Join the world's leading experts and professionals on the forefront of fighting today's threats to secure onshore and offshore exploration, production, transportation and storage of oil, gas and other commodities as well as the staffs responsible for them. Over twenty plenary speakers from essential advisory, risk management, insurance, protection, kidnap negotiation and anti-piracy services will engage in a discussion forum on the issues and risks as well as strategies and tactics using in-depth case studies taken directly from news headlines and first-hand encounters. This conference is highly-interactive and includes Q&A sessions, networking coffee breaks/luncheon and an exhibition.
“The increase in energy terrorism news highlights the need for experts with first-hand knowledge and those with security interests in the sector to confront the situation together in a practical manner which is the intent of this conference,” says Clara Lippert Glen, President and CEO, The Oxford Princeton Programme. “Holding this event in Central London ensures wide attendance by and access to those directly engaged in limiting exposure and risk.”
Key highlights include:
- Negotiations that led to the safe release of oil workers in Nigeria and other locations as well as that of multinational tanker crews in the Gulf of Aden, the Horn of Africa and other piracy hotspots.
- Skills and tactics employed in protecting pipelines, refineries, storage tanks, power stations, compounds, offices, embassies, hotels and other key infrastructure, as well as harbours and ships not to mention staffs including expatriates, their families, business travelers, national work forces, and ship crews.
- Presentations by former members of the British Army - all with considerable knowledge and experience operating in hostile territories - who now advise corporations on essential ways to protect assets and staffs.
- Risk assessment experts and insurance and legal specialists to provide clarity on other key issues that face companies and staff operating in such high-risk environments.
