Message from the Chairpersons
The SPE Symposium in Asia Pacific on Health, Safety, Security, Environment and Social Responsibility (HSSE-SR) will be held from 23 – 24 April 2019 in Kuala Lumpur.
The past five years have witnessed great shifts in the global energy industry. Stakeholders across the value chain continue to adapt to the new oil price environment and pace of digital advancements by developing innovative technologies, strategies and processes to effectively manage cost and seize opportunities to create value.
This symposium is aptly themed “Being Ahead of the Curve”, amidst an evolving business climate where emphasis is placed on leveraging lessons learnt and innovations to increase efficiencies and create value. We must examine how the industry can prepare, mitigate and respond to stay ahead of emerging technical, regulatory and societal challenges in a safe, secure and environmentally sustainable fashion. Furthermore with the opportunities that digitalisation and automation are creating, how can the industry take advantage and integrate such innovations to complement and not compromise on HSSE?
HSSE management is going beyond systems, processes and competencies to incorporate wider factors such as human performance and cultural aspects to achieve and sustain good HSSE performance. Being ahead of the curve is not only the ability to anticipate, but to also create sustainable solutions for the future.
To address these challenges, the Programme Committee is pleased to invite you to submit your paper proposal for the SPE Symposium: Asia Pacific HSSE-SR. The success of the programme is driven by the knowledge and technical sharing of industry professionals and we look forward to your submission of a paper proposal before the deadline of 1 October 2018.
This event will gather regional and global experts and practitioners across the upstream and downstream value chain to share best practices, progressive approaches and innovative applications to enhance HSSE performance. Participants will have the opportunity to gain insights from influential industry leaders and subject-matter experts, and together address how the industry can remain ahead of the curve.
We thank you in advance for your participation and with your support, we believe that this symposium will be a successful and significant event for the region. We look forward to welcoming you to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2019.
