Sharing knowledge about facilities operations

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Plans are underway in Norway for a centre for sharing knowledge about facility operation

Plans are being discussed to set up a centre in Norway, called "Centre for Production Facilities", for helping share knowledge about petroleum facilities, including discussions about how to extend field life, avoid accidents, improve operating and asset integrity, manage ageing and new petroleum facilities more efficiently.

Research organisations behind the planinclude Marintex, SINTEF, NTNU, University of Stavanger, Institute for Energy Technology, and the International Research Institute of Stavanger.

It should be collaborative effort between oil and gas industry and research and development community. Oil and gas companies are invited to join by contributing NOK 5m (USD 877k)annually over a 5 year period.

There are plans for 4 research programs:

Managing the risk of major accidents,including improving risk assessment, development key performance indicators, monitoring safety barriers, and creating a culture better able to handle unexpected events.

Improving the (human) organisation under complex conditions, including organisational resilience, organisation learning, enhancing working environments.

Strategies for life extension and re-assessment, including assessment processes,assessing structural integrity, procedures for repair, data collection, condition monitoring,criticality analysis.

Supporting safe facility and marine operation, including modernising control centres for operation and information management, monitoring the ship/aircraft/submarine operations interface, and simulating complex marine operations before doing them.

The facility will also educate PhD and MSc students.
