Technical Report Focuses on Offshore E&P Safety-Related Data
SPE released a new technical report last month, “Assessing the Processes, Tools, and Value of Sharing and Learning from Offshore E&P Safety-Related Data” (SPE-182847-TR).
The report was written by a steering committee of subject matter experts (SMEs) with industry input from an SPE summit held April 2016 in Houston as well as members from SPE online communities. The report is based on discussions and conclusions from the summit and is intended to provide guidance on an industry-wide safety management data sharing program. The overall objective of the effort is to: a) eliminate or reduce risk of harm through industry sharing of data; b) to generate information that builds knowledge, understanding, and ownership; and c) to disseminate recommended corrective actions to prevent a reoccurrence. It was approved by the SPE Board of Directors in September 2016.
Four Generations of Fire- and Blast-Resistant Walls on Offshore Installations
Four types of fire- and blast-resistant walls for offshore installations are assessed, including internal vs. external fire and blast walls.
Passive-Fire-Protection Optimization in Offshore Topside Structures
Applying sufficient passive fire protection (PFP) on topside structural-steel members is critical. Simplified and conservative approaches are available to estimate the extent and amount of PFP necessary.
Three-Sided Passive Fire Protection on Steel-Beam Decks for Offshore Installations
