DNV GL introduces rules for US fishing vessels to increase safety

gl dnvThe fishing vessel industry fatality rate is 30 times higher than the average of all US industries. To address this, US legislation requires that all new fishing vessels bigger than 50 feet must be built to classification rules. DNV GL is the only classification society to develop rules specifically for the US domestic fishing fleet, addressing how fishing vessels are designed, built and maintained for safety.

“The United States is the fifth largest fishing nation in the world, with approximately 110,000 commercial vessels. This means that there are more than a hundred thousand US fishermen who have their daily work in fishing vessels that often operate in harsh conditions and rough weather. All new vessels built to DNV GL’s class rules will be safer,” says Joar Bengaard who leads DNV GL’s initiative for US fishing vessels from the US HQ in Houston, Texas.

ENISan Donato Milanese (Milan), 16 March 2015 – Eni has completed post drilling studies on the Merakes-1 gas finding, located in the Indonesia deep offshore East Sepinggan Block, which indicates significant upside gas potential. Eni is the operator of the East Sepinggan Block with an 85% interest.

The new studies upgrade the potential of Merakes from previously estimated 1.3 TCF up to 2 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of gas in place. The well was drilled in October 2014 in 1,372 metres water depth, encountering a 60 meter section of high quality sandstones. Eni will bring forward the appraisal programme to evaluate the possible fast track development of the finding, optimizing synergies with the near Jangkrik field, also operated by Eni.

The East Sepinggan block is located offshore of East Kalimantan (Borneo), 170 kilometres south of Bontang LNG plant and just 35 kilometres south of Jangkrik field.

Eni has been operating in Indonesia since 2001 and currently holds a large portfolio of exploration, production and development assets which have an increasing importance in contributing to the overall growth of the company. Eni’s average equity production in the Country amounts to 17,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. … Continue Reading

IMO launches online surveys on ballast water management systems

IMO SmallAll stakeholders involved in the testing, approval, fitting and operation of ballast water management systems (BWMS) are being invited to complete online surveys, as a part of an International Maritime Organization (IMO) study to assess the implementation of the BWMS approval guidelines and the performance of type-approved systems.

The study aims to provide a comprehensive review of the technical standards and approval testing procedures in the Guidelines for approval of ballast water management systems (G8), initiated by IMO’s Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) at its 67th session in October 2014. The intention is to address concerns that the testing regime for approval of BWMS needs to be sufficiently robust and consistent, so that approved systems will meet the standards set out in the International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships’ Ballast Water and Sediments, 2004 (BWM Convention).

The surveys can be accessed at sites.google.com/a/wmu.se/d2study/​ and will remain open until 1 June 2015. The following are invited to participate: Administrations and associated agencies; test facilities, organizations and independent experts; BWMS developers, manufacturers and vendors; … Continue Reading
