Virtual SPE International Conference and Exhibition on Health, Safety, Environment, and Sustainability

July 27 - July 31

Generating Pride and Enabling Engagement

Chaired by Jose Cotello, Ecopetrol, the 2020 SPE International Conference and Exhibition on Health, Safety, Environment, and Sustainability, themed “Generating Pride and Enabling Engagement,” gathers E&P stakeholders to discuss the HSE systems and procedures that will bring about changes and lead to the industry’s continued success.

IOGP is an endorsing partner of the SPE International Conference and Exhibition on HSE & Sustainability virtual event

IOGP is proud to be an endorsing partner of the event and will contribute to several plenary, conference and technical sessions.
The event, initially scheduled for earlier this year, will now be a virtual event, taking place 27–31 July.

With the evolving impacts of COVID-19 felt around the globe, the health and safety of all participants was at the forefront of the decision to transition from an in-person event to a digital experience using a sophisticated, interactive platform.

During the five-day event top industry executives and leaders will present their strategies and perspectives through plenaries and panels, papers and technical sessions—all live with Q&As. These sessions will be held in real-time and accessible on-demand for 90 days.

The event includes a virtual exhibition to allow attendees to engage with exhibiting organizations and their technologies. A virtual lounge will provide a platform to network and build strategic partnerships with exploration and production professionals from around the world.
