Presentations covered key topics: Regulatory requirements; What can risk assessment deliver?; Risk communication; Update from real projects; Induced seismicity/geomechanics; and Long-term risk management. Discussion was facilitated after the presentations with enthusiastic input from all participants.
Presentations and discussions showed the advancement of regulatory requirements. However, some concerns from the technical audience were raised which emphasised the need for researchers to be proactive and inform the regulators to ensure that the requirements set are adequate for emerging needs; and to ensure they apply adaptive approaches to allow for the iterative process of risk assessment, which was also highlighted in real project data."
