Diamond Offshore Meets Requirements

Thursday, July 18, 2002
ABS recently awarded Diamond Offshore Drilling, Inc. an International Safety Management (ISM) Document of Compliance certificate. The ISM certification is a requirement of the United Nations-led International Maritime Organization's (IMO) Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) regulation, which became mandatory for all self-propelled offshore drilling vessels operating under member-state flags on July 1, 2002. The ISM code provides an international standard for pollution prevention and the safe management of ship operations. The ISM certification requires each company operating self-propelled offshore drilling vessels of more than 500 gross tons to demonstrate a safety management system designed to protect not only the vessel, but also the offshore personnel and marine environment where the vessel operates. The following six Diamond Offshore mobile offshore drilling units have been awarded a Safety Management Certificate from ABS: the Ocean America, Ocean Confidence and Ocean Valiant, each currently operating in the Gulf of Mexico; and the Ocean Alliance, Ocean Clipper and Ocean Yatzy, each currently operating off the coast of Brazil. ABS audited Diamond Offshore for compliance with the ISM code. ABS Americas President Robert E. Kramek presented the certificate to Diamond Offshore President and Chief Operating Officer Lawrence Dickerson saying this certification publicly demonstrates Diamond Offshore's commitment to safety in terms of people and the marine environments in which they operate.
