As part of the OFFshore ITRH training initiative, OFFshore ITRH member and Professor of Offshore Structures at UWA, Mike Efthymiou, provided the first training for 2020 on Asset Integrity for an Offshore Oil & Gas Installation and Structural Reliability Assessment.
With over 30 years of experience at Shell in a range of roles, Mike provided insight into the rigorous Hazard and Effect Management Process (HEMP) and discussed how establishing asset integrity often goes hand-in-hand with satisfying Engineering Standards, and sometimes requires additional, complementary measures or specifications.
With the development and submission of a Safety Case being a common requirement by Government around the world, Mike discussed the necessity to demonstrate that hazards to health and safety have been identified, that risks have been quantified, and that they are being effectively managed.
The event was well attended with PhD students, academics and members from industry engaging in this crucial topic.
Stay tuned for future sessions!
