NEW LIFE FOR BRENT BRAVO

The 20-year old BRENT BRAVO concrete gravity, drilling, production, quarters and storage platform is now back in production after a shutdown of 13 months for a 492 million refurbishment. The article describes the refurbishment which was divided into four phases: design, onshore construction, offshore pre-shutdown construction and offshore shutdown construction. Each phase required a separate safety case to be approved by the UK Health and Safety Executive.
