Oil & Gas 101: Offshore
The Westin Nova Scotian, Harbour Suites
Feb 19, 2013

This full day event will explain the basics of offshore oil and gas from exploration and development, to the specifics of drilling a well, to the culture of safety within the industry. Delegates may include employees of our regional governments, businesses who supply or plan to supply the industry as well as logistics, communications and business development professionals. Participants do not need to have a technical background, but rather the course is intended as an opportunity to develop a basic understanding of the industry.
