Offshore staff

ABERDEEN, UKStatoil (UK) has contracted Plant Integrity Management (PIM) to perform a pressure safety valve (PSV) risk based inspection (RBI) review of the recertification process for the Mariner field in the UK northern North Sea.

PIM’s scope covers development and implementation of the Technical Strategy document for both the Mariner A production, drilling and quarters platform and Mariner B floating storage vessel.

Colin Shields, valve specialist at PIM, said: “Managing PSVs correctly ensures that they will prevent process plant over pressurization and the release of hazardous fluids.

“Timely recertification provides a duty holder with the reassurance that their valves are correctly maintained and will function on demand.”
