Six years after the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig incident, has safety and environmental protection of offshore oil and gas drilling in US waters improved? Lloyd’s Register believes improvements have been made. Expertise in health, safety, and environment (HSE) best practice and regulations is adding value to American drillers and operators in their efforts to mitigate and manage their HSE risks.
The Environmentally Friendly Drilling (EFD) program presents the EFD Virtual Drilling Rig website, a free online interactive educational tool to help foster environmental awareness in the mindset of oil and gas employees and to assist in workforce development. The program uses gaming software to allow the user to tour a rig and identify, through hot spots, attributes that improve environment or safety performance.
