LOG904-137 Health, safety and environment for the offshore oil and gas industry
The management of risk in the offshore and oil gas industry has been an important issue for at least the last two decades. On top of the health and safety considerations there are now stricter regulations regarding environmental protection. This short seminar shall provide the students with knowledge and understanding of the hazards that apply to offshore installations and ways to manage them. Basic topics in risk analysis and risk management will be presented. The main emphasis is on applications from the offshore oil and gas industry. The industry is involved in a global supply-chain that includes for example transportation, inventory control, handling of materials and parts, import/export facilitation and information technology. Thus, risks to both offshore installations and the whole supply chain will be investigated by using risk-based approaches. Relevant regulations and guidelines will be discussed focusing on national (Norwegian) and international (UK and US) legislation. Environmental regulations will be presented in more depth, focusing on topics e.g. emissions that have not been studied much in the literature.
Software to perform quantitative risk analysis and risk management will also be presented.
