1 and 2. Looking Back to Move Forward
Our keynote sessions will set the scene for the conference, with industry leaders, regulators and other prominent figures providing their own perspective on where the last year has left us, and sharing insights on what the future holds as industry steps up to meet the challenges of recovery from the pandemic and leading a once-in-a-generation move to a low carbon economy. Join us to learn more about how industry will meet society’s needs without ever losing focus on maintaining safe operations and security of supply.
3. Health and Wellbeing Offshore – Managing The Recovery
The industry has adapted exceptionally well to changes brought about by COVID-19, but it’s imperative we keep this momentum going and focus on what is required to effectively manage the recovery. This session will highlight the challenges posed by increasing manning levels, resuming suspended workscopes, and ask when and how it will be possible to remove COVID barriers.
4. Health and Wellbeing Offshore – COVID, Cardiac and Clinical Risk
This session explores the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic on the physical and mental health of the oil and gas workforce and examines how organisations have responded in order to support their people. The session includes a medical perspective on the question asked a lot: “who should work offshore?” and the challenges of managing the main physical and mental health issues affecting the industry before and during the pandemic.
5. Closing the Gap
In April 2018, our industry was challenged to step up its focus on hydrocarbon release prevention, to ensure we never again experience a significant incident in the UKCS. This session will review the work that has been taking place since then to address the root causes of hydrocarbon releases, discuss the progress made and introduce the tools and concepts available to help members bolster their own release prevention programmes.
6. The Future of HSE is Now
The offshore oil and gas industry is a leader when it comes to improving HSE performance across its assets. But over recent years, the KPI measures and trends would suggest that the improvements we enjoyed in the past are not so obvious. Are we now stuck on a plateau? This session takes a leap into the future, discussing topics such as developing world class leadership capabilities, exploring the potential of artificial intelligence, innovative technology and new understanding of human performance.
7. Journey to a Net-Zero Basin – The Big Picture
Join the experts shaping the country’s route to a net-zero economy and learn more about the role that the offshore oil and gas industry will play in ensuring the goals are met. The session will move from an overview of the wider low-carbon framework to explore future regulation and governance for offshore oil and gas.
8. Journey to a Net-Zero Basin – Industry in Action
Find out more about the areas in which the oil and gas industry are already taking action to reach their net zero goals in the UKCS. Here you will have the exclusive opportunity to learn what industry has already achieved, and what steps your organisation can take to ensure your own targets are met and exceeded.
9. Closing Session
The session will bring together the themes and conclusions of the previous two days, as well as delivering an exclusive insight into industry opinion and challenges on the main topics influencing the future of Health, Safety and Environmental performance in the oil and gas industry.
