Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) management within the petroleum industry continues to be a significant area of interest among stakeholders everywhere and Africa is no exception.
The oil industry in Africa has seen remarkable growth in recent years with new countries exploring and producing oil on both onshore and offshore assets.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together key stakeholders in the African region—operators, service companies, academicians and regulators, and others, to discuss the achievements and challenges, and propose ideas for sustaining effective HSE management in the petroleum sector.
This workshop will provide the platform for experts, practitioners and participants to engage in stimulating discussions. The discussions are expected to bring about recommendations and solutions for operation optimisation to deliver further value from existing capacities as well as sustain best HSE practices in Africa.
