Coastal Marine Institute Research and Energy Industry Symposium 2012

20th Anniversary Symposium
Monday, April 23, 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
LSU Energy, Coast & Environment Building
Dalton J. Woods Auditorium

Twenty years of CMI’s research, output, and impact. Advance your understanding of how Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) energy exploration and production impact the natural environments and socio-economic health of coastal Louisiana.

  • Retrospectives by Principal Investigators (PIs) on 20 years of valuable research
  • Discussions on current offshore energy trends and ideas for solving energy issues facing Louisiana
  • Perspectives on the future of the offshore energy industry, specifically Louisiana’s oil, gas, and marine minerals resources

At the heart of this event is the important research coordinated by CMI, a highly productive and cost-effective collaboration among Louisiana State University, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM—formerly the Minerals Management Service), and the State of Louisiana.

Through CMI, over $26 million in research contracts have been awarded to researchers at LSU, LUMCON, UNO, and ULL—producing pivotal and foundational research, as well as positively affecting the scholarly development of more than 100 graduate and undergraduate students.
