Message from the Chairpersons

Dear Colleague:

On behalf of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) and the Conference Programme Committee, we invite you and your colleagues to participate in the 2016 SPE International Conference and Exhibition on Health, Safety, Security, Environment, and Social Responsibility. It takes place 11–13 April 2016, in Stavanger, Norway.

This edition of the oil and gas industry’s premier HSE event celebrates its 25th year. It brings together experts from all over the world to share new ideas, process improvements, technological advancements, and innovative applications to enhance HSE performance. It also provides a neutral forum where a wide range of perspectives from a variety of stakeholders can be explored.

Themed ‘Sustaining Our Future Through Innovation and Collaboration,’ this biennial conference welcomes to Stavanger more than 1200 health, safety, security, environment, and social responsibility leaders and professionals, working in and beyond the oil and gas sector. Our theme reflects the opportunity we all have to collaborate and contribute to our global success. It also captures the global imperative in today’s climate to maximise our HSE programmes in order to achieve the objectives of our shareholders and stakeholders.

Our goal is to reach beyond the industry by introducing presentations, special topical sessions, and networking opportunities unavailable anywhere else. Our technical programme will reflect the diverse perspectives and concerns of our attendees.

The conference provides an excellent opportunity for professionals to share experiences with colleagues and build fruitful relationships with stakeholders.
