Security is the most pressing concern for the oil and gas industry of the Central Asia and Caspian region at present. Globally, targeting of energy infrastructure is at an all-time high and the trend is regrettably increasing. The Central Asia and Caspian countries are blessed with an abundance of natural resources, and though secure compared to many other oil rich countries, there are a number of specific security challenges that have to be addressed by international and national oil companies in the region.
The Central Asia and Caspian Oil & Gas Security Forum 2014 will address counter-terrorism, theft prevention, pipeline and infrastructure protection, relations with the local community, maritime security, and cyber security. There will be a number of high profile security case studies focused on regions across Central Asia and the Caspian.
As a company, IRN has extensive experience in organising high-profile meetings and summits for the oil and gas, infrastructure, and security industries. In June 2013 we hosted the Oil & Gas Security Summit in London. This was attended by senior level representatives from TAQA, Baker Hughes, Bankers Petroleum Ltd., Betafence, BG Tunisia, CEPSA, Exxon Mobil, GDF Suez, Genel Energy, Husky Energy Inc, NCOC, Nexen Petroleum, OMV, Petrofac, Qatar Petroleum, Raytheon, Repsol, Rosneft, Shell International BV, Sonangol E&P, National Oilwell Varco, Statoil, Lockhed Martin, Tecpetrol, G4S, Subsea 7, Total E&P and many others.
The Central Asia and Caspian Oil & Gas Security Forum 2014 is the latest in IRN’s security portfolio. It will be a unique opportunity to hear international and regional oil companies speaking on security methods and technologies, and will ultimately assist delegates in enhancing their security planning in line with the threats in this region.
