OSEA2014 International Conference Will Convey Strategies to Spur Oil & Gas Industry Development

Singapore, Aug 12, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - OSEA2014 International Conference, a distinguished Asian platform where oil and gas industry thought leaders and experts from around the world come together, will return from 2 to 5 December at the Marina Bay Sands Singapore to unveil a new and stimulating programme that tackles the needs of Asia's oil and gas industry.

The Conference, held concurrently with the OSEA2014 exhibition, provides a prominent and invaluable platform for discussion on the important issues and challenges facing the industry. More than 200 speakers and delegates from 30 countries/regions attended the last edition of the conference held in 2012.

Commenting on the conference, keynote speaker John Westwood, Group Chairman of Douglas-Westwood says, "There is keen interest in the Asia Pacific region and as offshore and building activities continue to grow in the future, the region is likely to be a major draw for international and regional companies. Industry expertise and knowledge should also grow along with these developments."

"I am pleased to note that the OSEA International Conference has been keeping pace with developments in the industry, especially in the Asia Pacific region. This year's conference programme will be addressing the major issues, trends and impact on the industry as the region continues to grow and I look forward to fruitful discussions with delegates," Mr. Westwood adds.

- Joint Keynote and Case Study

The OSEA2014 International Conference will open with a Joint Keynote and Case Study. Titled "The Future of Oil & Gas Exploration and Supply", the Joint Keynote will be presented by John Westwood and Dan K. Eberhart, CEO of Canary, an oilfield drilling & production services company. Together, they will be exploring the future technology and exploration trends and sustainability of long term production and resources.

"I am thrilled to be participating as a joint keynote speaker and panelist mediator for the OSEA2014 International Conference," says Mr. Eberhart. "As the oil and gas industry in Singapore continues to experience growth, the industry needs to be prepared for the opportunities and challenges that growth inevitably brings. I look forward to exploring industry trends and how they will impact businesses."

The Joint Case Study will unveil Davide Scotti, Behavioral Safety Manager of Saipem and Quinten de Bruine, Head HSE of Vroon. Both speakers will converse on "Leadership in Safety" and the aspects of the world-class cultural change programme created by an EPIC contractor and successfully adopted by a global marine organisation. Mr. Scotti also emphasises the importance of effective safety leadership, impactful communication and workforce engagement, which are the key ingredients of a successful behavioural and cultural change programme, which will be discussed in the case study.

Commenting on their topic, both Mr. de Bruine and Mr. Scotti are of the opinion that "Safety is important in every aspect of operations in the Oil & Gas industry - be it in exploration, processing or even transporting the final products and a safety culture implemented in the workplace should continue to evolve with changes in the industry. Vroon and Saipem work closely to further improve the safety culture on board by the innovative and heart touching 'Leaders in Safety' programme. We are delighted to be sharing our experience and expertise in the programme with delegates at the OSEA2014 International Conference."
