Never before 2020 had companies engaged in offshore Gulf of Mexico exploration and production seriously considered being unable or unwilling to flow crude barrels due to disappearing transportation capacity or crashing prices.  The COVID lockdown crippled global demand while near term supplies remained uninterrupted and the threat of additional barrels being introduced into the Gulf loomed over the horizon.  This webinar will look at what happens when the market disappears and offers practical solutions on steps to take now to be prepared in the future, including a new Flow Assurance Agreement Exhibit being considered for the AAPL Model Form of Offshore Deepwater Operating Agreement.
