Rig Decommissioning Specialists Meet in Houston

Press Release
Thursday, March 28, 2013

Safety Management Systems were at the global meeting of decommissioning professionals, which attracts nearly 1,000 attendees annually.

Along with other expert speakers, Gary Siems, decommissioning manager for Stone Energy, spoke about concurrent decommissioning. Last year, they acquired the world’s largest self-elevating, self-propelled vessel, that allows the company to perform all stages of the decommissioning process in a single mobilization.

SMS has four safety specialists assigned to this vessel, which has logged over 200,000 man hours without incident.

Bobby Pagitt, part of the executive sales team at SMS, attended the event and said, “Each decommissioning project is different and presents new challenges, and with these new challenges come many safety issues and concerns. As regulations change and regulatory bodies require operators to remove facilities that are no longer operational, there will be more and more opportunities for SMS to assist from a safety and medical standpoint.”

SMS, a division of Acadian, is one of the largest providers of safety, medical, security, training, and health and wellness services in the United States.

Since 1971, Acadian has been committed to providing the highest level of emergency medical care and transportation possible. In the past decade, the company has expanded to include a diverse suite of services in health, safety, and transportation. Acadian’s six divisions are Acadian Ambulance Service, Acadian Monitoring Services, Air Med, Executive Aircraft Charter Service, National EMS Academy and Safety Management Systems.
