BSEE issues updated Notice to Lessees during hurricane season

  BSEE is providing updated guidance for the current and future hurricane seasons through a Notice to Lessees (NTL) released. NTL 2015-G02 clarifies reporting requirements related to personnel evacuation, production curtailment, and shut-in activity. These reports are received and processed within BSEE’s hurricane response team and is required to help mitigate risks associated with hurricanes and tropical storms on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). Offshore oil and gas operators determine when to activate their severe weather plans for their drilling rigs and production platforms. Once activated, operators are required to report daily to BSEE’s hurricane response team. Reporting and monitoring continues during these storms and until operations return to normal following the severe weather. Through an interagency collaboration, US Coast Guard is embedded within BSEE’s hurricane response team to better coordinate response activities should they be required. Current reporting requirements spelled out in 30 CFR 250.192 including: preparations for hurricanes, tropical storms, and severe weather, and reporting requirements can be found here along with more about how BSEE’s hurricane response team operates.

HHI jointly develops “Sea Weather Forecasting System”

  Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), announced that it jointly developed the “Sea Weather Forecasting System” with Korea Institute of Ocean Science & Technology (KIOST). The system will enable HHI to manage sea trial schedules of ships it builds at its Ulsan yard 72 hours in advance by analyzing sea weather information such as wave height, wind speed and current patterns on an hourly basis in seven offshore areas including Ulsan, Gunsan, and Jeju Island. The weather system is also expected to minimize any possible delay in lifting work of the floating crane due to unexpected weather conditions through precision forecasting of the sea weather by every 60 meter in Mipo Bay and Jeonha Bay where HHI is based. The geographic information system (GIS)–based system can also display sea weather information on the specific spots on an electronic navigational chart. An HHI official said, “The weather forecasting system we developed is linked to 530 weather observation equipment across the nation and it can forecast 10 percent more precisely than other existing weather systems by analysing adjacent sea topography 16 times more accurately.” Since 2006, HHI has been operating “Weather Management” by installing weather observation equipment at 18 spots at its Ulsan ...

Year of Polar prediction takes shape

  An international action plan to improve predictions of weather, climate and ice conditions in Polar regions has been agreed in an effort to minimize the risks and maximize the opportunities associated with rapid changes in the Arctic and Antarctic environments. A conference from 13-15 July, which grouped operational weather and climate prediction centres, environmental experts, researchers, funding agencies and the shipping and tourist sectors, finalized plans for a Year of Polar Prediction. This will take place from mid-2017 to mid-2019 (in order to cover an entire year in both the Arctic and Antarctic) and will seek to accelerate and consolidate research, observing, modelling, verification and educational activities as part of a wider Polar Prediction Project. There is growing interest in the polar regions, fuelled by concerns about the rapid pace of climate change. The Arctic is heating at roughly twice the global average rate, with consequent reductions in ice and snow cover and melting of glaciers and permafrost. The impact of this is not confined to the Arctic but is felt in other parts of the globe – as exemplified by rising sea levels and changing weather and climate patterns.  “Advances in Polar prediction will lead to improvements in weather ...

Meteorological system in the Kara Sea gets restored

As part of a large-scale summer Arctic research expedition "Kara-Summer - 2014" a meteorological station was installed that meets the latest modern requirements for such equipment, on the island of Uedinenie. The expedition organized by the "Arctic Research and Development Center" (a joint venture of "Rosneft" and ExxonMobil), with the support of the specialists from the FGBI "Arctic and Antarctic Scientific Research Institute" has completed the restoration of the system of meteorological observations in the Kara Sea, where previously as commissioned by the Company three more stations were installed. This will allow supplying the region with a full-fledged complex of meteorological monitoring. Also, preventive maintenance of all previously installed meteorological stations on the archipelago Novaya Zemlya was carried out. The Company is systematically implementing an extensive program to restore all systems of meteorological observations in the Arctic, and the expedition is planning to install a few more meteorological stations in the Laptev Sea and the East Siberian Sea. A unified network of meteorological observation will not only allow optimizing the works on geological exploration and increasing the effectiveness of extraction works, but it will also enable a series of large-scale scientific and research programs to study the region. The amount ...
