First HSE African Conference a Success

SPE Maputo

With the support and participation of the national oil company, Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos (ENH), the Instituto Nacional de Petróleo (National Petroleum Institute) and the recently established SPE Maputo Section, 120 delegates from 17 countries (Angola, Chad Gabon, Ghana, Indonesia, Italy, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, The Netherlands, United Arab Emirates, Uganda, UK and the USA) shared knowledge and experience on all matters relating to health, safety, security, and environment and social responsibility.

Panel sessions also focused on the subject of Ebola and “cultural heritage”, exploring the challenges and experience of working on an oil and gas project situated in or around an historical or archaeological site. 

In keeping with SPE’s policy for making charitable donations in response to natural disasters, SPE is contributing USD 10,000 to the independent, non-profit organization Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help fight the Ebola virus in Liberia where a SPE student chapter affiliated to the SPE Ghana Section exists.
