Oil and Gas UK has issued a call for people wishing to make a presentation for an event marking 30 years since the Piper Alpha tragedy.
The industry body is hosting “Safety 30” on 5-6 June to mark the legacy in offshore safety culture since the incident in 1988.
It will focus on how Piper Alpha has shaped current offshore operations, with strides in health and safety.
A submission deadline of March 2 has been set for the call for abstracts.
167 people were killed in the explosion and resulting oil and gas fires which destroyed the platform.
The Safety 30 event will also feature a talk from Lord Cullen, who chaired the public inquiry into the incident.
