Charlie Williams, one of 8 chief scientists at Shell Oil, discussed the tremendous gains made over the last 30 years in oil and gas production. Charlie was the chief scientist who helped Shell recover production in the Gulf of Mexico after Hurricane Katrina. Charlie said that even though a major platform was knocked over during the hurricane there were no significant spills in the Gulf.

It was quite an honor interviewing Charlie Williams who is one of the most respected scientists in the industry and one of only 8 chief scientists at Shell Oil. At the Offshore Technology Conference Charlie took a few minutes to boast about Shell Oil’s 30 year environmental record:
