AMU Marine Supervisors Address Tough Issues at Marine Meetings in Houston

MarineMeetingsTopicsMore than 60 of the North and South America Business Unit’s Masters and Marine Supervisors attended one of the marine meetings held in Houston on April 21-23 and May 12-14, 2009, where participants provided invaluable feedback and asked challenging questions regarding many significant marine matters facing them and their Marine crews offshore.

“The impressive aspect of this meeting to me is the pool of experience that was amassed,” said Jim Brekke, Director, Marine Support. “What other company could pull together this many captains/marine supervisors at one time? And this was just AMU!”

Various Managers, Directors, and VPs of Performance, Asset, New Builds and Engineering also were in attendance to outline the company’s expectations of marine personnel.

Topics and discussions resulted in a list of action items that, when addressed and resolved, will help ensure Transocean remains the premier offshore drilling contractor. You can find a list of these action items and find all meeting presentations at RIGCentral>AMU>Marine.

The meeting, deemed a success by all involved, stressed the importance of communication, lateral learning and provided networking opportunities to attendees.

The AMU team reports that good progress is being made toward addressing and resolving many of the meeting’s action items with expectations of continued success throughout the year, and anticipates similar meetings in the future.

John MacDonald, AMU Marine Operations Manager, organized the meetings.
