Philosophy For Managing Risk in Arctic Operations
Probability of
failure
Arctic; severity of consequences drives risks
Risk Reduction
must take
place through
prevention

Risk Reduction are Usually Implemented Through a
Regulatory Regime: Arctic Regulations

Way Forward:
Circumpolar Knowledge Sharing
1. Share experience and results from international standards’ cooperation in Barents
2020.
2. Review of national /local regulatory process, as seen by regulator of host country.
3. Discuss safety regulatory approaches in light of Barents2020, the Macondo Accident,
and other recent events of relevance. Use lessons from the safety regulatory
approach of the North Sea.
