Approaches to upstream asset major accident hazard management with learnings from inside and outside of the oil and gas industry.

2 - 3 October 2019

Download the booking form - only members/non-members booking for two days can book online. Please download the booking form for all other booking options.

This timely conference will explore the latest industry thinking, best practice, research and lessons learned and innovation with relevance to the management of major accident hazards associated with oil and gas assets.

In 2010 the Energy Institute published its High-Level Framework for Management of Process Safety. This cross-industry guidance was developed with input from several high-hazard industry sectors including oil and gas and has been endorsed by the industry safety regulator.

This conference seeks to build on these principles of cross-industry learning to examine approaches to the assessment and management of common major accident hazards from within, and without the upstream sector.
