Ireland Selects GL Noble Denton for Safety Framework

Monday, April 25, 2011

GL Noble Denton, the global independent technical advisor to the oil and gas industry, has been appointed by the Irish Commission for Energy Regulation (CER) to assist in developing Ireland's new Petroleum Safety Framework (PSF).

 
Once complete, the Petroleum Safety Framework will create a system that allows the CER to assess and monitor the safety of Ireland's petroleum industry.  The half-million Euro project will outline how safety will be regulated for each stage of the lifecycle of Ireland's petroleum assets, from design, construction and operation to maintenance, modification and decommissioning of the full range of assets for which the regulations are deemed to apply.
 
During the development of the Framework, GL Noble Denton's consultants will form an extension of the CER team, working with the Irish public, oil and gas operators, statutory bodies and other interested parties to research and develop a world-class set of regulations. 
 
GL Noble Denton will work with the CER in developing a range of discussion, consultation and decision papers for the new PSF over 2011 and 2012, using experienced technical advisors based on-site at the Commission's headquarters in Dublin and at GL Noble Denton offices. The GL Noble Denton project team will work with the CER to undertake a period of extensive consultation with key stakeholders in the lead up to finalising the Petroleum Safety Framework.
 
GL Noble Denton has developed a track record in assisting authorities and operators in developing, influencing and interpreting regulatory policies, with particular expertise in the UK, Norway, USA, Australia and Singapore. The experience gained in working with safety regulations in these countries will help form the CER's approach to developing Ireland's Petroleum Safety Framework.marsh loss and shoreline retreat.
