Towards an online risk model for dynamic positioning operations
MetadataShow full item record
Automation and increasing complexity mean that operators have to handle data and alarms and emergent decisions under the pressure of unexpected and rapidly changing hazardous situations. Position loss during marine operations may lead to serious accidents, such as collision, loss of well integrity, etc. An online risk model aims at assisting operators in dynamic positioning operations to successfully recover the vessel’s position in a good timing. The objective of this paper is to identify generic scenarios of position loss during operational phase and the information that is needed for successful recovery action. The results show that position loss normally involves of complex human machine interactions, generally in two patterns. Based on the findings, it has been recognized that risk model considering time aspect is of vital importance to develop an online risk model for DP operations.
