In simultaneous operations (SIMOPS), independent operation may impact the safety of personnel, equipment, and environment of another operation. SIMOPS requirements include hazard identification and risk mitigation and safety impact when planning SIMOPS work activities to be taking place simultaneously in the same location. These operations can be offshore, i.e. subsea oil and gas production, or onshore, i.e. oil and gas marine terminals during expansion or major maintenance work within a live process area of existing facility. SIMOPS also refer to steps taken during the construction, commissioning, start-up and operation of any onshore oil and gas processing plant.
This programme will focus on the strengths of creating and implementing SIMOPS plans and activities for organization regarding onshore and offshore projects. Consequences of not including them, such as costly delays or serious harm or injury to onshore off shore oil and gas installations and personnel, will also be explained. The programme will include several workshops with solving real problems from everyday practice.
