Tomorrow officials with BOEMRE and the USCG are holding a workshop with technical representatives of the parties of interest in the investigation to determine the forensic test to be performed on the Horizon’s stack. The testing will be performed by Det Norske Veritas.  While the parties in interest will have input into the testing protocol, the final forensic testing protocol will be developed by the DNV Forensic Team and must be approved by the Joint Investigation prior to the start of testing.
