Oil & Gas Critical Infrastructure & Asset Security Forum Set For Vienna Next Month

Designed to help oil and gas organizations working in highly vulnerable operational environments to optimise their security strategies

The security of key energy resources is fundamental to our welfare and prosperity. Many links along the global supply chain for oil and gas have been disrupted due to a variety of security threats in recent years, and the frequency of these attacks is increasing.

The Oil & Gas Critical Infrastructure & Asset Security Forum programme has been finalised for the 19 - 21 September 2012 in Vienna, Austria. The programme has been designed to help oil & gas organisations working in highly vulnerable operational environments to optimise their security strategies and to ensure 360degree(s) protection of their energy assets.

The forum spans 2.5 days of learning, best practice benchmarking, networking, partnership-building, and the best and latest thinking in global energy leadership. It will bring together senior-level security, business resilience, and safety personnel to the Austria Trend Park Royal Palace to address key challenges for the industry in the form of case studies, covering aspects of the value chain, particularly in upstream and midstream oil and gas operations, including:

- Overcoming Concerns of Theft to Gain Maximum Control Over your Critical Energy Assets - Jakub Ludvik, Chief Security Officer, RWE Transgas - Practical Strategies to Deal with Security Risks: Using Systematic Approaches in Complex and Dynamic Environments - A Case Study by Statoil - Oddmund Granli, Head of HSE and Risk Management, Statoil - Implementing Plans for Crisis and Emergency Situations in your Offshore Operations - R.P.
