Event Overview

Pipeline Security Forum 2015 - Securing oil and gas pipeline infrastructure

There are currently over 3,500,000 km of pipelines transporting hydrocarbons – the major source of primary energy - around the world. Moreover, according to the report published by P&G in 2014 there are over 180,000 km of pipelines planned or under construction globally. Even though they are considered as the most efficient way to transport oil and gas, pipelines are not only subject to natural disasters but also attractive as ‘soft targets’ for criminals and terrorists.

The Colombian ‘Cañon Limon’ petroleum pipeline is colloquially known as ‘the Flute’ due to the numerous holes left on it by the series of guerrilla attacks. In 2013 in Algeria, two guards protecting a pipeline which crosses the northern part of the country were killed by a gunman; only two weeks after an attack on an Algerian gas complex left 37 hostages dead. However militant attacks are not the only threat that security professionals face each day. Political tensions such as those which led to the bombing of a natural gas pipeline in Ukraine that runs from Arctic Russia to the border of Slovakia cause the wide spread security concerns. Therefore securing pipelines from third-party damage is a major challenge for the energy industry. Particularly vulnerable are pipeline networks which spread over remote and hostile territories, where the costs of conventional monitoring methods are too high to implement.  

The Pipeline Security Forum 2015 will allow delegates to share intelligence with other senior level experts involved in the protection of oil and gas pipeline infrastructure and relevant Governmental bodies on how to overcome the challenges of securing transnational pipelines, bridge the gap between reactive and proactive approaches, implement new techniques to conduct effective incident investigations, reduce costs, define and defend security budgets and implement the latest technology into security planning, to name a few.

National Security & Resilience Conference 2016

Organisational security and resilience in today’s climate of extreme threats

National Security and Resilience combines national security needs with an in-depth understanding of the design and implementation of resilience solutions. London sits at the epicentre of knowledge and resilience and is recognised globally as a centre of excellence, notably in national security and resilience.

The NS&R Conference will take place on 8th-9th November in the heart of London, bringing together a wealth of expertise which will entertain, inform and expand understanding. The leading conference programme is matched by its exceptional cast of speakers from across government and industry for one of the best programmes discussing organisational security and resilience.

The importance of organisational resilience

Global turbulence is expected. Competition, instability and uncertainty are constants in a changing world. Organisations face an unprecedented and growing number of potential disruptions to the status quo and the best laid strategic plans. As history repeats itself, prominent organisations will fail unless modern risk management and governance models incorporate scalable resilience metrics.

To survive and prosper in this new environment of heightened uncertainty and change, organisations must move past traditional risk and governance models and focus instead on resilience. Resilience applies at all levels: national, regional, organisational and corporate.

The NS&R Conference will deliver the latest issues and threats facing government departments/agencies, corporations and businesses, and thought provoking discussions on strategies and innovations to ensure you and your organisation meet these changing challenges.
