OGV Energy welcomes you to our OGV Community event for June, where we will be exploring how the asset integrity sector has progressed to harness new technologies and facilitate safer work environments.
The energy sector is a highly regulated industry with ageing assets, complex technologies and a risk-averse culture, with a high demand for optimised Asset Integrity Management solutions. Integrity management strategies and technologies which minimise risk, give operators clarity and achieve operational excellence in a cost-effective way are therefore imperative.
In this panel session, we will look into how strategic asset integrity management is evolving through the harnessing of new technologies and what new thinking is being employed to optimise asset value for the future of our infrastructure.
This event will provide you with the opportunity to:
• Gain insight into how the Asset Integrity sector is evolving and working towards safer and more efficient working environments.
• Learn about new technologies and strategies that can be employed to protect workers and optimise asset management.
• Hear the latest thinking from industry experts.
• Interact with Assent Integrity professionals.
• Network with peers in the Asset Integrity sector.
