Together with other IADC members, STAR joined a successful HSE & Sustainability Conference & Exhibition at the Apollo Hotel in Amsterdam. Per Anders Koien (CEO) and John Inge Røtting (CCO) engaged in interesting conversations on the drilling industry’s challenges and trends.

With the headline HSE and Sustainability, the conference spanned over two fully packed days with renowned speakers from participating companies. The interactive sessions touched upon highly relevant topics like “Managing Carbon Footprint,” Energy Efficiency,” and Human Factors and Human Performance.” The drilling industry has an important role to play and is motivated to be part of the solution in reducing emissions and achieving Net Zero targets soon as possible. With the energy transition, the industry is furthermore also taking steps to increase transparency through several measures.

The STAR Enterprise Asset Management System (EAM) improves productivity. Through structured and optimized asset planning, operations, maintenance, and performance – including a comprehensive QHSE module and environmental initiatives. Nevertheless, despite successive innovative digital solutions, the future of work is human. Meeting the industry’s future challenges requires diverse talents. Thus, the IADC conference also brought together an engrossing workshop on the “Ability to Attract and Retain Talent” led by Evelyn MacLean-Quick, Workforce Energy Task Force Director at IOGP (link). Productive discussions took place on how the workforce is a key component to the industry staying safe and accelerating the environmental pace.
