The oil and gas industry uses an array of marine vessels and structures, such as FPSO, FSU, FSO and LNG FSRU. •
Marine hazards include extremes of weather, accelerated corrosion, the proximity of other vessels, hazardous substances, cargo and personnel transfer operations, and piracy. •
Loading and unloading of vessels at marine terminals needs to be strictly controlled; the vessel must be securely moored; cargo transfer must be planned; and precautions against fire and explosion must be observed.
Vessels and crew are subject to regulatory controls, commonly known as ‘flagging’.
The crew of a vessel has a strict command structure – the Master (or captain) has ultimate authority and responsibility for the safety of the vessel and crew.
Personnel transfers can be achieved using methods such as bridges, baskets and rope ladders. •
Required PPE is task-dependent but typically includes hard hats, hi-viz jackets, boiler suits and gloves. •
Diving operations must be carefully planned and executed; they make use of the permit-to-work system.
Hazards of Vessels and Working
Floating storage and offloading unit – a floating
hull fitted with oil storage tanks and a facility
to transfer oil to tankers. Many FSOs are old,
The off-shore oil industry uses a vast array of marine vessels and structures, ranging from the large (floating oil rigs and oil tankers) to the small (survival craft).
The floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel performs the key functions of:
Receiving hydrocarbons which are produced from nearby
Off-loading them via a tanker or a pipeline.
FPSOs are often converted oil tankers or may be vessels built specially for the application.
Other vessels may perform a more limited range of functions
Floating storage unit – can either be the same as an
FSO or, more commonly, transfer the oil by pipeline
