OTC/Houston: To avoid major accidents, safety barriers are critical to stop accident pathways before they become serious, and they need to be treated accordingly. This has to be reflected in operations and ideally in regulations. If not, safety barriers which often address rare events might lose the everyday battle for attention among all the safety and production systems in daily use, leaving a company with fictional barriers and false sense of security.
Houston/Oslo: DNV has restructured its offshore classification rules for Mobile Offshore Units in order to improve transparency and enhance safety. “Our aim is to help the rig owner in the building process – to clearly show that the unit is constructed in compliance with reliability and safety standards. At the same time, yards can achieve improved efficiency and have the ability to document the safety level of alternative solutions,” says Erik Henriksen, Director for Mobile Offshore Units at DNV.

In the construction of a subsea project, one challenge is the long delivery time of large steel forgings used for key components. This is mainly due to compliance with oil companies’ individual requirements. DNV is now inviting the subsea industry to jointly obtain synergies by developing a best-practice approach. The aim is to reduce delivery time and production costs and improve material quality, thus reducing the risk throughout the supply chain.
