Abstract

An activity indicator for work on offshore petroleum installations is developed, in order to reflect the risk of hydrocarbon leaks during planned activities in a medium long time scale. The indicators may be used proactively during planning, and are risk based, in the sense that the risk levels reflect the likelihood of loss of personnel, according to the severity of the leak, and expected performance of barriers. The approach is briefly compared to a more simplified scheme. Further work is outlined, including extended focus on concurrency of activities, and testing on a pilot installation.
