A consortium led by Antonio Cailao president and CEO of the Philippine National Oil will be meeting to discuss the implementation of secure complex Oil and Gas Infrastructure and investments into in the technical, physical and technological disciplines with representatives from over fifty leading organisations from the APAC region such as Santos, Petro Energy Resources and Pakistan Petroleum.

The key discussion points will be protecting onshore/offshore infrastructure, new developments in Offshore Energy Vessels, meeting the needs of deepwater & ultra deepwater drilling & production, utilizing digital oil field information for asset improvement and clean energy and sustainability.

The expansion in shipping routes from Asia to Europe and the US has just been given the green signal to try and combat a 39% drop in traffic through 2009. But the security of this depleting commodity stretches far beyond protecting from maritime attack.

David Bannister, program director, said: “The industry is faced with ever more dangerous extraction methods as the ‘easy oil’ stocks are used. Faced with labor strikes, political instability and production delays security strategies must be put in place as global business and power needs does not break.”
