Risk Management Summit 2021

Created with Sketch. STAVANGER

NPF is pleased to welcome you to the 5th 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.


The purpose of the NPF Risk Management Summit is sharing knowledge and experience about risk management. This annual conference has been held since 2015, targeting leaders and risk management experts in the petroleum industry. It provides a unique opportunity to hear from acknowledged experts representing academia, authorities, and different industries.

Send us your abstract by 9th December!

Each year we receive great ideas for topics for the next Summit. We use these ideas to finalize the program. Therefore, interested speakers are now formally invited to submit an abstract (~300 words) describing the main ideas of their presentation. Risk management is a wide field, focusing both on opportunities and threats. Thus, a wide range of abstracts can be accepted. However, we advise that abstracts should focus on one of the three preliminary main topics of this risk management summit, especially topics no. 2 and 3:

  1. Outline of the future of the industry, and the operating parameters (“rammebetingelser”) of the industry, for instance
    a. Changing conditions in the industry
    b. The role of the contractors, possible ways of sharing risks and benefits?
    c. The effect of the pandemic – new ways of working, constraints on maintenance etc
    d. An uncertain future – risk scenarios that may hit as hard as this pandemic?
    e. What can we expect from the technology development?
    f. Cyber risks and security risks
  2. Effective risk management in the petroleum industry
    a. Managing the risks from the new tax incentives for the petroleum industry – will fast tracking lead to challenges?
    b. Culture: Practical examples of leaders creating a culture, for better or worse.
    c. Assessments depend on robust data sets. Do we have enough relevant data? What can we learn from comparing Norwegian HSE results with other countries? How does a under/over-reporting culture contribute?
    d. Integrating ESG risks to the Enterprise risk picture. How does it affect the future of the industry?
    e. New ways of working since 12th of March. Challenges and positives contributions, such as working from home, restrictions on travelling to the installations etc
  3. Practical risk assessment tools and techniques
    a. How to assess organizational and cultural effects, and how to use it in practical risk management.
    b. Situational awareness is a buzz word in many accident investigations.
    c. New standards for risk assessments
    d. Risk acceptance criteria
    e. Integrated Risk Management; methodology for compilation of an integrated risk picture on an Enterprise Level
