SECE’s: Identification, Performance Standards and Verification

Quantitative safety studies

Challenges, opportunities and best practices for identifying the Safety and Environmental Critical Elements of an Offshore Oil & Gas installation and establishing Performance Standards.

The Danish Offshore Safety Act (Consolidated Act 831:2015) and Executive Order 1404:2017 require that offshore operators/owners shall identify the safety and environmental critical elements (SECE’s), and that the risk of their failure be assessed. Furthermore, an arrangement for independent verification of SECE’s shall be established. 

Course objectives 
Following the workshop in November 2017, we will focus on Performance Standards and the relation between SECE’s and the role of Major Hazard prevention and mitigation. We will discuss the need to go into some detail, i.e. discuss the difference between SECE categories (e.g. “Active Fire Protection”) and specific SECE systems (“Fire water system at platform XXX”). We will discuss the selection of Performance Standards, both with regard to design and operation, and how their functionality and acceptance criteria shall be verifiable and related to the specific SECE’s role in preventing or mitigating Major Hazards.

Where possible we will refer to international standards, published guidelines and recommended practices from industry, authorities and DNV GL. We will discuss suitable approaches to Verification Schemes, and compare the UK approach and experience with the Danish implementation.

Who should attend 
The event is relevant for operators and suppliers in the offshore oil & gas industry dealing with HSE and risk. 

  • We discuss best practices for establishing Performance Standards
  • We discuss best practices for Verification Schemes
  • We offer an opportunity for discussion and sharing experiences.
