m         LOOKING AHEAD TO 2020 AND BEYOND: We live in an exciting time for oil and gas, where companies are constantly pushing the limits of engineering and design to maximize production through deeper wells and taller offshore rigs, longer pipelines, focus on gas, bigger refineries, larger LNG Terminals.
While the need for a compliance culture has been established, it is obvious that more can and still needs to be done to improve overall technical and safety levels in the oil and gas industry. Companies now understand that in-depth reporting and auditing, a comprehensive safety plan and interactive hands-on training programs are essential to business growth while instilling a culture of compliance.
The Authors, in this book besides providing detailed insights on the Regulatory Audits and Compliances in India, have collated a list of checklists that can be used by both, Auditors and the Oil and Gas industry to improve on the process adherence and to make the activities safe to all the stakeholders.
