This paper aims at developing a methodology capable of controlling accidents and failures in oil and gas production activities.
Fuzzy analysis that is based on fuzzy linguistics, rule matrix, rule structures, and system operating rules is utilised. Fuzzy methodology is applied to develop a safety control model for the prevention of accidents and failures in oil and gas production activity offshore platforms.
The model is demonstrated with a case study, thereby suggesting the feasibility of the applied approach in practical cases.
Primarily, the study aims to guarantee safety. Also uncertainties and imprecision that commonly characterize safety measurement systems are tracked. The time‐consuming activity in measurement and the requirement of lots of specific information about the process is avoided.
The results from the study provide valuable baseline information for future research investigating how safety of oil platforms is affected by some factors.
