunha, and a group of professionals from the company took part in the event 20 months after the COVID-19 pandemic began. The booth presented the company’s main services and innovations, showing the public new technologies that have contributed to advances in areas related to the environmental safety of oceans and offshore operations in accident prevention, preparation and response.
Considered one of the leading conferences in the sector, Clean Gulf brought together more than 1,000 professionals who work on environmental emergencies in a forum dedicated to presenting new technologies, case studies and lessons learned from accidents. The conference and trade show have enabled the formation of a network for sharing best practices, strategies, solutions and new trends to improve services to prepare for and tackle future offshore environmental incidents.
This year, Clean Gulf showcased virtual emergency operations centers and the stabilization of companies during disasters to support the continuity of their business. The conference brought together representatives from the oil and gas, maritime, rail and environmental sectors, as well as regulatory agencies, oil spill response organizations and companies providing environmental services.
Other items discussed during Clean Gulf were systems for detecting chemical agents, solutions for environmental compliance, containment and safety equipment, risk analysis, disaster communication, the use of drones and new surveillance technologies. Some topics discussed were directly related to the impacts caused by the pandemic, such as the development of online training and exercises to prevent and combat offshore accidents.
