Despite a continued challenge presented by incidents related to dropped objects, their number has almost halved over the past four years. That reflects measures adopted by the industry.
Petoro aims to be a proactive partner in efforts to reduce the scale of personal injuries and undesirable incidents on the NCS. The company has paid special attention in recent years to measures for reducing major accident risk. To identify risk elements in the licences, a joint project pursued with ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil and Total has established best practice for preventing major accidents. Brainstorming took place during 2013 in 12 Statoil-operated licences to identify risk elements with a major accident potential. The work is continuing into 2014 with the goal of further operationalising this process.
