Oil and Gas Event in Aberdeen


A key event which puts the focus on hazard and operability (HAZOP) in the oil and gas industry is taking place in Aberdeen.

The HAZOP course, organised by AFBE-UK Scotland, is to be held in the Braeriach Room at the Shell Woodbank Centre, North Deeside Road in Cults on Saturday, October 21 (10am-2am). The event is free to attend but registration is required.

Course trainer Kasi Usani is a chartered safety and risk engineer with experience of projects in the UK, the Middle East and South America. He is currently working with an oil major and was previously a lead technical safety engineer with an international engineering contractor.

Delegates will receive hands-on training from experienced industry experts and discover how to plan and prepare for HAZOP projects.

AFBE-UK Scotland is the Aberdeen-based group of a not-for-profit organisation which encourages young people, particularly those of black and minority ethnic (BME) origin, to consider a career in engineering.

Ollie Folayan, chairman at AFBE-UK Scotland, said: “We're delighted to again be running this course. It was popular last time and we would encourage those that wish to find out more about this area of the oil and gas industry to register as soon as possible.”

In addition, AFBE-Scotland is running a Real Projects event on investment at the New Kings Building (NK3), University of Aberdeen, on Thursday, October 26. Investment blogger Daniel Chew will give a presentation – Investing The Right Way – between 6.30pm and 8pm. The event is free but registration is required.

AFBE-UK Scotland runs around 20 events annually and has helped more than 600 pupils and students via its three main programmes – Transition, NextGen and Real Projects – since 2011.
