Energy Terrorism Conference: Countering Threats to Physical Assets and Human Capital
29-30 June 2010, CBI Conference Centre – London, UK
Join the world’s leading experts on the forefront of fighting today’s threats to the security of exploration, production, transportation and storage of oil, gas and other commodities as well as the staffs responsible for them. 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 first-hand encounters. This conference is highly-interactive and includes Q&A sessions, networking and meeting with top kidnap negotiators.
“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.”
- Kidnap negotiations that have led to the safe release of oil workers in Nigeria and other oil producers as well as that of multi-national 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, business travellers, 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.
- 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.
Key speakers scheduled include:
Mr. Colin Freeman, Chief Foreign Correspondent of The Sunday Telegraph, and Spanish photographer Jose Cendon, were seized in Somalia on November 26, 2008, on their way to the airport after covering a story on piracy. They were moved around by their kidnappers and held in caves before being released on January 4, 2009, after a 40-day incarceration. How did Mr Freeman cope being held as a hostage? How was he treated and how is he coping after such an ordeal?
Mr. John Hudspith was working for an oil service company in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria where, on February 18, 2006, he, with others, was kidnapped and held for 38 days. He was one of the last of the group to be released, and now conducts hostage survival training for companies.
Captain Peter Stapleton, a British captain, has first-hand experience of being chased by pirates in the Gulf of Aden, in April 2009, and who employed an ingenious method to repel them, despite his ship being raked by continuous gunfire and RPGs.
