HEAT SHIELD WALLS ON LIVING QUARTERS, INSTALLED ON DRILLING AND PRODUCTION PLATFORMS AT EKOFISK-NORWEGIAN NORTH SEA

The paper concludes that the safety of personnel resident in a Living Quarters module on an offshore installation during production well drilling, completion, wire lining and field production can be greatly improved by the installation of the heat shield wall, on the inboard side of the quarters. This concept is gaining wide acceptance by authoritative bodies. Significance of the study is that it has developed, in a rudimentary fashion, a tool for predicting the mechanics and consequences of certain platform disasters; as well as developing a form of construction to meet these events, should they occur. This construction is now an established form of protection by Phillips Petroleum Co. for all new permanent quarters in the Norwegian North Sea.
