The operator´s association for emergency response
The Operator’s Association for Emergency Response, known as OFFB, is a member-led, non-profit emergency response organisation utilised by many operating companies on the Norwegian continental shelf. We provide professional 2nd line emergency response services to our members, and are an integral part of their emergency response systems. OFFB also acts as a resource and expertise centre for all its members.
INEOS Oil & Gas Norway is preparing to spud its ‘Fat Canyon’ wildcat in the summer of 2021. Together with OFFB, the company is rehearsing its emergency response system. “It is essential to go up routines and brush up on our knowledge,” says general manager Erik Magnesen.
A close dialogue, a focus on details and the ability to improvise were some of the key factors in the handling of the COVID-19 outbreak on board the West Phoenix drilling rig in the beginning of August 2020.
