The 4th Offshore Structures Reliability Conference, Houston, 2018
September 19 - September 20
The overall goal of the Offshore Structural Reliability Conference (OSCRC) is to contribute to: understanding and documenting the collective knowledge of offshore structures reliability; harmonizing of different standards for structural design; maximizing the learnings from operational experience
Relevant topics for the conference include:
- Past to the future – Codes, Standards and practices – are we consistent
- Risks – in the life cycle – from Design to Decommissioning – is it balanced?
- Linking design, fabrication, operation and assessment – service life extension
- Identify gaps, inconsistencies and areas of study
- Safety versus economics (e.g. the ALARP principle)
It will be of interest to operators, industry organizations, regulators and academics.
The 2018 conference, arranged by API, will have special focus on integrity management and life time extension of offshore structures. This is fundamental to optimal utilization of the infrastructure already built and an enabler for several future field developments based on tie-in.

IOGP launched the first Offshore Structures Reliability Conference in 2012, hosted by BP in London. The second was hosted by API in Houston, in 2014, and the third was hosted by Statoil in Stavanger, in 2016. The 2016 proceeding can be accessed at https://www.ntnu.edu/osrc2016-iogp
