Risk Management Summit 2019


NPF is pleased to welcome you to the 4th 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 petroleum industry where the speed of changes is increasing, new and advanced technologies are introduced, security threats is increasing, and the environmental impact of our industry is debated on the political arena.

Come and listen to leaders, risk management experts and other acknowledged speakers present their view, and maybe solutions to, how changes in the context in which we operate impact their risk management perspectives.

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.
