Global Oil Companies (GOC) IA Forum 2020

Oil & Gas industry has been going through unprecedented and dynamic changes in the market and the technological landscape, significantly affecting the risk outlook. A collaborative effort from Internal Audit functions of the leading Energy / Oil & Gas Companies in the world to learn from each other and advance to the future as one team will be a big step in this direction. 

Global Oil Companies (GOC) IA Forum, formed by ADNOC aims to provide structured platform for dialogue and debate on innovative internal audit practices. ADNOC’s objective is to establish a focused and easy channel of communication between the Internal Audit functions and to enable an open discussion while respecting each other's confidentiality and Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) interests.
