Technical Presentations & Videos

View webcast sample

FABIG organises 4 Technical Meetings per year on topics relevant to the challenges faced by the oil and gas industry. They are generally half-day events with presentations from invited industry experts. On occasions, FABIG also organises Technical Meetings in cooperation with partner organisations such as the SLPSG (Safety and Loss Prevention Subject Group of the Institution of Chemical Engineers), EPSC (European Process Safety Centre) and JOIFF (Joint Oil and Industry Fire Forum). For information on forthcoming Technical Meetings, visit the Events section of the website.

Technical presentations given at past meetings as well as video recordings (where available) are listed below (FABIG members can download/view them for free and non-members can contact us to purchase them.


We are currently experiencing issues with the video recordings of our Technical Meetings and have decided to move these to a new hosting solution. In the meantime, please contact us if you wish to view specific videos of presentations as we will be able to provide you with access to these. We expect this issue to be resolved within the next few weeks.
