Proposals of NCOC N.V. to the International SPE Petroleum Technical Conference

The Caspian Sea is the world’s largest land-locked inland water body. It is rich with hydrocarbon and biological resources. Because of its geographical location, natural climatic and hydrological conditions, the Caspian Sea can be considered a unique center for biodiversity conservation.

At present, the Caspian Sea ecosystem is undergoing significant changes. The most significant stressors are global climate change, warming up and drying of the Caspian region, sea level drop, increasing offshore oil and gas activities and marine navigation.

It is imperative that actions are taken now to prevent irreversible impacts on the biodiversity of Caspian Sea.

All five Caspian littoral states have taken firm steps towards biodiversity conservation through summits and bilateral arrangements.    However, the oil and gas industry should have a united effort in supporting the states through the following activities:

  • Caspian-wide Integrated Environmental Impact Monitoring and Biodiversity Study Programme

Creation of a regional Caspian-wide integrated Environmental Impact Monitoring and Biodiversity Study Programme (study of the seawater, bottom sediments, air quality, ichthyofauna, zoobenthos, zoo-phytoplankton, and micro-organisms), in order to timely identify trends of potential negative impacts and take relevant environment protection and biodiversity conservation measures in the entire Caspian Sea.

  • Caspian-wide Integrated Well Securing and Kill Plan

The purpose of this plan is to define the actions, agreements, arrangement and resources which could be conducted and mobilized in the event of a loss of containment from a wellhead (well blow-out). 

  • Caspian-wide Integrated Oil spill responses at III Level

Currently the oil and gas operators must meet oil spill response requirements at national level. In the case of transnational spill or Tier 3 spill, agreements with industry-funded cooperatives for tier 3 response like Oil Spill Response Limited (OSRL) are activated. Agreements with these organizations allow for increased capability in oil spill response, however, they still possess some limitations like speed of mobilization, immediate availability of resources and in-situ requirements for immediate response. The Caspian littoral states and oil and gas industry should be able to consolidate efforts for Tier 3 Oil spill response to overcome these limitations.

To summarize, all oil and gas companies operating in the Caspian Region should consider the opportunity to unite efforts to build a sustainable conservation and protection model within the region. This will allow for a collective coverage of the risks and development of consolidated and effective mitigation measures at the local, national and international levels.

Technical Session 3: Culture Transformation & Visible Leadership Conference Hall 3
Session Chairpersons Vincent Spinelli, KMG; Jack Hinton, BakerHughes, a GE Company
Speaker(s) Sergey Peresypkin, BHGE; Dan Weidlein, Chevron/TCO; Olav Skår, IOGP; Gulnara Daulova, KPO; Stacey Ford, Exxonmobil; Hans Berg, Shell

The objective of this session is to raise awareness amongst Operational & HSE Leaders in the Caspian region on the way leadership shapes Safety Culture in the Oil and Gas industry.  This session will explain what Safety Culture and Visible Safety Leadership means, and specifically describes the leadership characteristics that can influence Safety Culture.  Within this session, there are four sub-topics to explore:

  • Elements for a Positive Safety Culture
  • Building a Positive Safety Culture
  • Safety Leadership Characteristics
  • Visible Transformational Leadership

This session will give attendees an understanding and awareness that building and sustaining a positive Safety Culture is not a discreet event, but a journey. A manager’s style of leadership and visible demonstration of their commitment to safety, through actions, is important in shaping the organization’s culture. Improving Safety Culture requires determination and stamina. Long-term focus, commitment, and a willingness to ‘walk-the-talk’ are more influential than posters, procedures and policies.

 

Secondly, a strong Safety Culture is not an absolute guarantee against incidents, but is a barrier against complacency and violations; which are commonly listed in incident reports. A Management System not backed-up by a positive Safety Culture will not give the desired outcomes. Many Oil and Gas companies can be proud of their Safety Culture and the results of their effort to reduce the number of incidents and injuries. However, a positive Safety Culture is often not uniform throughout an organization, and all companies have the potential to improve.

The raise of machines and their impact on HSSE

The emergence of the 4th Industrial revolution introduced significant challenges and opportunities for the Oil & Gas industry players. It has challenged the limits of any organization and its inner environment on how it should be managing HSE & Process Safety practices, while embracing digital transformation to ensure optimization, efficiency and safe operations across entire value chain.

In the past, implementation of HSE & Process Safety practices was built on the back of the competent human capital, HSE management systems and various behavioral / culture improvement programs. However, with the growing trend of technology convergence, digitalization in the context of contemporary globalization have challenged industrial leaders to review their business and HSE operating models and pushed them think differently for a better future.

The raise of disruptive, innovative, smart & complex technological solutions such as Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Machine learning, Internet of Things (IOTs), Block Chain and Big Data Analytics in contrast to the conventional safety systems, conceivably turns out as an integral element in the overall algorithm of HSSE management.

Henceforth, in this panel, we will be discussing the industrial and technological changes and how they contribute to HSSE. How these technologies are transforming business results and adding value to the bottom line through the prism of HSSE. This panel may showcase some innovative solutions that creates positive impact to the HSSE aspect.

Industry experts today continue to be challenged by the question of how to develop and work with systems that provide the levels of risk management and assurance required to provide a highly reliable and incident free operation. This has been a challenge in the oil and gas supply chain from upstream E&P operations, midstream processing and manufacturing operations to downstream storage and oil and gas movement.

Using the standards and systems is not enough to provide that assurance needed. It can be argued that to achieve the level of reliability required even with the most sophisticated Process Safety and Asset Integrity Management Systems, it is only through experiential knowledge and understanding the human element, especially after incidents and studying their investigation findings, that we can try to understand what seems to be still going wrong.

Clearly, the safety culture maturity within organizations is a significant factor to consider. Through the developments in understanding and with the greater insights from our research from informed practitioners and human factors specialists, we now have a greater understanding of the importance of understanding the strategies of implementing PSM taking in to account the human element.

This session in this inaugural SPE event in Kazakhstan will bring experts from near and far to discuss the human factors aspects in implementing effective loss prevention strategies and maximising the effectiveness of the process safety management systems.
