ERM Highlights: SPE HSSE-SR 2016
14 July 2016
The Society of Petroleum Engineers’ (SPE) International Conference and Exhibition on Health, Safety, Security, Environment, and Social Responsibility (HSSE–SR) is one of the oil & gas industry’s premier global events to share best practice and learnings on how to address some of the HSSE-SR challenges facing the sector.
ERM was once again pleased to support this event as a major sponsor and help foster the dialogue it generated. The conference was naturally dominated by issues surrounding the current low oil price (such as how to manage HSSE-SR risks successfully in a resource-constrained environment), but there were also discussions around the streamlining of opportunities the current situation (the “new normal”) presents. We were delighted to see that sustainability had such a prominent focus at the conference, as evidenced by the conference theme itself: ‘Sustaining Our Future through Innovation and Collaboration’.
One of the most enjoyable aspects of the conference was the sharing of insights with our valued clients, either within the various technical sessions, in discussions over coffee/lunch or through the many conversations either at our exhibition stand or at our cocktails reception at the Oil Museum. In this document we have picked out some of the trends and issues which resonated most at the conference, as well as some of the insights we contributed. We hope you find it useful in stimulating further thought, or reinforcing your own thinking, which we would be happy to discuss with you.
