SPE Workshop: Emerging Fronts – HSE Management and Sustainability of Petroleum Operations in Africa 25 - 26 May 2021 Mövenpick Ambassador Hotel Accra, Ghana


Health, Safety and Environment 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 year’s SPE workshop is to bring together key stakeholders in the African region — operators, service companies, academicians and regulators, and others to discuss the achievements, challenges and propose ideas in sustaining effective HSE management in the petroleum sector. 


This workshop will provide the platform for the experts, practitioners and participants to engage in stimulating discussions. The discussions are expected to bring about recommendations and solutions on operation optimisation to deliver further value from existing capacities as well as sustain best HSE practices in Africa.
