HARC's Environmentally Friendly Drilling Systems Program received a $125,000 grant from the National Academy of Sciences to develop a virtual offshore disaster training site. HARC's EFD Program team will work to enhance oil and gas workers’ ability to prevent and respond to offshore disasters by developing an interactive, virtual training tool. Workers will be able to use this tool to practice how they would respond to an emergency offshore.
