15P Accounting for Sustainability Performance: Getting the Right Data to the Right People in the Right Form

Utilization of quality data and information to drive good business decision-making is integral to every company. This session will examine how sustainability performance information can be a resource for improved business performance for the oil and gas sector. As an industry, we collect and report sustainability data to internal and external - regulatory, fiduciary and non-governmental - stakeholders in order to assess and influence business performance through elements that we can control. Although industry reporting guidelines exist, there is no standardized Sustainability reporting system recognized by all stakeholders and companies. As a result, industry and stakeholders are faced with key questions that this panel session will explore: • What information should be collected that will satisfy both business and external performance demands? • How does the oil and gas industry align around common Sustainability factors and measures? • Which industries have successfully integrated Sustainability indicators into meaningful actions? • What are some examples of successful integration of Sustainability indicators into performance - both inside and outside of our industry? • Going forward, how can we improve decision making, drive sustainability and improve business performance within our companies?

19t Learnings From Conflict Zones

Session Chairpersons:

Emery Brusset, Social Terrain; Krish Ravishankar, Oxy

Conflict may not always be overt, but it is an important dimension of the social responsibility of companies. Other industries (mining), remote regions, joint interventions, all offer useful and practical examples of how this could be done. The notion of sensitive environments speaks to the significant financial and reputational implications of getting it right.

21P Well Operations: Crew Resources Management

The introduction of Crew Resource Management skills has shown proven benefits in industries such as aviation, maritime, medicine, and construction. Can the introduction of non-technical skills such as situational awareness, leadership, and team work show the same type of benefit for drilling operations? This panel will explore the issues faced by other industries in adapting CRM to their needs, the challenge of translating academic concepts to practical rig applications, and how CRM might best be introduced in well operations to ensure acceptance and effective usage.

22P Climate Change - Past, Present and Future

Very few issues evoke the same level of passion and controversy as climate change. Some argue that climate change now poses the greatest single threat to humanity, while others debate the premise itself. Despite personal viewpoints, the issue is here to stay and the energy industry has a definitive role to play. In late 2015, world leaders met in Paris as part of the U.N. climate conference (COP21) in an effort to agree upon an emissions reduction framework. Like the issue itself, the oil and gas industry is quickly evolving and must play a constructive role to help balance economic, environmental, and societal priorities. The session panelists will discuss the implications of COP21 for various stakeholders, identify potential roadblocks, and provide their views on the role industry must play going forward.

24t Process Safety and Well Control Management

Session Chairpersons:

Thomas Laird Knode, Statoil; Jonathan Smith, Maersk Oil

The Exploration and Production side of the oil and gas industry has become increasingly focused on process safety over the past decade or more. Risk analysis and mitigations often reference barrier management and processes are in place to ensure the effectiveness of these controls. In this session we will review some of the latest thinking around process safety management and monitoring of barriers or controls. We will also examine the risks and impacts of the loss of containment.

26t Local Content: Creating Shared Values

Session Chairpersons:

Jonathan T. Motherwell, JTM Associates; Krish Ravishankar, Oxy

Host countries have been increasingly turning towards local content as a means for ensuring that development of oil and gas reserves delivers benefits to their citizens beyond the payment of royalties and taxes. Many oil and gas companies have identified that local content efforts, when strategically approached, can be a significant enabler of long term value for companies, communities and countries. Today local content good practice is informed by the concept of creating ‘shared value’.

28P Why Can't We Make Things Simple?

The plethora of industry and stakeholder standards, trade association guidance, company standards, audit requirements etc has led to a bureaucratic and inefficient approach to the management of HSE. Through harmonisation and alignment of industry standards, we can free up resources, reduce costs and make the operations safer. The core industry value to achieving no harm is after all, the same for all of us.

29P Unconventional Resources: Social License to Operate

Unconventional resources including shale oil and gas have resulted in significant oil and gas development in North America with expectations that it will occur across the globe where the geology, society, and expectations permit. This panel will explore the development to date including how impacts have been identified and managed through key studies, regulator actions and tools, voluntary programmes, and scientific assessment. Still the expansion of unconventional resources is occurring in an uneven manner and the panel will discuss the social responsibility aspects through the perspective of those working closest to the oil and gas action.

31t Process Safety Management: Indicators and Elements

Session Chairpersons:

Fiona Aoun, Chevron; Matthew James Zerafa, Riskbytes

'You can't manage what you don't measure' is an old adage applied in PSM by establishing process safety performance measurements and leading and lagging KPIs. How you measure is as important as what you measure in managing major incident risk. This session will explore the combination of risk management and asset integrity principles to prevent process safety incidents, the application of KPIs in measuring hardware and human related barrier performance, and the relationship between process safety indicators and major accident risk.

33t Managing Community Issues Before They Escalate

Session Chairpersons:

Roper Cleland, International Alert; Michael J. Seymour, Shell

Operational activities, even those achieving the highest standards, can have varied social and environmental impacts, and can raise interest, concerns and complaints. Many companies provide channels for affected individuals or communities to raise questions or concerns with a company and to have them addressed in a prompt, fair and consistent manner. Applied effectively, such channels can offer efficient, timely and low-cost forms of conflict resolution for all concerned parties. Used as integral elements of broader stakeholder and community engagement, they can enhance local relationships and can have a positive impact on operational plans, schedules and costs.
