Lloyd's Register Energy: Industry Can't Cut Costs in Safety

Lloyd’s Register Energy is challenging oil and gas companies to re-think their approach to safety, performance and technical innovation to secure the world’s changing energy supply in a sustainable way, from reservoir and refinery to beyond.

Duco de Haan, Lloyd’s Register Energy’s SVP of Commercial Development, said: “With a changing energy mix and increased challenges around innovative drilling techniques, the industry cannot afford to be complacent when it comes to safety.”

The leading compliance, integrity and specialist risk consultancy services group says industry must adapt to anticipated future market and technology developments, but that it must not lose sight of safety.

“All stakeholders across America and Canada have a responsibility and interest to assure the safety and reliability of new, ‘cleaner’ and more sustainable energy sources, to meet with increasing energy demands and government targets worldwide for reducing carbon emissions,” said de Haan.

“There will always be some level of risk associated with offshore and onshore energy production,” said de Haan. “But we can make operations safer by helping our clients manage and minimise risk.”

The company’s drilling integrity services and its risk consulting business, combined with its more traditional compliance, asset integrity and inspection services, offer the world's most comprehensive suite of technical services to owners and operators of energy facilities.

These new capabilities can apply expertise and technology to assist the development of oil and gas fields. Lloyd’s Register Energy’s suite of core technical services focus on subsurface, well engineering and operations, site survey and geo-engineering, facilities development solutions and power engineering, which are complemented by software and training products through to pipeline and onshore power generation services and total supply chain management.
