Safety on Offshore Installations proceedings published

The proceedings from the recently sold-out Safety on Offshore Installations conference, held 30 November-1 December 1999, in London, have now been published.

The proceedings contain 28 papers, each addressing how companies have minimised the risks of working offshore, while responding to market pressures to reduce their operating costs. Topics include:

  • factors in risk decision making;

  • process integrity;

  • leaks;

  • dispersion;

  • ventilation and detection;

  • fires and fire protection;

  • explosions; and

  • structural response.

With experts drawn from a spectrum of international operators, government regulators, contractors, specialised consultants and research institutes, these proceedings provide the definitive guide to safety engineering offshore and will be of particular value to professionals involved in the preparation of safety cases for new and existing installations.

Readers can obtain a copy of the conference proceedings Safety on Offshore Installations (ERA Report 99-0808) at a cost of £125 (£110 for ERA Technical Services Scheme members).
