The Environmental Impact Review Board will meet with United States Regulatory Agencies in Anchorage, Alaska on June 3 and 4, 2015. The principal objective of this meeting is to initiate, establish, and sustain an effective approach and process with United States offshore oil and gas regulatory agencies with the intent of exchanging information on each party’s thinking, experiences, and approaches for safe drilling operations while protecting the environment and responding effectively when things go wrong. This would include the lessons learned for offshore activities in the recent past, regulatory processes and tools as well as proposed changes, and other associated issues as they relate to offshore exploration in the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas.
