Offshore Oil and Gas

Offshore oil and gas platforms are high-value strategic assets, crucial to corporate operations and profitability, as well as to national economies and self-sufficiency. as vital as they are, they are  also extremely vulnerable to hostile actions.

Securing the physical infrastructure and the people who work on it are exceptionally complex

Offshore platforms’ isolation amidst vast expanses of open water and fast-changing weather conditions such as fog and storms, further, complicate every aspect of security and with their high-density infrastructure and highly flammable materials on the rig and below it, even a small-scale explosives-based attack could be catastrophic. Kidnap and smuggling are additional threats.


Protecting your offshore rig, support vessels and associated assets requires a comprehensive and adequately provisioned security program.

Planning must be based on a deep understanding of the  threats and  of your operational and  commercial priorities, so that risk mitigation measures are balanced with operational goals.
