Executive Plenary Session: Protecting People, Environment, Asset, and Reputation—Are We Prepared?

Moderator: Saif Al Naimi, Director, HSE Regulations and Enforcement Directorate 

For the past few years optimising business performance, reducing risk, protecting people, and the environment has become a major challenge for the oil and gas industry.

All environmental, safety, and risk management challenges are unique, and as such, need a customised approach. One is tailor-made to meet the needs; another is to deliver a measurable positive outcome combined with outstanding credentials and technical excellence at the same time.

By integrating environmental innovation and engineering services along with safety and risk management, it will help to underpin the safe operation, environmental sustainability, and ultimate success of oil and gas companies.

Are we truly prepared to protect the People, Environment, Assets, and Reputation? And how can we improve?

Across the corporate world we are seeing a growing focus on good governance and HSE performance as a source of both risk and potential competitive advantage. Organisations need to demonstrate that their duty of care has been met to increase the safety and environmental requirements.

This plenary session will address these issues:

  • How can we demonstrate a better management and mitigation of safety and environmental risks?
  • How can we perform more effectively, develop and implement a more efficient organisation to improve environmental and safety performance?
  • How can we optimise operational efficiency across our portfolio in order to increase output from limited resource and protect our assets?
