In this region, we've seen a gradual shift in focus from the implementation of standard HSE programmes to the customisation, continuous assessment, and consolidation of the same programmes as per each corporate entity's requirements. The 7th edition of this event will provide an excellent opportunity for experts to discuss these issues and the associated challenges, both in regional and international contexts."
Barton Cahir, president and general manager for ExxonMobil Qatar, said: "ExxonMobil is a proud member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers, and a staunch supporter of its mission of collecting, disseminating, and exchanging technical knowledge related to the development and production of oil and gas resources. Our participation in this year's exhibition allows us the opportunity to share our own technical and professional competence, and to demonstrate the emphasis we place on safety, health and environmental protection in Qatar, and across our global business activities."
