PANEL: Minimising Costs And Assessing Risk Allocation To Prepare For The Maturation Of The Offshore Market

  • How competing with the low tender bids requires different thinking and smarter working
  • Changing profit models as a result of cost pressures by reducing O&M phase costs through better planning in earlier phases
  • Modelling the cost availability on investment in new designs and concepts: increased revenue vs. increase cost
  • Can the cost pressures created by the auctions on capex and opex have a negative impact on innovation and safety offshore?
  • Who is taking on various risk aspects and is it right that they should do so and where does commercial risk lie with health and safety concerns/procedures?
  • Correctly allocating risk so that all parties have fair/equal stake in each project and dealing with technical downtime risks

Observations From Digitalisation Of Vessel Monitoring: Operator Performance Management & Industry Alignment On Meaningful Safety

  • Why analogue problems still occur when using front line advancements such as vessel monitoring digitisation.
  • Applying quantitative and absolute measures all the way to contractor performance management 
  • Dealing with the challenge in the lack of consistency in motion tolerance and stability thresholds for safe transfer of personnel
