“Many organisations have placed Operational Risk at the top of their agenda due to recent incidents and are looking ways to monitor their risk through reporting and compliance. Petrotechnics offer something uniquely different; we work with our clients to manage risk, not only report on risk. Petrotechnics deliver control over the risk an organisation is carrying by closing the loop on the work execution process. The result being that we truly have the ability to change how the industry operates and to make a difference. Petrotechnics is significantly changing how organisations carry out their operations, enabling them to do so in a safer and more efficient way and I am looking forward to being part of that”.
