Disruptions in operations In 2015, to assist the operator and contractor relationship and to avoid potential confusion regarding responsibilities and expectations of both parties, the IOGP/IPIECA Health Committee published a guideline document entitled Health Management contract guidelines for clients and contractors. The document provides guidance on:

  • health management system elements, requirements and deliverables;
  • establishing roles and responsibilities between contractor(s) and client/operator;
  • health aspects related to the pre-qualification, bidding and execution phase; and
  • promoting transparency and effective communication on health management in contracts.

This webinar will involve key speakers from a leading service contractor, Eugene Toukam, Schlumberger VP HSE for Europe and Africa and a major healthcare company, Simon Hawthorne, VP Legal, and UnitedHealthcare Global Medical, providing examples of real problems that can occur in the absence of such a strategic contract management plan. Finally, Dr. Alex Barbey, International Health Coordinator, Schlumberger Limited, who chaired the IOGP/IPIECA health taskforce which produced the guideline will explain how utilization of the guidelines can avoid the issues described and prevent a negative impact due to deficiencies in contract management.
