Exploring community investment and the Social License to Operate

15:15 - 16:15

Some operations, most notably onshore, face local opposition either at grassroots or regional government level. The industry has the ability to provide a hugely positive influence on local people and institutions should the companies look to utilise local skills in the workforce, develop local education capacity and embrace regional supply chains. A considerable factor is overcoming this opposition is making local people aware of the benefits the industry can bring.

This session looks to bring together regional governments from Tamaulipas, Velacruz, Tabasco, Campeche and Yucatán with the oil and gas community to discuss the role that the industry can play in the development of these states. Our panel will help Identify key areas for community investment from the IOC community which will be an important factor in overcoming local opposition.
