Project Information


Real-Time Monitoring of Offshore Oil and Gas Operations


Project Scope:

An ad hoc committee will conduct a study to advise the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE), U.S. Department of the Interior, on the use of real-time monitoring systems (RTM) by industry and government to reduce the safety and environmental risks of offshore oil and gas operations.  As part of its data-gathering efforts, the committee will organize and hold a public workshop to review the information provided in a forthcoming external technical report for BSEE on RTM for oil and gas operations.  The committee will develop the workshop agenda, select and invite speakers and discussants, and moderate the discussions. The committee will subsequently (1) issue an interim report summarizing the presentations and discussion at the workshop and any findings the committee draws from the event and from the BSEE technical report and (2) hold additional meetings to develop and provide a final report with recommendations on the use of RTM by the offshore oil & gas industry and BSEE.  Recommendations will address these general questions:


1.
    What critical operations and specific parameters should be monitored to manage and mitigate environmental and safety risks?  (For example, to reduce the risk of well kicks, blowouts, and other source of casualties.)

2.    What role should automation and predictive software tools play in RTM?

3.    What role should condition-based monitoring play in RTM?

4.    Should RTM be incorporated into BSEE's regulatory scheme in either a prescriptive or performance-based manner?

5.    How should BSEE leverage RTM to enhance its safety enforcement program?

The workshop agenda will be designed to address all of these questions, but focus on the first three.  

The committee’s interim report would be based on the BSEE technical report and the workshop, including any specific topics raised during the workshop that warrant further investigation, and provide a thorough examination of RTM and its use by industry and government regulators.  The final report will provide findings and recommendations to BSEE addressing all five of the questions listed above.
