Infographic: Asset Integrity / HSE Success Wheel
Since 1965, there have been a host of major offshore incidents ending in numerous fatalities, destruction of assets, environmental chaos and legal battles costing billions of dollars. 2010’s Macondo blowout only served to heighten the crucial importance of offshore safety procedures to the oil and gas sector.
In this interactive infographic, we outline the 24 essential criteria that need to form part of a winning and disaster-proof AIM/HSE programme.
Current Trends in Offshore Safety
In preparation for Oil and Gas iQ’s Offshore Safety Summit 2012, offshore safety professionals were invited to complete a short survey to assess the current trends and challenges.

Major Disasters Offshore: What is the impact of Situational Awareness?
Dr Kathryn Mearns, Senior Lecturer at the University of Aberdeen, joins Oil & Gas IQ to discuss her paper on situational awareness in offshore crews. She summarises the background, the concept, the research and the findings, before discussing the lessons operators can potentially take away from it. She also offers her opinion on the offshore industry with regard to safety and the human factors involved. The interview closes with a discussion on the other studies that Dr Mearns has been involved with in the offshore industry, and areas of the oil and gas industry she would like to explore in the future.

New Report: Never Say Never Again
By Derek Park, Oil & Gas iQ
On the evening of 6th July 1988, Piper Alpha exploded and 167 people lost their lives. The subsequent Cullen enquiry was seen as a watershed for UK offshore safety and integrity.
In April 2010, Deepwater Horizon suffered a blowout and eleven people died, unleashing an oil slick of up to 4.9 million barrels over an area of 68,000 square miles. Both these tragedies made headlines around the world and have become etched into our industry brains. The reaction from governments and public was ‘never again’ but can government or industry say with any certainty that these tragedies will not be repeated?
48.6 per cent oil and gas professionals say Human Factors are the biggest challenge in offshore safety
Ahead of the Offshore Safety Summit 2012, the Oil & Gas iQ team conducted an extensive industry survey on current trends in offshore safety. One of the key findings summarised in the report now available is that following recent disasters (e.g. Macondo) 78% of those survey feel there is increased pressure on oil and gas operators to adopt and/or comply with HSE policies. “Perhaps surprisingly, most people think that the biggest challenge regarding offshore safety is the human factor, with 48.6 per cent of those polled citing this as their number one concern”
