Petroleum and natural gas industries — Offshore production installations — Requirements and guidelines for emergency response AMENDMENT 1
|Publication Date:||1 May 2009|
|ICS Code (Exploratory, drilling and extraction equipment):||75.180.10|
This International Standard describes objectives, functional requirements and guidelines for emergency response (ER) measures on installations used for the development of offshore hydrocarbon resources. It is applicable to fixed offshore structures or floating production, storage and off-take systems.
NOTE For mobile offshore units, the ER plans developed in conformance with the requirements and recommendations of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) are generally adequate for the normal, independent operation of the unit in most locations. The following aspects of ER planning are generally not addressed by IMO and should be specially considered:
- area evacuation, e.g. precautionary evacuation in areas of tropical revolving storms;
- combined operations wherein an integrated command and ER system should be developed;
- arctic operations;
- uncontrolled flow from a well.
