This publication is based around an analysis of an offshore COdispersion modelling exercise, carried out by the Health and Safety Laboratory for the Energy Institute. It provides a useful example from which individuals could develop further hazard models, and describes how some of the hazards might be mitigated. This document was produced to compliment the already published onshore version of this document: Technical guidance on hazard analysis for onshore carbon capture installations and onshore pipelines.

In addition it acts as a guide for the health and safety hazard analysis for offshore management of pipelines and platforms, where COwill be present as a part of carbon capture and storage (CCS) installations; communicate existing knowledge on pipeline and offshore facility design and operation; and identify areas of uncertainty where existing knowledge cannot be applied with sufficient confidence, considering the scale and nature of expected CCS operations in the future.

This publication should supplement rather than substitute regulatory requirements, many of which are referenced within the text. The intention is to allow project developers and designers to meet their statutory obligations with increased certainty.

This publication provides information on:

  • CO2 hazard analysis, for both offshore facilities and pipelines.
  • Some design and operational considerations for offshore installations.
  • Some design and operational considerations for offshore pipelines.

This publication provides information for:

  • Project engineers and managers who are procuring new CCS installations and pipelines.
  • Engineering designers involved in the design of offshore CCS installations.
  • CCS industry participants who wish to widen their knowledge of CCS technology and the properties of COrelevant to offshore installations.
  • Safety advisers and professionals who need to understand the pertinent properties and health and safety hazards of CO2.
