Rigs to Reefs: From controversy to consensus on decommissioning California's offshore oil platforms.

April 16, 2024

Speaker: Max Henrion (Lumina Decision Systems)

Abstract:

Since the 1969 Santa Barbara oil spill, anything about offshore oil is controversial in California, even what to do with defunct oil platforms. I'll describe how a multidisciplinary team developed an interactive decision analysis model using a multi-attribute value function that enabled conflicting stakeholders to understand the options and arrive at agreement about a solution. This project won the Decision Analysis Practice Award in 2014.
