The industries of the extractive sector face many risks of a similar nature. This conference brings together operators and service providers from both mining and oil & gas to explore our understanding of these risks and methods by which we can better manage them.
The decision to explore for a resource, and potentially extract it, poses a wide array of opportunities and threats.
The more robustly we can answer these questions and manage their accompanying risks, the more successful our projects will be.
Workshops into key risks faced by both mining and oil & gas.
Tips on managing risks from our operators' CEOs, Heads of Geoscience and Chief Risk Officers.
