The Phase 3 report is an assessment of international standards for safe exploration, production and transportation of oil and gas in the Barents Sea. The Phase 4 report aim to provide concrete guidance for the industry within selected priority topics.
The final (phase 4) Barents 2020 report is now available. This report concludes the work of the Barents 2020 project.
The Phase 3 report (issued 2010) recommended 130 offshore standards for common use in the Barents Sea. Several of these standards needed added detailing and guidance. The Steering Committee for the Barents 2020 project therefore commissioned the final phase 4 report. In the report one will find that the lessons from the seven working groups have Pan-Arctic relevance. Some of the things one will find in the report are: recommendations and guidance to improve ISO 19906 as an Arctic design standard; best practice for ice management; recommendations on evacuation, escape and rescue; recommendations on working environment - which deliverables will be submitted to the newly established ISO Technical Committee 67, Sub Committee 8; Arctic Operations.
The phase 4 report is a sequel to, not a revision of, the phase 3 report. It is therefore recommended to read both and in the right order.
