committee will examine approaches for regulation and oversight of deepwater exploration in the North Sea and other foreign locations. All of these activities are intended to inform the committee’s deliberations for its final report, due by June 2011. That report will provide the committee’s overall findings regarding the causes of the Deepwater Horizon incident and recommend approaches for minimizing the likelihood of similar events occurring in the future.

Sincerely,

Donald C. Winter

Chair,

Committee for the Analysis of Causes of the Deepwater Horizon Explosion, Fire, and Oil Spill to Identify Measures to Prevent Similar Accidents in the Future
