A panel of knowledgeable scientists met and considered research needed to identify and measure important chronic effects of oil on the marine environment and to highlight priority work required if only limited funds were available. The activity was organized by Exxon Production Research Company (EPRCo) and was held November 4-6, 1974 in Houston, Texas.
