An unavoidable truth

The importance of offshore assets to our economic and energy infrastructure inevitably makes them high-value targets. Given current international security concerns, this is a fact that cannot be ignored, and the threat is ever present.

While there have been few successful terrorist attacks targeting offshore platforms to date, emphasis on prevention and response has never been stronger.

Operators that 'make the connection' will undoubtedly boost prevention and whole-site protection. Offshore assets – fixed or floating – may not be able to prevent physical incursions, but the technology now available ensures crew or dedicated security teams are better equipped to monitor waters and identify potential threats at significant distance. This enables response protocols to be activated much earlier, including requests for response or support teams to be deployed.
