Operators are required to submit reports detailing the status of their offshore activities. Reports are submitted daily, monthly, quarterly, and annually, depending on the type of report. The types of reports submitted for each activity will vary based on the environment, regulatory requirements and conditions placed on the Activity Authorization. Some of the types of reports we receive for a production activity include:
- Operations reports (daily)
- Activity reports (weekly)
- Production reports (monthly)
- Incident statistic reports (quarterly)
- Environmental effects monitoring reports (annually)
- Regulatory query reports (annually)
- Safety reports (annually)
- Industrial benefits reports (annually)
We review the reports we receive in detail to identify areas of concern and to ensure compliance with requirements. If any compliance issues are noted, we require the operator to take action to make sure the concerns are dealt with in a timely manner.
Operators must notify us of all reportable incidents and events that occur while conducting offshore oil and gas activities. This includes incidents that may take place on the water or in the air. For each incident reported to us, we verify that the operator has taken the appropriate actions to determine the cause of the incident and to identify and then implement the necessary corrective actions to prevent reoccurrence. Learn more about incident reporting in our Health,Safety & Environmental Performance section.
Workplace Committee Minutes
We routinely review minutes from workplace committee meetings held on offshore worksites to ensure that health and safety matters raised through this forum are dealt with appropriately by an operator.
