Accident statistics for Fixed Offshore Units on the UK Continental Shelf 1980 - 2003
The main objective of the project is to obtain complete statistics (i.e. accident frequencies) for accidents and incidents having occurred on fixed units engaged in the oil and gas exploration and exploitation on the UKCS in the period 1980-2003. This is published both as a written report and an associated spreadsheet in the MS Excel format listing individually the coding and text for each incident.
Fixed units in this project are defined as comprising all bottom-fixed structures, but excluding TLPs, FPSOs, FSUs and production jackups even though they are "fixed" during their production phase and are classified as "fixed installations" by the HSE under the Safety Case Regulations.
