With further development of the Belt and Road strategy and more Chinese petroleum & petrochemical enterprises participating in international projects, there will be more challenges. For international projects that are different from domestic ones, Chinese petroleum & petrochemical enterprises are going to face more interested parties, such as the owner, investors, local government, social and non-governmental organizations. All organizations have their own opinions and expectations on HSE. As the owner and project contractor, Chinese petroleum & petrochemical enterprises need to deal with complaints and meet requirements from all parties; this is very challenging for Chinese petroleum & petrochemical enterprises in initial stage. As Mr. Jerome Malassigne put it in his speech, “First of all, we need to meet basic international standard of HSE management system. Secondly, we need to meet special and complicated HSE management standards, especially environment risk management. At last, we need to meet those special requirements from laborer rights and interests and social benefits.” Besides those external challenges, Chinese petroleum & petrochemical enterprises also face another difficulty, that is looking for reliable sub-contractors for HSE management.

There will be lots of bad influences if above mentioned challenges cannot be well solved, such as major accident, huge compensation, bad reputation and losing new opportunities. On the contrary, good HSE management can guarantee smooth progress of projects and also become an important competitive edge of enterprises.
