Why attend the 2019 Petroleum and Natural Gas (PNG) CE/T Symposium?

Consider the need for higher education, training and competency standards in PNG:

  • Lack of quality training is the #1 cause for non-productive time (NPT) - billions of dollars of loss per year. Service companies must comply with a mandatory requirement for SEMS (30CFR, 250); API Spec Q1, and API Spec Q2, among others.
  • Lack of quality training is the #2 cause for all incident investigations for upstream services.
  • Lack of quality training is the #1 concern as the industry recovers. 2014 to Present - industry has experienced a 300,000 reduction in its workforce.
  • Improving training ranks among the top two opportunities for improving efficiencies and reducing costs.
  • Training is mandated by operators internationally.
