Lloyd’s Register’s Global Technology Center in Singapore held its inaugural Offshore Technical Committee last week with representatives from national and international oil companies, EPC contractors, owners, operators, fabricators, shipbuilders, equipment vendors and representatives from a number of academic and research organizations.

The members took part in a series of networking opportunities and technical workshops but also crucially approved two Lloyd’s Register Rule-sets: The Floating Offshore Installations at a Fixed Location 2013 Rules and the Mobile Offshore Unit 2013 Rules. Both will be made public this month, May 2013.

Chris Walters, Senior Vice President for Lloyd’s Register’s Compliance Services said, “The Committee ensures that our Rules reflect industry best practice and I’m delighted that so many key figures have given their time to make that happen. Rules are continuously amended to improve usability, reflect industry best practice, new novel designs and legislative changes.”

Walters continued, “We decided early on that we did not want the Committee to be tied to a single city or even country but reflect the fact that this is a global business and Lloyd’s Register is a global company.”

Modern class societies have to offer technical solutions that recognize an industry's legacy, while driving the research and development that will help to ensure that same industry builds the safe infrastructure it needs to meet future energy challenges. The latest developments in the Lloyd’s Register Rules set appropriate standards for design, construction and lifetime maintenance in the oil and gas, and maritime sectors, providing all the information needed for classification purposes.

Seventeen different nationalities attended the event in Singapore. At the heart of the Committee is a shared vision to create and share best-practice and knowledge, and to discuss implications of upcoming legislation on the industry as well as technology developments and improvements in Rules. The next meeting is planned in Rio de Janeiro in 2014
