NASA, BSEE Forge Partnership to Address Offshore Operations Risks

Offshore-drilling-AFPNASA and the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement have entered an agreement that seeks to employ the aeronautics industry’s risk management practices in offshore operations in the Outer Continental Shelf.

NASA said Friday it will lend to BSEE its probabilistic risk assessment technique and related technologies from the Johnson Space Center failure analysis laboratory under the five-year agreement.

“​Both BSEE ​and NASA work in harsh and uncompromising environments, relying on cutting edge technology to go deeper and further than previously thought possible,” said BSEE Director Brian Salerno.

Salerno added the partnership will gather technical experts from both parties that will seek ways to strengthen protection for offshore workers and the environment.

“Whether the mission takes one to deep space, or into the deep ocean, the analysis of the environment, training of personnel and risk mitigation methods are similar,” said Jack James, Johnson center’s technology transfer strategist.
