ABSTRACT
The article reports on the efforts of MMS Petroleum PLC in addressing and implementing any necessary modifications to standards in place for structural and operations of offshore infrastructure in the Gulf of Mexico. The company allocated over 600,000 dollars worth of contracts to study the impact of hurricanes on oil and gas production facilities. These studies will address short- and long-term adjustments in the company's technical, engineering, and geological standards as well as regulations to ensure that offshore oil and gas production remains safe, environmentally friendly and less susceptible to interruption.
