Aggressive, powerful security inspection courses are key parts to making sure that oil- and gas-producing platform operations at the outer continental shelf are carried out in a secure and environmentally sound demeanour. even supposing the oil and gasoline leaseholders themselves are basically accountable for the steadiness in their operations, the Minerals administration carrier (MMS) of the dept of the internal is charged with prescribing protection and examining systems. in line with an MMS request, this ebook examines attainable revisions of MMS's inspection procedure, appraises inspection practices elsewhere--both in govt and industry--assesses the benefits and downsides of different systems, and recommends almost certainly extra effective practices geared toward expanding industry's expertise of its responsibility for safety.

The 1st wildcatters within the Southeastern states of Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida all started drilling round the flip of the century, yet good fortune eluded them. with the exception of a number of insignificant shallow gasoline fields in northern Alabama, all early wells - greater than 2 hundred of them by means of 1925 - proved to be dry.

Therefore, the thrust of the MMS inspection program should be oversight to ensure that the operator has established and is following practices that will result in safe operations. " Accepting oversight as the thrust of the MMS inspection program, it is pertinent to explore the relationship of inspection to safety. This chapter of the report examines the issue to highlight different approaches to thinking about safety that the committee believes will be useful in evaluating alternative inspection programs.

Where experience in applying FMEA analysis to production equipment indicates that only one level of protection is required because of the degree of reliability of the primary device and the low cost of the specific consequences of failure, nevertheless, two levels of protection should be specified since it is often more costly in engineering time to document the need for only one level of protection than it is to install and maintain two levels. • Assemble the components into the process system and apply FMEA techniques to determine if protection devices on some components provide redundant protection for other components.
