This conference will explore state-of-the-art technologies and their effects on Sustainability (Balancing Economic Growth, Social Development and Environmental Protection). It will address the outstanding challenges and experiences in Health, Safety, Environmental and Sustainability for successful execution of oil and gas projects in now increasing demanding working environments.
This gathering intends to explore and discuss what has worked, what not worked, and areas where future technological innovations are required to strengthen the most-needed social license to operate. It will also provide an opportunity to networking, sharing and learning from industry's successful players on these matters.
This conference will be of great interest to technical, professional and management staff involved in planning, implementing, monitoring, and maintaining the life cycle of O&G projects in the region where extremely sensitive environments and social challenges exist (e.g. protected areas, rainforests, wetlands, freshwater lakes and rivers, deserts, arctic, mangroves, etc.). It will interest industry professionals and regulators from the following fields:
“Exploration, development and production of oil and gas resources provide affordable energy that contributes significantly to well-being and prosperity.
SPE encourages the responsible management of these oil and gas resources and operations including the appropriate management of social and environmental impacts and their related risks.
SPE demonstrates this commitment by offering its members opportunities to train, share knowledge and advance practices for doing business in ways that balance economic growth, social development, and environmental protection to meet societal needs today and in the future.”
