The Ocean Energy Safety Institute (OESI) consortium, formed from the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station and its partners, is a consortium of industry, academia and national labs with expertise in offshore energy and related fields.
Consortium membership is open to eligible, qualified and relevant organizations. The consortium is organized around cross-functional teams, application area teams, workforce development and technology transfer teams. Consortium members are assigned to one or more of these teams based on alignment with each team’s underlying objectives.
Consortium members have the opportunity to:
- Compete for research dollars through participation in project calls.
- Collaborate with leading researchers and facilities offered by consortium members.
- Network and collaborate with other members to learn best practices and explore joint ventures.
