The purpose of the NPF Risk Management Summit is sharing knowledge and experience about risk management. This annual conference has been held since 2015, targeting leaders and risk management experts in the petroleum industry. It provides a unique opportunity to hear from acknowledged experts representing academia, authorities, and different industries.

Send your abstract by 9th December.

Each year the Norwegian Petroleum Society (NPF) receives great ideas for topics for the next Summit. NPF uses these ideas to finalise the program. Therefore, interested speakers are now formally invited to submit an abstract (~300 words) describing the main ideas of their presentation. Risk management is a wide field, focusing both on opportunities and threats. Thus, a wide range of abstracts can be accepted. However, the NPF advises that abstracts should focus on one of the three preliminary main topics of this risk management summit, especially topics no. 2 and 3:

  • Outline of the future of the industry, and the operating parameters (“rammebetingelser”) of the industry.
  • Effective risk management in the petroleum industry.
  • Practical risk assessment tools and techniques.

Each speaker gets a presentation time of approximately 25 minutes. All presentations will be made available online for the conference attendees. Speakers with accepted abstracts will get 50% discount off conference fee. Papers are not required.

Conference language: English.
