Offshore staff

HOUSTON – ABS, which provides classification services to the global offshore industry, has formed the ABS Offshore Equipment Advisory Committee.

The committee will provide guidance on ways to improve equipment safety, and that guidance will be used to update and improve ABS rules and associated classification processes. It will also further refine the industry’s focus on equipment safety and facilitate information exchange for rule development and enhancement of classification services for equipment to industry.

Input from the Offshore Equipment Advisory Committee also will enable ABS engineers and surveyors to more effectively carry out associated classification services.

One of the primary focuses of this committee will be to gather information from offshore experts to guide changes and additions to publications like the ABS Guide for the Classification of Drilling Systems.

Plans are in place for the new committee to meet semi-annually to address relevant technical issues.
