BOEMRE - NTL No. 2010-N10
• Applies only to operators conducting operations using subsea
blowout preventers (BOPs) or surface BOPs on floating facilities.
• BSEE will be evaluating whether each operator has submitted
adequate information demonstrating that it has access to and
can deploy containment resources that would be adequate to
promptly respond to a blowout or other loss of well control.
BOEMRE – NTL 2010 – N10
• BSEE evaluation includes, but is not limited to the following:
o Subsea containment and capture equipment, including
containment domes and capping stacks
o Subsea utility equipment, including hydraulic power,
hydrate control and dispersant injection equipment
o Riser systems
o Remotely operated vehicles (ROVs)
o Capture vessels
o Support vessels
o Storage facilities
• BSEE will also evaluate whether there is adequate
information identifying personnel who will be available to
respond to a blowout or other loss of well control requiring
the deployment of containment resources.
Formation of HWCG
• HWCG mission was to develop a comprehensive and rapid
deepwater containment response system to meet NTL 2010N10 regulations. Members include 15 deepwater oil & gas
companies that have access to specific equipment under
agreements with Helix Energy Solutions Group and 30+
additional identified vendors.
• Purpose was to develop an effective and timely response to a
deepwater well containment incident in the Gulf of Mexico.
Response time reduced from weeks to a few days depending on
location of well, equipment and weather.
• HWCG is not for profit company
• HWCG core equipment under contract (HESG - Q4000, HP1)
works on a daily basis to maintain and train personnel.

Preparedness - Training
• All HWCG members have signed a Mutual Aid Agreement that outlines the
manner in which the 15 member companies will share technical experts
and critical equipment during an event to a member.
• HWCG held 60+ well containment exercises over the last 2 years. This test
the Well Containment Plan and Mutual Aid. This includes hundreds of
experts from member companies, contract vendors and agencies
• Over 55 Permits approved with several in review – First permits (3), First
floating facility - TPL/SPAR, First flow and capture permits.
• Additional internal exercises continue to assure teams are prepared for the
6 primary position on the Source Control ICS organization chart. Focus on
specific area training, and continue to learn and test the plan and work
each area of responsibility.

Well Containment Plan
• The HWCG Deepwater Intervention Technical Committee (DITC)
worked with BSEE staff in a concerted effort to develop a
comprehensive Well Containment Plan (WCP)
– Addresses the agency requirements in NTL 2010-N10.
– BSEE approved HWCG RCD-Regional Containment Demonstration plan.
• The WCP uses well established procedures and lessons learned
from past incidents:
– Comprehensive procedures and schedules addressing multiple well
control scenarios (3) and responses
– Pre-identified services and equipment
– Comprehensive call out and “rapid response” activation protocols

BSEE – HWCG Equipment Deployment
• DOI is requiring HWCG to conduct a capping stack deployment
operation in April/May 2013 to demonstrate the group’s ability
to implement their response plan as outlined in their current
approved generic Well Containment Plan (WCP).
• The deployment plan outlined by BSEE indicates that source
control was the focus area with the physical deployment and
testing of the capping stack being the primary emphasis.
• Exercise was initiated through the conventional BSEE
unannounced drill program.
• The HWCG DITC established a support team to work with the
RP (Noble Energy) on planning and execution of the
deployment.
• Exercise initiated mobilization of full SMT which was stood
down once it fulfilled the requirements set forth by BSEE during
the exercise.
• The HWCG mutual aid program activated to the extent necessary.
• ICS implemented throughout the exercise, formal IAP developed.
• 24-hour operation
• 13 5/8” 10K capping stack deployment from Ingleside, TX location.
• Excess of 5,000 feet water depth.
• Test and function capping stack while on bottom.
• Standard notifications of equipment and personnel will follow plan
processes.

Key Strengths
• Mutual Aid Agreement: Allows 15 deepwater companies to share resources
(personnel and equipment) to withstand long-term events. Expertise in different
areas of event.
• Preparedness: Extensive training with numerous source control exercises which
facilitates a learning environment. Well Containment Plan is a living document
and will be updated as we achieve improved processes and procedures.
• 30 + service providers bring expertise to exercises and event.
• Core system equipment is maintained and operated daily in the GOM with
experienced crews poised to respond.
• Expansion plans are based on achievement of capacity growth by our members’
needs and requirements. Generic plan to be utilized by all members.
• 10K and 15K capping stack – 18 ¾” full-bore, double ram intervention capping
stack.
• HWCG is ready to respond to any well containment event in U.S. GOM.
