2014 Events

Event:  LOPA ( Layers of Protection Analysis) - Practical Application and Pitfalls

Date: 22 - 23 October 2014 

Location: TBA 

LOPA is a risk assessment method used to determine and demonstrate how safeguards protect against known hazard scenarios. The Process Safety Leadership Group (PSLG) prepared specific guidance for using LOPA to determine the safety integrity level (SIL) for overfill protection of Buncefield-like storage tanks. This course draws on that guidance, its relevance to other applications, and pitfalls identified during the assessment of a large number of LOPAs.

Event:  Human Reliability Assessment using Human Error Assessment and Reduction Technique (HEART)

Date: 22 - 23 October 2014 

Location: TBA 


Achieving high reliability is the ultimate aim of safety management. Quantifying equipment failure rates is a well-established part of this process, but this knowledge represents only a portion of the complete picture. In this course, one of the most accessible techniques, the Human Error Assessment and Reduction Technique (HEART), will be explained. It is used in a wide range of industries such as chemical, oil, gas, nuclear, transport, defence and medicine, and gives insight into potential sources of error.

Event: Offshore Decommissioning Event, in association with DECC & Decom North Sea 

Date: 27 October 2014

Location: Top of the Terrace, Norwich City Football Club


EEEGR, in partnership with DECC and Decom North Sea, is delighted to be holding an event that will provide companies the chance to hear from Operators and Tier 1 Supply chain companies on the importance of finding ways to reduce the ever increasing cost of Offshore Decommissioning.

A number of Operators have confirmed their attendance at the event, including ConocoPhillips, Tullow Oil PLC, Shell & Centrica. Contractors attending will include; Helix, Bibby Offshore, Schlumberger, Seajacks and OIS Ltd

For this event the main focus will be on Well Plug and Abandonment and with approximately 500 wells in the Southern North Sea, which could potentially be decommissioned in the next 5 years, there is a real opportunity for collaborative working between companies.

Decommissioning costs reduction and collaboration are both action areas in Sir Ian Wood’s UKCS Maximising Recovery Report and this event is an important starting point to show how companies can work together for the benefit of the Oil and Gas Industry
