December 2019 Technical Luncheon: Beyond Compliance – 2.0

December 17, 2019 @ 11:45 am - 1:15 pm

$30.00 – $60.00

SPE WA are proud to present the details of our November technical luncheon. Come along to our traditional end-of-year technical luncheon with updates from NOPSEMA.

About the Presentation

This talk will show that “Regulation” does not have to be cumbersome or dull, and that a changed perspective and improved understanding can lead to better business – and better safety and well integrity outcomes. This year Derrick will return, providing an update on what “Beyond Compliance” means, and how NOPSEMA are pursuing strategies to improve industry performance beyond simple compliance requirements. Come along and learn about:

  • NOPSEMA’s perspective of our offshore industry – in a global context
  • Emerging technologies and world-leading projects
  • Drivers for behavioural change (within industry and the regulator itself)
  • An improvement framework to achieve world class performance
  • Examples of recent incidents and learning opportunities
  • Opportunities for use of “big data” to identify future trends
  • Engagement of international regulators to influence industry action
