Recent major incidents and an on-going effort to standardise and, where necessary, improve approaches to the regulation and management of health, safety and environmental issues within the European E&P sector, have resulted in a range of new initiatives being developed on behalf of the European Commission. This plenary session will consider the most significant of these initiatives and the implication of their application within the industry.

Well Life Cycle Practices Forum – O&G UK            
Graham Robinson, Marathon

Recent incidents in the drilling sector have caused the E&P industry to review the manner in which it manages drilling operations and how it responds to drilling related incidents when they arise. Through trade associations including OGP, IPIECA, IADC and Oil and Gas UK, the industry has progressed a number of initiatives ranging from those that focus on improving and developing hardware (e.g. the BOP or capping device), to those that address human factors related challenges (e.g. through improving training in non-technical skills).

In the first of three sessions, the key HSE related initiatives the industry has developed over the past two years and is continuing to develop, will be presented and discussed.
