Safety Case / Safety Reports


RPS has extensive experience in the development of safety cases for the offshore and onshore oil and gas industry, including major oil companies, operators, drilling companies and marine contractors using the BowTieXP software.

Our consultants have successfully developed complete safety cases, campaign specific safety case revisions and detailed risk studies for facilities ranging from fixed production platforms, Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSOs), rigless well intervention support vessels, and in particular, mobile offshore drilling units, including semi-submersibles, jack-ups and ultra-deep water drill ships.

RPS is experienced in onshore drilling and production and has developed a thorough and comprehensive safety case development process that ensures safety cases are produced in accordance with the International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC) guidelines.

Safety cases are developed in a format that are readily accepted globally, while specifically addressing the legal requirements and regulator expectations for operations in Australia and South East Asia. RPS utilises the BowTie methodology to analyse Major Accident Events (MAEs) to ensure that risks are reduced to as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP).
