Risk management at energy and natural resources companies: Building a risk-aware culture 

Energy and natural resources (ENR) companies are challenged by an ever-growing array of threats and opportunities that grow more complex every day.

Challenges include: entering more and more remote regions in the world to search for natural resources, often in fragile countries where the state is weak and the environment is under threat; labor relations may be fraught with tension in some parts of the world; ever-changing regulatory and compliance pressures; financial and production risks; and public opinion is often hostile to ENR companies. However, technology is creating immense opportunities to develop oil and gas fields, in previously unconquerable areas.


The worldwide survey* of senior executives in this industry found that the management of these risks was not advancing as fast as the threats faced and ENR companies were falling short in a number of important areas.
