The Exxon Valdez oil spill was a dramatic episode that changed the operational and regulatory landscape of shipping around the world. In this webinar, we will hear from on-the-ground experts and explore what it was like to be involved in the clean-up and media maelstrom of the accident.

The webinar will feature a panel discussion with Witt O'Brien's Mike Gallagher and Navigate Response's Edward Ion. Mike Elsom of Navigate Response will moderate. During the 60 minute session, the panel will be discussing key questions like: 

  • What were the causes and contributing factors to the accident?
