Hydrocarbon Releases in the North Sea for 2012

Graham Marshall - Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Hydrocarbon releases in the UK sector of the North Sea reached a record low last year according to new figures from the Health and Safety Executive (UK HSE).

There were 97 incidents reported to the UK HSE in 2012.

This is down from 133 reported incidents in 2011 and continuing a long-term downward trend.

The figures reveal a 48 per cent reduction in the number of hydrocarbon releases over the last three years – just short of the target the industry set itself in 2010 to halve releases.

The target was set following pressure from the UK HSE to improve performance.

In 2009 there were 187 hydrocarbon releases, of which 86 were classified as significant or major (84 significant and two major).
