IOGP Report 447

Learn about the appropriate and robust HSE guidance needed for metocean and Arctic surveying

This OGP Report is a guideline for clients on health, safety and environmental aspects of metocean and Arctic surveys. The metocean guidance applies worldwide. The Arctic guidance applies for all cold regions where there may be sea-borne ice. It was written by a group of OGP members with input and assistance from several contractors and consultants. The original version of this guideline, HSE guidelines for metocean surveys, OGP report № 348 (December 2003) has been widely adopted within the industry as good practice. Feedback from several sources on the application of the original report has been incorporated into this update. As the search for offshore hydrocarbons has moved to increasingly challenging environments, such as deep water and Arctic areas, the requirement to have appropriate and robust HSE guidance has grown in importance. The original report did not address operations in Arctic areas. Potential issues to be considered in such locations include remoteness, logistics, darkness, extremely cold air and water temperatures, sea spray and atmospheric icing, ice-wave combinations, sea ice and icebergs. Please advise OGP of your comments and suggestions on how these guidelines can be improved. Colin Grant Chairman, OGP Metocean Committee
