A step by step guide to gaining competitive advantages for projects and operations:

From the authors of Improving Sustainability through Reasonable Risk and Crisis Management (2007) and The Long Shadow of Human‐Generated Geohazards: Risks and Crises (2016), in conjunction with the Managing Risks across the Mining and Oil & Gas Lifecycle conference to be held at Imperial College London, a course beneficial for all who have to:

  • design,
  • permit,
  • construct,
  • operate,
  • insure and perhaps
  • close a geo-environmental facility in the mining and oil&gas arena.

A step by step guide to gaining competitive advantages for projects and operations

Subject:

A step by step guide to gaining competitive advantages for projects and operations is a hands-on exercise based on a real-life case history of a 60Mm3 dry asbestos tailings dump’s environmental rehabilitation at the Balangero Asbestos Mine (N-W Italy). The competitive bid for the project, was won by an engineering group supported by step by step disciplined risk assessments. Thus it was demonstrated that including quantitative risk assessment through the design of a project, from cradle to delivery and including risk driven maintenance concepts brought value and a leading edge to the proponents with great benefit to society at large.

Delivery method:

Together we will work through all the phases of the approach (based on the ORE methodology -Optimum Risk Estimates- ©Oboni Riskope Associates Inc.) including:

  • System definition
  • Success/failure criteria. Objectives Hierarchy, constrained objectives.
  • Alternatives generation
  • Data
  • Probabilistic estimates
  • Hazards and multi-dimensional consequences analyses
  • Risks &Risk tolerances
  • Dashboards
  • Recommendations and Condition of validity.
  • Decision-making (alternative selection, mitigation, resilience enhancements, etc.)
  • Actions (includes communication)
  • Back to the start: monitoring, new data, etc.

Registration:

Important additional information

Special focus:

We will look at all technical aspects as well as “soft-issues” related to the definition of criteria, risk communication, definition of tolerance, possibly working out some role-plays using decision-makers and board members archetypes.

No special requirements:

There is no need for participants to be conversant in probabilities or statistics and there will be no “theory” or “maths” discussions unless the majority of the delegates requests these themes to be explored a bit more.

Who should participate:

This course is for all who have to design, permit, construct, operate, insure and perhaps close a geo-environmental facility of any kind, but also, more specifically waste rock/tailings dump, or spent heap leach pads in the XXI century.

Take aways:

Upon completion, participants will be better equipped to manage complex geotechnical/ geological projects, in accordance with current best management procedures, including:

  • comprehensive consideration of hazards,

  • probabilities of failure,

  • consequence quantification, and most importantly,

  • implementation of mitigation measures to reduce cost and ensure safety.
