TOPIC: The Fires of Kuwait Revisited
Bill Washburn's timely talk will deal with the large project management aspects of the US$2 + billion fire fighting support and reconstruction/rehabilitation of the Kingdom of Kuwait's petroleum industry following the cessation of hostilities in Kuwait and Iraq after Operation Desert Storm.
His talk will feature a video showing before and after footage of the extinguishing of in excess of 650 burning wells and the repair of the facilities that followed. An international team of workers that approached 16,000 at its peak led this successful operation. The project management aspects included fast tracking due to environmental and economic priorities, multi-cultural teamwork, re-engineering and intensive logistical management.
