With an eye to future resource extraction in Alaskan waters, Clay Maitland, Founding Chairman of the North American Marine Environment Protection Association (NAMEPA), has announced the program for its Environmental Intelligence in Maritime Senior Leadership Roundtable.

The Leadership Roundtable will be held in Anchorage, Alaska on August 8th, 2013, at the Captain Cook Hotel.  The caucus will begin at 1:30PM with a keynote delivered by Congressman Don Young and will focus on “Drilling Preparedness in the Arctic”.

Recent attempts to proceed with drilling in the Arctic have been met with challenges.  Federal agencies, as well as private industry, have been working to better understand and meet these challenges.  Giving updates on Coast Guard expectations will be RADM Tom Ostebo, followed by the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement’s RADM James Watson.  Other scheduled participants include Kevin Robison of Helix, Todd Paxton of CISPRI, Doug Martin of SMIT and Fred Esposito of AVTEC.  Alaskan Senator Lesil McGuire will deliver closing remarks on what the public expects.
