Oil & Gas IQ Publishes Report Into the Factors Behind Disasters From Sea

OilandGasIQ.com publishes special report by Integrity and HSE expert, Derek Park, on critical mistakes and safety failures in the oil and gas industry that lead to disaster and what needs to be done to avoid them in the future.

 
PRLog - Feb. 10, 2012 - “Rushed, last minute and bad decisions made in the middle of the night are all too familiar to most of us.”

Derek Park, 2012

In a 14 page special report for leading industry network Oil & Gas IQ, Integrity and HSE expert, Derek Park, presents a comprehensive analysis into why large scale disasters keep recurring in the energy sector.

In this in-depth investigation, Derek Park explores the major offshore incidents of the last fifty years from the Sea Gem and Alexander Kielland, to West Atlas and the Deepwater Horizon blowout, analysing the common traits that seem to underlie all these catastrophic events.

Derek Park concludes the report with a suggested plan of action to be implemented in order to prevent future disasters in the oil and gas industry.

“In a global industry with horrendous potential for getting things wrong, is it too much to expect that operators will adopt best practice wherever they operate even there is no obligation to do so? Governments also need to be attentive to their responsibilities.”
Derek Park, 2012

About Derek Park
Derek Park has 35 years experience of operational and organisational management in the oil, process and utilities industries. A chartered mechanical engineer, he spent time as a construction and commissioning manager on major offshore projects and was later an OIM in the North Sea. He has also managed operations on major pipelines and at onshore petrochemical facilities. During this time he realised that whilst the actions of people are key to the performance of any organisation, this is often not fully appreciated by managers and management systems.

He is a creator and developer of effective organisations and is driven by a belief that too many people spend too much of their time working on things that simply make no difference. He works directly with front line staff and advocates a ‘bottom up’ approach to transformation, complementary to the usual structural techniques. He specialises in engaging people in the change process, recognising that sustainable cultural change can only happen when people are prepared to take personal responsibility for transformation process itself.
