Managing Non-Technical Risks – MNTR


This is a full-venue event. Training tools, Certificates and refreshments will be provided. Should you be interested in the online version or your in-house delivery? Please contact us.





Non-technical or societal risks have become the primary source of business delays and budget overruns in the oil and gas industry. Non-technical risks typically are related to political, regulatory, health, safety, security, environmental, and social issues. Mitigation requires good external awareness and stakeholder engagement skills and technical and commercial teams’ willingness to work closely together with the non-technical disciplines to accommodate non-technical perspectives in project designs and plans.
