Abstract

Floating storage facility offers one unique and innovative solution for new installation in offshore crude oil industry. However, the system will easily contribute to potential hazards or risks that are difficult to quantify due to shortness of experience. This article gives an overview of the potential hazards during normal activity and relevant safety impact to personnel, asset and environment. The study applied Risk Assessment approach to measure potential hazard levels. Survey on 157 employees of 4 floating oil storage facilities were analysed with methodological tools of ANOVA One Way, T-Test and Pearson Correlation to evince linkage between potential hazard and safety impact. The result showed that there is significant and yet low level of relationship between potential hazards and safety impact. The findings from the collected experience-based and research survey data can be applied to facilitate the development of rationalized approaches for top management in decision-making on the safety guideline, policy making and investment towards the floating storage facility.
