Event type:
Workshop, Conference
Organised by:
1. Geological Society Events, 2017 Year of Risk
Imperial College London
Event status:

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.

  • Will there be anything worth extracting in the ground, and can you prove it?
  • Do you have the technical skill to extract, process or produce it both economically and responsibly?
  • Will you be able to gain and retain your licence to operate?
  • Will the need for your resource, and price it commands be sustained throughout the life of your asset?
  • What will your legacy be when you have walked away from site?

The more robustly we can answer these questions and manage their accompanying risks, the more successful our projects will be.
