Compliance & Regulatory Services for the Energy Industry
Create a culture of regulatory compliance & performance
Successful regulatory compliance is vital to an efficiently functioning energy industry and a well-trained workforce. Yet, regulations may force the industry to transform. Two primary types of compliance – health, safety and environmental, and process, safety and risk management – demand the most attention. While they address different compliance issues (with some crossover) they raise very similar challenges , including:
- Increasingly complex and restrictive governmental regulations
- Increased production costs in order to comply with those regulations
- Time and resources to implement and adapt to new regulations
- Access to highly specialized expertise to keep pace with constantly evolving compliance requirements
And let’s not forget the potential for huge regulatory penalties and potential legal liability due to lack of compliance.
Clearly, the current energy, oil & gas landscape calls for carefully designed regulatory risk management and compliance solutions. And now is not the time or place for off-the-shelf products that may become obsolete before you even unwrap them.
