  2. 2. Pre-Conference Workshops Wednesday 13th October 2010 Workshop A: 09:00 - 12:00 Methods for Dealing with Anti - Bribery and Corruption Risks in the Oil and Gas Sector This practical workshop will discuss in detail what good anti-bribery and corruption (AB&C) compliance entails in direct relation to the UK Bribery Act 2010. Arguably the most important aspect of this law is the ‘corporate offence’ of failing to prevent a bribe being paid. This is a strict liability offence and would hold a corporate liable for any corrupt acts committed on its behalf by either employees or third parties. However, the Bribery Act provides a defence if a corporate can show that it has ‘adequate procedures’ in place to stop the activity. The facilitators will utilise an interactive case study and open discussion to illustrate some of the potential AB&C risks and pitfalls facing O&G companies and methods for dealing with them. You will: • Understand the full scope of the UK Bribery Act, in particular the ‘corporate offence’ • Consider what good AB&C compliance practice might entail to support ‘adequate procedures’ • Discuss AB&C risks faced by oil and gas companies in various jurisdictions • Assess the practical implications of implementing AB&C compliance procedures across geographies • Appreciate the impact of the new UK Bribery Act on the oil and gas industry via the use of an interactive case study Trevor Wiles, Director, Investigations & Compliance Team, KPMG LLP Brent McDaniel, UK Head of Anti-Bribery & Corruption Team, KPMG LLP Workshop B: 13:00 - 16:00 Building a Modern, Effective Compliance Programme within an Oil and Gas Company With the introduction of the UK Bribery Act and increasingly aggressive FCPA enforcement activity, it is clear that oil and gas companies must take note of the new anti-corruption environment in which they are expected to work. However, there is still some confusion regarding the understanding of the new legislation and a lack of clarity about what exactly oil and gas companies are required to do in order to prove that they have ‘adequate procedures’ in place as stipulated by the UK Bribery Act. This unique, interactive workshop will focus on all of the elements that need to be taken into consideration when building a modern compliance programme. Tailored to those experts working within the oil and gas industry, this operator led workshop will delve into the most important aspects of building a sound compliance programme that will ensure you are up-to-date and protecting your organisation against the latest legislation, across multiple jurisdictions. This workshop will be addressed in two parts: (1) Elements of a Compliance Programme (2) How to Establish an Anti-Corruption Introduction: Compliance Programme - Role players Working through the fundamentals of your - Compliance objectives - Compliance structure compliance and anti-corruption strategy - Role of compliance function • Carrying out an assessment of your business operations - Duties of the compliance officer • Legal compliance risk workshops • Development of your programme The Compliance Process - Legislation • Policy - Policies required • Risk Management Process - Controls including due diligence checklists, - Risk identification conflicts of interest, compliance moments, - Risk assessment updates, registers, communication - Risk mitigation channels, record keeping - Monitoring - Education - Reporting - Monitoring • Training - Certification process - Reporting Nizam Joosub, Compliance Manager, Sasol Who will attend? • Vice Presidents - International Contracts • Compliance Counsel • Private practice lawyers • Consultancies and Directors of: - Business Conduct • General Manager – specialising in: & Accounting Firms: - Corporate Responsibility • General Counsel Contracts and Compliance - Corporate Governance - Investigations & Forensic - Corporate Compliance • Head of Governance • Group Legal Manager - International Regulation - Transactions - Legal Affairs • Legal Counsel • Corruption Risk Manager & Compliance - Risk Management - Policy & Governance - Oil & Gas Litigation - Investigations Telephone: Fax: Email: Visit: +44 (0)20 7368 9300 +44 (0)20 7368 9301

Any number of areas within an organisation are trying to tackle the issue; the compliance and risk management functions, the finance team, governance and control, internal audit as well as the oversight that the Board needs to satisfy shareholders and regulators. To help clients pull together this potentially disparate activity, KPMG’s Advisory practice has gathered together its risk specialists - be they risk management professionals, fraud investigators, regulatory experts, technology professionals or internal auditors - into one team. Our aim is to help clients integrate their entire risk agenda and navigate the emerging risks; be they increasing commercial pressures from shareholders or challenges from regulators. This overall approach is enhanced by specialist sector teams who are not only able to provide broad business risk strategy advice and management but also specific sector and regulatory guidance.
