Offshore oil and gas safety and security in the Asia Pacific

Power resources Pacific Area Asia

This monograph explores the safety and security risks associated with the massive expansion of offshore oil and gas exploration and exploitation activity in the Asia-Pacific region. The pursuit of national and commercial objectives is generating the convergence of wider interests and uncertainties, and therefore significant and often shared risks. Risk mitigating options for action are presented that need to be urgently and collaboratively considered by all stakeholders.

The monograph makes extensive reference to Australian offshore oil and gas regulation in drawing comparisons with what is happening in other parts of our region.
