Accident statistics for Floating Offshore Units on the UK Continental Shelf 1980-2003

FABIG Members: Log-in to access all FABIG resources

SUMMARY

The main objective of the project is to obtain complete statistics (i.e. accident frequencies) for accidents and incidents having occurred on floating units engaged in the oil and gas activities on the UKCS in the period 1980-2003. Floating units in this project are defined as comprising semisubmersibles, jackups, ships and tension-leg platforms engaged in drilling, accommodation, production and storage. The latter two types are classified as "floating" installations although they are defined as "fixed installations" by the HSE under the Safety Case Regulations.

The results from this study will serve as a reference document for data to be used in future Risk Assessments of offshore floating units and furthermore, be a valuable reference document for UK Health & Safety Executive (HSE)/ Offshore Safety Division (OSD) when reviewing Safety Cases.

This report supersedes Research Report 095.

This report is superseded by RR567 which now contains additional data for the years 2004 and 2005.
