In June, SPE held the inaugural Health, Safety, Social Responsibility and Environment (HSSE) regional conference in Lima, Peru. More than 170 attendees from more than 80 companies in 15 countries gathered in Lima. Attendees benefited from more than 43 technical presentations and two plenaries on sensitive subjects such as, “How to Address/Obtain a License to Operate in Sensitive Areas” and “Measurements and Improvements After Industry Accidents.” “HSSE is a much needed area in our industry, but hard to implement and maintain at the high standards we all do apply,” said Barbara Bruce President and General Manager Hunt Oil Exploration and Production Co. of Peru, and Chairperson of HSSE Conference.
