  • Emergency systems reliability and availability (RAM) studies
  • Escape, evacuation and rescue analysis, – safety integrity level
  • Safety integrity level (SIL) assessment in accordance with requirements of IEC61508
  • Facility quantitative risk assessment (QRA)
  • Identification of risk reduction measures and cost-benefit
  • Analysis in support of ALARP (as low as reasonably practicable) demonstration

BENEFITS

  • Reduce failures and optimise product / process
  • Improve safety and reliability
  • Optimise maintenance and inspection activities
  • Ensure compliance with industry regulation and legislation including safety case compliance

Decommissioning studies

Ensures regulatory compliance and safety in your decommissioning programme

Approximately 50% of the fixed platforms on the United Kingdom’s Continental Shelf (UKCS) have exceeded their original design life, often specified as 25 years, and a significant number of floating installations are similarly approaching or have exceeded it. As the existing infrastructure nears the end of its useful life it leads to increased decommissioning activities. The regulatory requirements related to decommissioning are quite exhaustive and unavoidable.

Compliance with the regulatory requirements are the base for a successful decommissioning process. Global SCS, with its wide service umbrella encompassing safety, risk management, asset integrity, technical assurance etc, can ensure that your decommissioning programme is in compliance with the regulatory requirement.

BENEFITS

  • Minimising project risk
  • Ensuring regulatory compliance
  • Supports the selection of most appropriate decommissioning concept
  • Helps identify targets for risk mitigation
