SPE European HSE Conference and Exhibition

16 April 2013


Health, Safety, Environment, and Social Responsibility in the Oil and Gas Exploration and Production Industry

ERM is proud to be the Lead Sponsor of the Society of Petroleum Engineers’ European HSE Conference and Exhibition.

As the largest association for upstream exploration and production (E&P) professionals, SPE is well-respected for bringing the industry together, and it will hold its second regional Health Safety & Environment (HSE) event.  This event provides an excellent forum for HSE specialists in the oil and gas industry to come together and share best practices and discuss issues for future improvement. They also facilitate the sharing of views and concerns among a wide range of stakeholders.

The theme for this conference is ‘Delivering Consistent HSE and SR Performance Across Europe.' This highlights the opportunities the industry has to share best practices and raise the level of performance across the European E&P sector. Introduction of new and updated industry standards, as well as active engagement in dialogue with all stakeholders, will enable us to continue to maintain our licence to operate.

During this year’s conference ERM’s experts will provide thought leadership on a range of issues including:

  • High integrity process;
  • Socio-economic challenges of shale gas’ developments in Europe;
  • Bow-Tie Methodology: ten golden rules for robust bow-ties.
