Prevention of HC leaks

Starting in early 1990s with focus on HC leaks on the Frigg field, the interest in analysis of circumstances and root causes of HC leaks has continued and been further developed through many years work with PSA’s Risk Level Project (RNNP), and lately for several years work for the Norwegian Oil and Gas with Reduction of HC leaks. The number of HC leaks has been reduced almost by a factor of 10 during this period, the scientific production of papers has on the other hand increased considerably.
