Anasuria FPSO reaches major safety milestone

The Anasuria FPSO has once again been recognised by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

The Order of Distinction - awarded in honour of the asset receiving a gold award for 18 consecutive years - was granted in celebration of the occupational health and safety management systems, including leadership and workforce involvement, on board the North Sea-based asset.

Petrofac has been Service Operator since 2016 when the asset was divested from Shell to Anasuria Operating Company (AOC). We currently look after the FPSO’s operations, as well as monitoring and managing its pipelines and wells.

Matt Webley, Anasuria Marine Supervisor, Petrofac Engineering and Production Services, West, said: “To achieve one gold award is an excellent achievement but 18 in a row really does indicate how consistent and passionate about safety the team is on a daily basis.

“There has been a lot of change for those on board in recent times so this award is further testament to the commitment of both the offshore and onshore teams. Congratulations to everyone involved over the last 18 years.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, added: “The RoSPA Awards are the most prestigious in the world of occupational health and safety. Held in high regard around the world, winning one demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record. Achieving the standard required is no mean feat.”

The team was recently presented with the award during a ceremony in Glasgow.
