W&T Offshore, Stone Energy join Helix Well Containment Group

W&T Offshore and Stone Energy Corp. have joined The Helix Well Containment Group (HWCG), increasing the group’s membership to 22 deepwater oil and gas operators.

HWCG is a consortium of deepwater operators in the Gulf of Mexico who have come together with the common goal of quickly responding to a subsea spill to protect employees, communities and the environment.

"The Helix Well Containment Group has invested in the best available technology, engineering and minds, and applied the most important lessons learned from the past to create a comprehensive well containment response system ready to be activated immediately in the event of a deepwater spill," said John Weust, chairman of HWCG Steering Committee.

"Representing two-thirds of the deepwater operators in the Gulf of Mexico and approximately half of all deepwater oil and gas production in the Gulf, we further expand our technical expertise and resources with the addition of W&T Offshore and Stone Energy."
