Piper 25 Conference in Aberdeen, 18-20 June 2013

Graham Marshall - Thursday, March 28, 2013

Oil and Gas UK are holding a major offshore safety conference to mark the 25th anniversary of the Piper Alpha disaster.

Lord Cullen - who chaired the public inquiry into the disaster - has been confirmed as the keynote speaker, and HSE's Judith Hackitt and Steve Walker will also participate.

The Piper 25 Conference is designed to reflect, review, reinforce and re-energize safety efforts in the oil industry.

The three-day event is to be held at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre from 18 to 20 June 2013.

It is aimed at bringing together people from across the oil and gas industry to reflect on the lessons learnt from the tragedy, review how far offshore safety has evolved since and to reinforce industry commitment to continuous improvement.

With Piper Alpha as a central theme, the conference will also explore broader safety issues and will feature high profile international speakers from a diverse range of backgrounds.

The full conference agenda will be announced in due course with the three days comprising of both plenary and parallel sessions allowing delegates to tailor their individual programmes to their own areas of expertise and interest.

Lord Cullen's report made 106 recommendations which have since transformed the way safety is managed offshore - to the point where the UK regime is now regarded as a global exemplar.
