Process Safety Summit

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

The region's leading event bringing together process safety professionals from NOCs and IOCs

The oil and gas industry is potentially one of the most hazardous industry sectors in the Mena regions. For example, It has been estimated that the rate of accidents of it is 2.5% higher than construction industry and 7% than other critical sectors.

Handling and minimising the risks of incidents is a crucial day-to-day activity of a process safety stakeholder to ensure the safety of assets, people and operations. The question of how to minimise the risks and incident, however, is a question yet to be fully answered, not just in the Middle East, but in the oil and gas sector worldwide.
