Assurance Surveys

Assurance Surveys

For offshore facilities, effective risk management and operational procedures are essential. Well-defined procedures can help offshore managers ensure safety, avoid costly accidents, and extend operating life.

Assurance surveys by Bureau Veritas Solutions Marine & Offshore provide offshore operators with reassurance that their procedures are correct and capable of managing the risks associated with operating and/or reactivating their offshore units. Marine assurance services also provide informed solutions, which help unit operators and onboard managers define and improve procedures to better manage the myriad risks associated with offshore operations.

Well-designed procedures are key to the safe operation of offshore assets. To avoid costly incidents, operators and managers of offshore units need reassurance that their operational and risk management procedures are comprehensive, relevant and precise. In the case of reactivating laid-up column stabilized and self-elevating drilling rigs, having defined procedures is paramount for unit operators looking to best manage potential risks.
