Simonsen Vogt Wiig report for PSA on Arctic HSE
On behalf of the Petroleum Safety Authority of Norway with financial support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, a team from SVW under the leadership of Bjørn-Erik Leerberg has researched and prepared a report with a comparative analysis of the use of standards to further safety in offshore petroleum operations in the Arctic. The team has also consisted of Børge Alsvik, Frode A. Berntsen and Elaine Aarkvisla.
SVW has a strong professional team working with marine-related industries and ocean space both nationally and internationally, and has a long tradition of assisting Norwegian and foreign authorities with analysis, legal advice and regulatory development.
We thank PSA for having confidence in our ability to undertake such a complex assignment and hope the report may contribute to further cooperation, regulatory development and increased awareness of health, safety and the environment challenges and exposures associated with human activities in the Arctic.
