The oil and gas industry plays an important role in the thriving global economy. They remain the main source of energy in both developed and developing countries. Unsurprisingly, the oil and gas industry is the most attractive target for growing global terrorism and piracy. The threat of theft and sabotage attacks lurks throughout the oil and gas industry’s supply chain. The main problem seems to be in the transfer process.
Attacks like these in the Somali seas on one of the tankers could increase the cost of transporting oil and lead to higher end-user prices. Any significant act of sabotage at refineries or offshore platforms will result in the complete cessation or loss of production of the final product.
The entire supply chain in the oil and gas industry, from sources, refineries and pipelines to tankers, can be disrupted by the following security threats.
- Internal sabotage
- Organized crime
- Political protest
- Transnational hostilities
Therefore, this industry needs a specialized and sophisticated approach to security needs and we at UNITED SECURITY are experienced and fully equipped to provide effective security services.
