Safety and environmental protection are key concerns in the global oil and gas industry, where any accident can have major implications in terms of environmental impact, human life, cost and reputation. This means safeguarding the integrity of structures, equipment and transportation vessels, and putting in place rigorous systems to manage health and safety.
At the same time, oil companies and traders need to be certain of the quality of their product and ensure its value is preserved.
