The Marine Well Containment Co. (MWCC), which was established in the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon disaster, has designed a comprehensive emergency response program to contain compromised deepwater wells in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM). In an exclusive interview with E&P Plus, MWCC CEO David Nickerson discussed how the company remained continuously ready to respond to a deepwater well control incident in the GoM amid a global pandemic and higher than average tropical storm activity.

E&P Plus: In what way have the pandemic-induced challenges affected MWCC, and how have you managed them?

Nickerson: It has been a pretty rough 2020 for sure. And like many others, we found ourselves having to deal with the pandemic and the tropical storm activity in parallel.
