Petrotechnics chief to spotlight PSM issues
Abu Dhabi, September 14, 2011
Petrotechnics, a leader in providing frontline work execution solutions to hazardous industries, will discuss process safety management (PSM) best practices at an upcoming oil and gas summit in Abu Dhabi.
The third annual Process Safety Management Summit will be held in the UAE capital from Sept 18 to 21.
As the creator of the Sentinel PRO system, Petrotechnics’ involvement will prove a vital contribution to the industry-led event. The company is also an associate sponsor of the annual event.
PSM is being implemented across the oil, gas and petrochemical industries in the Middle East to ensure risk control and prevent hazardous accidents, said Petrotechnics CEO Phil Murray, who will be a key speaker at the summit.
Murray will discuss how technology can be used to embed PSM into operational processes in the region, demonstrate ways in which companies can manage their work activity and explain how capturing vital work metrics can provide an operational window on real-time frontline risks.
Murray pointed out that the Middle East offered a highly promising market and well-developed supporting infrastructure, but there was always scope for continued focus on ensuring the correct processes are in place across the region.
Petrotechnics CEO said its integrated safe system of work solution is already operational at multiple sites in the Gulf, including one of the world’s largest complexes of offshore platforms for a US major based in Qatar.
“This conference will present an excellent opportunity to exchange initiatives and information and I am looking forward to the chance to share my knowledge, providing support and solutions to current and prospective customers, while meeting with the key players from some of the industry’s leading companies,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
