Blowout contingency planning is an integral part of preparing for offshore drilling activities. The primary purpose of a blowout contingency plan is to minimise danger to life and protect both the environment and valuable assets by minimising response times.
During Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) 2017 in Houston, Add Energy and Trendsetter Engineering (TEI) co-hosted an open house at Trendsetter’s Global Readiness Center showcasing their collaboration on the Relief Well Injection Spool (RWIS).

The University of Western Australia chapter of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE UWA) represents students from UWA who are interested in pursuing a career in the oil and gas industry. This year, Add Energy have been selected to join the SPE UWA team as an official partner whose sole purpose will be to mentor and guide the young, multi-discipline workforce of the future.
SPE UWA members are provided with industry exposure and leadership skills that will prepare them for the transition to the work place. In support of this, Add Energy will be working closely with the chapter to encourage the development of new opportunities for students at UWA, help to foster new relationships and increase connections between the students and the oil and gas industry.
Dermot O’Keeffe, Perth-based Chief Operating Officer at Add Energy, commented: “We are honoured to be selected as an official sponsor for 2017, Add Energy, along with the SPE, share strong values surrounding diversity, community support and continuous education. As a leading energy consultancy provider; we believe that our widespread experience, global footprint and industry connections will positively impact the student cohort at UWA, and will provide students with strategic advice and exposure to the oil and gas industry.”
Over this coming year, Add Energy will also be involved in promoting leadership and diversity within the student cohort through engaging in some of the university based events, supporting committee-run community and charity events, participating in student mentoring and support programs, and giving real life accounts and advice to students at networking events.
The SPE UWA commented “Add Energy’s support in enhancing the education and awareness of students to better prepare them for the workforce will be invaluable.”
Every year the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) selects a group of experts to share their expertise with society members through visits to locations around the world.
