Oil & Gas UK Praised by London Awards
Posted on: 16/07/2015

The regulatory body Oil & Gas UK has been given immense praise for significantly improving the safety and efficiency of work offshore.

Its good practice guidelines have received particular attention and were even given an award by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) at an annual awards ceremony in London earlier this year.

At current there are more than 30 peer-reviewed guidelines written for the industry that cover a wide range of issues including cargo handling, emergency response, decommissioning activities and well operations. These are all used to ensure that work carried out offshore is done in the most effective way to protect the workers, the environment and the consumers.

OGUK operations director, Oonagh Werngren has said: “This important work demonstrates the industry’s ongoing commitment to continually review and improve the performance of all aspects of offshore operations.

“It shows what can be achieved through working together with the operators, contractors, service companies, government representatives and other stakeholders to strengthen the long-term health of the UK offshore oil gas industry and improve safety for the people who work in it.”

This is a very honourable time for Oil & Gas UK and the oil industry as a whole, as it demonstrates the combined effort of everyone to safeguard the UK oil industry in the future.
