About this event

The talk will step through the risk assessment process from scoping and setting the context through identification, analysis and evaluation to communicating / reporting results.

It is planned that the talk will be undertaken in an open and discursive manner so that those attending can ask questions, contribute ideas and share from their own experiences.

With the change in oil price the presentation will consider the pressures this is posing and how as risk practitioners' we may undertake Quantitative Risk Assessments (QRA) more efficiently and how we may deliver greater value out of our QRA effort.

It is recognised that many know the risk process well. This will help structure the communication and discussion around the application of tools, advanced methods and consideration of efficiency so all can understand and contribute.

Presented by
Mark Boult BA, MA, FIChemE, FIRM, Director, DNV GL.
