This paper examines the safety trends influencing and shaping the oil and gas industry. From rising local content requirements to increasing shortage of skilled workers, rise in unconventional Oil and Gas to an increasing number of frontier oil producing countries, the growing role of Operational Excellence and the most common causes of incidents in the Oil and Gas sector, this paper will discuss facts, figures and case studies from around the world. The paper was developed using secondary research based on industry reports such as the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers' IOGP Annual Safety Performance Indicators report to provide an analysis of fatal incident rates, total recordable injury rate, and lost time injury frequency. The research also referred to country profiles published by the US Energy Information Administration EIA including energy outlooks, analyses and projections. Information was culled from annual reports of international oil companies, technical papers published by the Society of Petroleum Engineers SPE as well as white papers by industry leaders, think tank groups and consulting firms.
