HOUSTON – Bureau Veritas has awarded certification to Statoil for meeting the Safety and Environmental Management Systems (SEMS) protocols developed by the Center for Offshore Safety, an enhanced set of requirements in the offshore oil and gas industry.

Statoil is the first organization to be issued a SEMS certificate by Bureau Veritas, and is also the first offshore operator to successfully complete an independent assessment and demonstrate compliance with the offshore safety and environmental sustainability rule.

The certification recognizes that Statoil Gulf of Mexico E&P’s management system meets industry and regulatory requirements for SEMS. The standard entails 13 elements, including management commitment, hazards analysis, change management, operating procedures, safe work practices, training, quality assurance of critical equipment, pre-startup reviews, emergency response, incident investigation, and documentation/record keeping.
