Increased safety measures for energy development of the Outer Continental Shelf
Learn more about the new requirements for operators of drilling rigs on the Outer Continental Shelf, and how we can help you meet them.
On 8 June 2010, the US Department of Interior issued a Notice to Lessees (NTL-2010-05) stipulating certification requirements for operators of drilling rigs on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS).
Operators are now required to submit a general certification that they are knowledgeable of all operating regulations at 30 CFR 250 – Oil and Gas and Sulphur Operations in the OCS – and that they are conducting their operations in compliance with those regulations. Operators must review their operations to ensure that they are performed in a safe and workmanlike manner as required by §250.107(a)(1).
The NTL also mandates reviews of people, process, assets and systems involved with emergency well control operations.
Led by our ModuSpec drilling inspectors, we can help you complete the immediate tasks of NTL 2010-05.
For a break-down of the new requirements, and to learn how we can help you satisfy them, browse through the dedicated section on our US Energy website.
