Webinar: “Getting To Zero – The Road to Stavanger” – Latin American and Caribbean Region

Tune into the upcoming Webinar “Getting to Zero Series: The Road to Stavanger – Latin America and Caribbean Region,” presented by Jack Hinton and John Karish on 23 February, to hear how Baker Hughes established their Perfect HSE Day.

The online event will detail the remarkable results it provided, such as quadrupling their number of incident-free days in only two years and achieving the equivalent of a perfect quarter in 2014.

The SPE Gulf Coast Section is hosting this interactive session to initiate the industry’s conversation as to how we can eliminate HSE incident occurrence. This is the fourth in a series of events that will culminate in a workshop that will be held in conjunction with the 2016 SPE International HSE Conference in Stavanger.

Inspire the Development of New Technology

What is an SPE Forum?

SPE Forums are unique, by-invitation-only SPE events that bring together top technologists, innovators, and managers to address a specific industry challenge. Participation in a forum builds a professional network that will enhance a career for a lifetime.  Participants are encouraged to come prepared to contribute their experience and knowledge, rather than be spectators or students.

The objective is to create a collaborative, idea-generating arena that stimulates new ideas and innovation about future challenges facing the E&P industry.

Who should participate?

  • Experienced professionals who want to exchange ideas with others in your area of technical expertise. Forums offer an exclusive opportunity to interact with innovators, seasoned professionals, and leading technologists.
  • Young professionals with relevant experience and knowledge of the forum topic. Forums are a window on the future that belongs to the next generation of professionals.

Application Information

Participants at SPE Forums are selected by the Forum Steering Committee based on the ability to contribute to the discussion of the topic.  Attendance is limited to maximize each person’s opportunity to contribute.  For more details:  SPE Forums
