Risk Management Summit 2017

Created with Sketch. STAVANGER

Risk Management in Change

NPF is pleased to welcome you to the 3rd. Risk Management Summit, where we aim to share knowledge about and experience with risk management across companies and industries. The NPF Risk Management Summit is an annual conference targeting leaders and risk management experts in the oil & gas industry.

This year’s conference will focus on managing risk in a rapid changing industry. Mergers, acquisitions, cost reductions, manning reductions and other changes are necessary, but introduce risk to personnel, environment, assets and reputation, – how is this risk managed? How can these changes be implemented with success?

Come and listen to project managers, risk management experts, leaders and other acknowledged speakers present their view on this important topic.

The conference facilities at Clarion Hotel Air present a congenial setting to promote extensive networking with colleagues and discuss topics related to risk management in the petroleum sector.
