The  Deepwater Horizon/Macondo in the spring of 2010, and the West Atlas/Montara in August 2009, disasters have called for a paradigm shift in global attitudes and requirements relating to safety and environmental protection in offshore petroleum activities. Consequently, a challenging range of expectations are now being proposed for better coordination of global regulatory efforts in the petroleum industry, establishment of the highest safety standards across onshore and offshore borders and promotion of a generally more efficient coordination of national safety authorities’ supervisory regimes in order to promote health, safety and environment in the industry.

On behalf of the International Regulators’ Forum, IRF, the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) will host an extraordinary safety summit conference in Stavanger, Norway, on 4 and 5 October 2011.

Key issues at the conference will include an update on the progress of four of the five IRF priority areas above. A welcome evening for all participants will also be organized on Monday 3 October. A program committee is currently preparing the detailed conference program.
