A conference to reflect, review, reinforce and re-energise

Oil & Gas UK held a major offshore safety conference this summer, which marked the 25th anniversary of the Piper Alpha disaster.


Piper 25 was a three-day event held at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre from 18 to 20 June 2013, chaired by Oil & Gas UK chief executive, Malcolm Webb. It aimed to bring together people from across the oil and gas industry to reflect on the lessons learnt from the tragedy, review how far offshore safety has evolved since and to reinforce industry commitment to continuous improvement.

 

With Piper Alpha as a central theme, the conference also explored broader safety issues and featured high profile international speakers from a diverse range of backgrounds. The full conference agenda can be viewed here, the three days comprised of both plenary and parallel sessions allowing delegates to tailor their individual programmes to their own areas of expertise and interest.

 

The parallel sessions encompassed the following topic areas:

  1. Safety Management Systems and Control of Work
  2. Major Hazard Management and Safety Technology
  3. Human and Organisational Factors
  4. Emergency Preparedness and Response
  5. FABIG Session: Advances in Fire & Explosion Engineering (18 June only)
