Prosafe: 1,500 Days with LTI on Abo FPSO

Prosafe SE said that the Abo FPSO has been operating 1,500 days without a lost time injury (LTI).

The vessel started operations on the Abo field offshore Nigeria in the beginning of April 2003, and has, in other words, been operating without LTI since production commenced (as of March 27, 2007).

The Abo FPSO is operating at the Abo field offshore Nigeria for Nigerian Agip Oil Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of ENI.

"My sincere congratulations to the crew and support staff who have contributed to the achievement of this major milestone," said Arne Austreid, president and CEO in Prosafe SE. "This first-class safety performance is the result of excellent management, good teamwork and the professional way in which the crew undertake their daily work. The crew has always been alert, intervened whenever spotting unsafe behavior and duly reported any hazardous situation or incident. They have proven that our philosophy of zero accidents is realistic, and provide motivation and inspiration to the company's other operations."

Safety is a core value in Prosafe, and the company has maintained a positive trend over many years. In 2006, the group's injury frequency (the number of lost-time injuries per million working hours) was 1.4, and reached an all-time low. Prosafe is not resting content with these results, and will continue to work hard and determined to bring the number of accidents down to zero on all its installations.
