The second annual CGA Roundtable will see four groups come together to discuss the most pressing issues workers are facing in the industry. Each roundtable will include operators and vendors, very experienced workers and those newer to the industry. From the roundtables, a set of summary points will then be presented to the broader set of conference participants. As suggested at last year’s event, we have moved these sessions to the first day of the program to enable the conversations to continue throughout the Operations, Engineering & Integrity Conference.

The four groups will meet separately and delve deeper into their respective themes with the goals of sharing information and identifying areas of potential further exploration. Output from these sessions may feed back into CGA committee/task force activities.
