Three ways oil and gas operators can close their most prominent cybersecurity blind spot
9 June 2020

Like all critical industries, oil and gas operations make prime targets for cyber threats of all kinds. Yet many management and operational executives can feel cybersecurity is not their responsibility, or they lack the charter, the expertise, and the tools to counter the threats. Together, those attitudes can cause a big blind spot vulnerability that hackers can exploit successfully. This paper provides information on three ways to close it.

Building Integrity into the Pipeline Ecosystem with Operator Qualification
5 February 2020

A quick look at the major causes of midstream pipeline incidents in 2018 reveals an interesting picture. While material/weld/equipment failures accounted for more than 35% of incidents, the major cause for 11.7% of incidents was incorrect operation measures. These figures rightly underline the importance of establishing and maintaining a strong operator qualification (OQ) and safety orientation program for workers. This white paper will discuss:

• The current landscape of pipeline operations

• Regulations and qualifications to know

• How to orchestrate a successful OQ program.
