10:00 AM REGIONAL TRAILBLAZER PRESENTATION: Overcoming offshore accidents across mobile and stationary platforms by implementing pipeline-leak detection systems to improve safety & productivity by 60%
Focus: An overturned oil tanker exploded in Nigeria in January 2019, killing many of the dozens of people who were scooping up its leaking fuel. Hundreds of people have died in similar accidents in recent years in Nigeria, Africa’s largest oil producer, as impoverished people risk their lives to collect fuel leaking from pipelines on and offshore facilities.
Key question: What are the key aspects to obtain an overview of emerging preparedness response in oil & gas in Africa?
• What are the biggest challenges & opportunity of pipeline-leak detection technologies?
• How far is the African market in implementing new technologies?
• What solutions exist on the African HSSE market?
