F14 - Safety & Risk Management

Safety of the people, assets and environment has always been and will continue to be the focus of the industry. Assessment of all the risks and uncertainties and the development of practical strategies is necessary to ensure highest safety standards and risk minimisation and mitigation. Achieving those objectives are dependent on training, quality data and robust workflow processes and robust and reliable procedures in place to identify, evaluate and address the broad variety of risks inherent in the oil and gas industry. In this forum we will look at best practices, increasing adaptation of innovation in technology, and strategies as requirements for highest level of safety and successful risk management as part of a good governance.
