The impact of recent downturns in the Energy Sector have had a drastic effect on all companies managing regulatory/compliance programs and day-to-day operational needs.

If you and your firm are facing ever-shrinking budgets and ever-increasing resource demands, rest assured that you are not alone. In fact, throughout the Energy Sector, personnel are now forced to wear multiple hats due to a downsized workforce. But, regulations, compliance requirements, and the need for incident readiness remain constant.

Companies must now establish priorities based on potential risk rather than actual need, pushing timelines and critical tasks out or even ignoring them altogether. More often than not, it’s the non-operational items that tend to fall to the bottom of the list – or disappear entirely.

Obstacles Companies Are Facing

As businesses work to minimize environmental impact and decrease their carbon footprint, they face challenges from unilateral nation-state actions, activist investor initiatives, lobbyist groups, and the public. Companies that don’t respond to these challenges face larger fines and increased scrutiny from regulatory agencies and key stakeholders.

Failing to respond to an incident effectively and responsibly can impact your company’s reputation in ways that damage your ability to conduct business and harm your relationships with the communities you serve.

Investing in incident management and regulatory compliance can be overwhelming, especially for small and mid-sized companies.
