Vysus Group has secured a framework agreement with Norway’s oil and gas safety watchdog.

The engineering and technology firm will help the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) investigate accidents and incidents over the next two years.

There is an option to extend the agreement, which was awarded at the end of last 2020, for an additional two years to 2024.

Vysus, formerly Lloyds Register Energy, said it will support the improvement of safety and provide advice in risk analysis and emergency preparedness.

The scope of work will include assessments to determine hazards to offshore personnel or the environment.

It will also carry out studies into a various topics, potentially ranging from new technologies to fire and explosion calculations.

Vysus’ team will support the PSA on projects to highlight the level of risk within the petroleum activities.

Investments in oil and gas activity are accelerating this year and will total NOK 166.3 billion (£14.2bn), according to a recent survey by the Norwegian Statistics Bureau.

Robert Nyiredy, VP risk management consulting at Vysus, said: “By proactively identifying risk, and arming asset operators with key data and insights, the PSA is helping to prevent serious health and safety issues and catastrophic environmental disasters before they arise, thus protecting the environment and the hundreds of thousands of personnel working in Norway’s oil and gas sector each year.

“This has never been more important than it is today, as operators face the challenges associated with reduced manpower and Covid-19 restrictions.”

He added: “We are proud to continue our relationship with the PSA, and to have the opportunity to support its sharp focus on safety through this latest agreement.

“The appointment is testament to the trust and confidence that Vysus Group has built with the government authority, and our commitment to making global oil and gas operations as efficient and safe as possible through our specialist risk management services.”
