The 4th Gulf and Middle East Oil & Gas Security Summit returns in 2015 to provide a fully comprehensive platform for oil and gas security experts operating in the MENA region. This edition of the Summit will be held in Dubai on 18th-19th May, 2015. Much of the Middle East is in turmoil at present; the wars in Iraq and Syria have escalated to a regional war, with IS posing significant challenges to stability of neighbouring states and to the oil and gas industry globally. In October 2014, thirty oil workers and security personnel were murdered by IS activist at an oil field in Syria, in the same month al-Qaeda Chiefs instructed fighters to sabotage tankers passing through Gibraltar, the Strait of Hormuz, between Oman and Iran, and parts of Egypt. It is clear that oil and gas companies are currently facing a higher threat of terrorism in this region that they have in recent years.

Excellent evacuation planning is critical at this time, as is strong duty of care planning in high risk regions, and tailored communications strategies to prevent company-wide panic. Reports of kidnappings and missing foreign workers have increased in the last year, so too have attacks on critical pipelines infrastructure. These are some issues to be addressed at the 4th Middle East and Gulf Oil & Gas Security Summit.
This edition of the meeting will also address the current challenges facing both IT and physical security experts within oil and gas companies, namely, the challenges of integrating these functions and working in partnership for enhanced corporate security.
The third edition of this highly regarded Summit was chaired by the Group Head of HSSE for Danagas and the Senior Vice President Security & Safety, GDF SUEZ Global Gas & LNG. The two day Summit included presentations by high profile speakers from Chevron, Maersk Oil, GDF Suez, GE Oil and Gas, Transocean, Lukoil, Qatar Petroleum, ConocoPhillips, Kuwait Oil Company, Abu Dhabi National Energy Company, Baker Hughes and OSAC.
