Creating a joined up approach to localisation across the whole value chain

10:30 - 11:30

Localisation is a calculation which needs to consider how far it is possible to localise a project over a certain time period and within the metrics of economic sustainability. Visions of localisation – what is both realistic and achievable – should coalesce between governments and their international investors.

Too often, IOC, contractor and development agency local skills and supply chain investments are disconnected. To improve the efficiency and effectiveness of localisation investments in country, further coordination is needed to implement a strategy that addresses the whole value chain of local industries.

This workshop will discuss solutions to maximising the impact of localisation investments. Specifically:

  • How to calculate realistic and achievable localisation targets within each country/project context
  • Improving collaboration and coordination among governments, IOCs, contractors and development agencies
  • How to effectively engage local communities and communicate opportunities in the direct and indirect workforce and supply chain
  • The potential of regional solutions or regionalisation
  • Supporting long term employment and business opportunities through developing transferable skills
  • Understanding the opportunities and limitations of local content legislation. Towards greater flexibility?
