Like many other industries, oil and gas activity at times exposes workers to challenging conditions and situations. Our obligation is an exceptionally strong health and safety culture that is internationally regarded, stringent and uncompromising, ensuring our workers and the environments they work in are safe.
Due to all-encompassing risk management procedures, oil and gas workers at production facilities are around four times less likely to experience an accident in their workplace than they are at home.
All offshore wells have ‘wellheads’ that sit on top of the well itself, and include Blowout Preventers (BOPs). These wellheads are attached to hydraulic lines. If systems above ground fail for any reason, such as an unpredicted earthquake, these hydraulic lines also fail, causing immediate closure of the wellhead and the safe sealing of the well.
