Annex 3 - Commission Implementing Regulation no. 1112/2014 of 13 October 2014

Annex 3 to Executive Order No. 1196 of 9 October 2015 issued by the Ministry of Employment - unofficial version

Commission Implementing Regulation no. 1112/2014 of 13 October 2014
COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) No 1112/2014
of 13 October 2014
determining a common format for sharing of information on major hazard indicators by the operators and owners of offshore oil and gas installations and a common format for the publication of the information on major hazard indicators by the Member States
(Text with EEA relevance)


EUROPEAN COMMISSION
Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,
Having regard to Directive 2013/30/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 June 2013 on safety of offshore oil and gas operations and amending Directive 2004/35/EC (1), and in particular Articles 23(2) and 24(2)
thereof,
Whereas:

(1) Member States are required to ensure that operators and owners of offshore oil and gas installations provide the competent authority, as a minimum, with the data on major hazard indicators as specified in Annex IX to Directive 2013/30/EU. That information should enable Member States to provide advanced warning of the potential deterioration of safety and environmentally critical barriers, and should enable them to take preventive action, including in light of their obligations under Directive 2008/56/EC of the European Parliament and the
Council (Marine Strategy Framework Directive)2).

(2) The information should also demonstrate the overall effectiveness of measures and controls implemented by individual operators and owners, and the industry as a whole, to prevent major accidents and to minimise risks
for the environment. In addition, the information and data provided should ensure that the performance of individual operators and owners can be compared within the Member State and the performance of the industry
as a whole can be compared between Member States.

(3) The sharing of comparable data between Member States is rendered difficult and unreliable due to the lack of a common data reporting format across all Member States. A common format for the reporting of data by operators and owners to the Member State should provide transparency of the safety and environmental performance of operators and owners and should provide Union-wide comparable information on safety of offshore oil and gas operations and should facilitate dissemination of lessons learned from major accidents and
near misses.

(4) To facilitate public confidence in the authority and integrity of offshore oil and gas operations in the Union, Member States should periodically publish the information referred to in point 2 of Annex IX of Directive 2013/30/EU pursuant to Article 24 of Directive 2013/30/EU. A common format and details of information to be made publicly available by the Member States should enable easy cross-border comparison of data.

(5) The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Advisory Committee on Safety of Offshore Oil and Gas Operations,

1) OJ L 178, 28.6.2013, p. 66.
2) Directive 2008/56/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 June 2008 establishing a framework for community action I the field of marine environmental policy (Marine Strategy Framework Directive) (OJ L 164, 25.6.2008, p. 19).

HAVE ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1 - Objective and scope

This Regulation specifies common formats in relation to:
a) reports from operators and owners of offshore oil and gas installations to competent authorities of Member States in accordance with Article 23 of Directive 2013/30/EU;
b) publication of information by Member States in accordance with Article 24 of Directive 2013/30/EU.

Article 2 - Reporting reference and remittance dates

1. Operators and owners of offshore oil and gas installations shall submit the report referred to in Article 1(a) within 10 working days of the event.
2. The reporting period for information referred to in Article 1(b) shall be each year from 1 January until 31 December, starting as of the calendar year 2016. The common publication format shall be used to publish the information required in Article 24 of Directive 2013/30/EU on the website of the competent authority not later than 1 June of the year following the reporting period
3. The formats set out in Annexes I and II shall be used for the reports and publication referred to in points (a) and (b) of Article 1 respectively.

Article 3 - Details of information to be shared

Annex I sets out the details of information to be shared in accordance with point 2 of Annex IX of Directive 2013/30/EU.

Article 4 - Entry into force 

This Regulation shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Event categorisation (2)

What type of event is being reported? (More than one option might be chosen)

 A. Unintended release of oil, gas or other hazardous substances, whether or not ignited:

  1. any unintentional release of ignited gas or oil on or from an offshore installation
  2. The unintentional release on or from an offshore installation of
    a. not ignited natural gas or evaporated associated gas if mass released ≥ 1 kg
    b. not ignited liquid of petroleum hydrocarbon if mass released ≥ 60 kg
  3. The unintentional release or escape of any hazardous substance, for which the major accident risk has been assessed in the report on major hazards, on or from an offshore installation, including wells and returns of drilling additives.

 B. Loss of well control requiring actuation of well control equipment, or failure of a well barrier requiring its replacement or repair:

  1. Any blowout, regardless of the duration
  2. The coming into operation of a blowout prevention or diverter system to control flow of well fluids
  3. The mechanical failure of any part of a well, whose purpose is to prevent or limit the effect of the unintentional release of fluids from a well or a reservoir being drawn on by a well, or whose failure would cause or contribute to such a release
  4. The taking of precautionary measures additional to any already contained in the original drilling programme where a planned minimum separation distance between adjacent wells was not maintained.
    _______
    (2) According to Annex IX of Directive 2013/30/EU.

 C. Failure of safety and environmental-critical element:
Any loss or non-availability of a SECE requiring immediate remedial action.

 D. Significant loss of structural integrity, or loss of protection against the effects of fire or explosion, or loss of station keeping in relation to a mobile installation:
Any detected condition that reduces the designed structural integrity of the installation, including stability, buoyancy and station keeping, to the extent that this requires immediate remedial action.

 E. Vessels on collision course and actual vessel collisions with an offshore installation:
Any collision, or potential collision, between a vessel and an offshore installation with has, or would have, enough energy to cause sufficient damage to the installation and/or vessel, to jeopardise the overall structural or process integrity.

 F. Helicopter accidents, on or near offshore installations:
Any collision, or potential collision, between a helicopter and an offshore installation.

 G. Any fatal accident to be reported under the requirements of Directive 92/91/EEC

 J. A major environmental incident:
Any major environmental incident as defined in Article 2(1)(d) and Article 2(37) of Directive 2013/30/EU

Remarks

If the incident falls into one of the above-mentioned categories, the operator/owner shall proceed to the relevant section(s), hence a single incident could result in completing multiple sections. The operator/owner shall submit the
filled in sections to the competent authority within 10 working days of the event, using the best information available at that time. If the event reported is a major accident, the Member State shall initiate a thorough investigation in
accordance with Article 26 of Directive 2013/30/EU.

Fatalities and serious injuries are reported under the requirements of Directive 92/91/EEC.

Helicopter incidents are reported under CAA regulations. If a helicopter accident occurs in relation to Directive 2013/30/EU, section F shall be completed.

Taking into account Member States' obligations to maintain or achieve Good Environmental Status under Directive 2008/56/EC (3), if an unintended release of oil, gas or other hazardous substance, or the failure of a safety and
environmental-critical element results in or is likely to result in degradation of the environment, such impacts should be reported to the competent authorities.
