International petroleum regulators are increasingly concerned about the integrity of offshore drilling and production facilities. IADC Asset Integrity for Drilling Operations compiles a series of articles written by regulators from the United Kingdom, Norway, the Netherlands and Australia, as well as by the staff of IADC Drilling Contractor magazine, detailing key asset integrity challenges and issues. Included: Review of a 3-year study on UK offshore asset integrity; determining limits on age extension for mobile offshore drilling units; findings from an Australian inspection programme with implications for managing asset integrity; discussion of the role that all stakeholders play; plus, real-world examples of improving asset integrity.
