BSEE Updating Safety Regulations

With much of the oil and gas production on the OCS having moved into deeper waters, the regulations have not kept pace with the technological advancements, its proposed rule states.

The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement announced it plans to update its regulations to address safety and pollution prevention equipment lifecycle analysis, production safety systems, subsurface safety devices, and safety device testing. BSEE's proposed rule would differentiate the requirements for operating dry tree and subsea tree production systems on the Outer Continental Shelf and divide the current subpart H into multiple sections to make the regulations easier to read and understand.

These regulations haven't been updated since they were originally published in 1988.

Since then, much of the oil and gas production on the OCS has moved into deeper waters, and the regulations have not kept pace with the technological advancements, according to its proposed rule.
