IRN, the London-based global summits organiser, is hosting the HSE Med 2014 Summit on 21st-22nd January in Florence, bringing together key HSE figures from the Mediterranean oil and gas industry to speak about their HSE policies and strategies, looking for ways to optimise safety while ensuring successful oil and gas operations.

Recently, IRN interviewed Jean-Philippe Berillon from GDF Suez Global Gas and LNG, who specifically highlighted the fact that in the Mediterranean “threats are different and intensified by the fact that many countries are involved.” Given his vast experience as the Senior Vice President for Security & Safety in an international company, he will be sharing key insights on emergency management and effective interaction of multiple stakeholders during a crisis.
