Product description

From the Back Cover

Offshore Risk Assessment was the first book to deal with quantified risk assessment (QRA) as applied specifically to offshore installations and operations. Risk assessment techniques have been used for more than three decades in the offshore oil and gas industry, and their use is set to expand increasingly as the industry moves into new areas and faces new challenges in older regions.


This updated and expanded third edition has been informed by a major R&D program on offshore risk assessment in Norway and summarizes research from 2006 to the present day. Rooted with a thorough discussion of risk metrics and risk analysis methodology,  subsequent chapters are devoted to analytical approaches to escalation, escape, evacuation and rescue analysis of safety and emergency systems.


Separate chapters analyze the main hazards of offshore structures: fire, explosion, collision, and falling objects as well as structural and marine hazards. Risk mitigation and control are discussed, as well as an illustration of how the results from quantitative risk assessment studies should be presented. The third second edition has a stronger focus on the use of risk assessment techniques in the operation of offshore installations. Also decommissioning of installations is covered.


Not only does Offshore Risk Assessment describe the state of the art of QRA, it also identifies weaknesses and areas that need further development. This new edition also illustrates applications or quantitative risk analysis methodology to offshore petroleum applications.


A comprehensive reference for academics and students of marine/offshore risk assessment and management, the book should also be owned by professionals in the industry, contractors, suppliers, consultants and regulatory authorities.

2.0 out of 5 stars There is nothing to learn form this book 5 May 2015
By Hammad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a kind of book where read and read and yet one cannot find what is the point of writing the book To me it is a waste of money. It does not tell you anything about how to do any of the risk analysis technique. There is no concept to be learned from the book and all it talks about is this software can do this and that software can do that etc. If I want to know about softwares i will google it. The book may gives some insight to offshore regulations but that is also not discrete. Not sure what was the motive behind the 3rd edition and it has two volumes, whyyyyy. The book could have easily provided some basic models on risk analysis.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good information - not a guideline. 21 Dec. 2009
By Oilconx - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book has 15 chapters, everything from basic definitions, such as PLL, frequency of impairment etc, to chapters where explosion risk modelling are described quite in detail. On an overall basis, I am sure every pro- can learn something from this book. However, it is not a guideline, outlining a stepwise QRA-approach. It is rather a collection of chapters (sometimes with varying quality) where different aspects of risk analysis are discussed. Chapter 10 (Collision Risk Modelling) gives detailed information about both the historical ship collision incidents and a model about how to calculate the collision energy & consequences. Obviously, the section about historical incidents is a bit outdated and include a few misleading information. Appendix A gives an overview of the softwares in the market. Some of the softwares in the list are not supported anymore. Furthermore, RiskSpectrum is a PSA tool, pretty much tailored for nuc- business. To conclude: Mr. Vinnem and his team put a lot of effort into this book. I think everybody can find something they may like in the book.
