Oil & Gas Security 2013 Summit was held on 12th-13th June in London
London (PRWEB UK) 25 June 2013
International Research Networks, based in London, recently hosted the well-attended 2nd Annual Oil & Gas Security Summit which took place on the 12th - 13th June at the Tower of London, Double Tree Hilton hotel.
With more than 80 companies and 130 delegates in attendance, IRN gathered an outstanding panel of experts from NATO, the European Commission, the Centre for Security Studies, GDF Suez, OMV, and Total amongst others, who provided attendees with detailed analysis of a number of major threats to international and national oil companies’ operations across the globe.
The In Amenas Hostage crisis, security to an IOC’s Columbian operations, cyber security and how it can impact your operational efficiency, and formulating re-entry plans into difficult regions, such as Yemen, were just a few of the case studies that were covered over the highly informative two-day event.
The speaker faculty agreed that social media and information openly available on the web can be both beneficial and damaging for IOCs, as it is a major source of information for both themselves and the groups that pose a threat to them.
The Summit had official support from the Maritime Security Review, SAMI, IPSA and Industrial Cybersecurity Centre Associations. The delegation consisted of senior level representatives from TAQA, Baker Hughes, Bankers Petroleum Ltd., Betafence, BG Tunisia, Exxon Mobil, GDF Suez, Genel Energy, Husky Energy Inc, NCOC, Nexen Petroleum, OMV, Petrofac, Qatar Petroleum, Raytheon, Repsol, Rosneft, Shell International BV, Sonangol E&P, Statoil, Subsea 7, Total E&P and many others.
The Summit was sponsored by TRACK 24, G4S, i.b.s., Maritime Risk Solutions, GB Hawk/FAF Development/GNI, AR&T Ltd, Neahoo, Fotech Solutions, and Restrata/Olive Group.
