Why You Should Attend

5th Annual Anti-Corruption & Compliance for the Oil, Gas and Extractives Industries

The legal and reputational risks companies operating in the Oil & Gas and Extractive Industries are marginally growing. Considering the ever stricter  and complex business regulations from the relevant authorities, the increasing pressure from regulators, enforcement agencies, civil society and the media, a corporation needs to manage not only itself but even more its collaborators. That includes any transactions with governments, national oil companies, joint ventures, operating companies and suppliers. As research indicates, these intermediaries and subsidiaries are responsible for the risk (from 85%) and usually those are the cause of legal prosecutions and investigations as oppose to companies themselves. Risk is even higher when the projects take place in high risk jurisdictions.

 

This exclusive marcus evans conference will equip the industry professionals with the skills and insights necessary in order to build a robust, global compliance programme that is successfully implemented internally and by their counterparts to minimise the risk of corrupt activities associated with the company’s name. Practical tools and methods for compliance to achieve an effective risk management, due diligence and training will be presented by the top leaders and practitioners in this industries.
