Bristow to be Featured in George Bush Library Offshore Drilling Exhibit
March 25, 2014
Bristow Group will be featured in the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum’s newest exhibit, “Offshore Drilling: The Promise of Discovery.” Through the exhibit, visitors will learn about the past, present and future of the offshore drilling industry. The exhibit will include a four foot AW139 model in Bristow livery accompanied by a large framed photo of the aircraft in operation.
Shell is title sponsor and there are supporting sponsorships from Ensco, Schlumberger and Move Resource Group. The exhibit covers all aspects of the search for oil offshore with industry pioneers recounting their personal experiences. Visitors are taken from start to finish — developing the "play" to platform production — via an interactive display.
A video wall highlights careers and life on board a rig. In addition to the Bristow helicopter, there are models of rigs, platforms and supply vessels that are used in the industry, and pieces of drilling equipment.
"President Bush was an entrepreneurial Texas oilman, first in Midland-Odessa then later in Houston and offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. This exhibit is an ambitious undertaking for our museum and staff, reflecting the ambition and enormous scale of the offshore industry itself," said Bush Library and Museum Director Warren Finch. Industry experts and guest speakers will highlight various aspects of offshore drilling at monthly issues forums at the library and museum.
The exhibit begins on March 31, 2014 and will run through February 1, 2015. For more information about the "Offshore Drilling: The Promise of Discovery" exhibit go to.
