Sneak Preview: Regulator: Asset integrity responsibilities must be shared among stakeholders

Posted on 17 February 2009

Technical integrity-wise, the survey showed that rig owners have “a very thorough approach” towards assuring asset integrity of primary structures by the use of management systems. IADC’s HSE Case Guideline for MODUs was cited as a recognized format among North Sea regulators to promote good practice.

Sufficient time and resources must be continually allocated for carrying out inspection and verification of safety critical equipment, they said.

The full article – the final in our asset integrity series – will be published in the March/April 2009 issue Drilling Contractor.
