||This report reviews the progress made with respect to the safety of tanker off-take on the United Kingdom continental shelf, based on the results of an earlier report covering the years 1997-1998 together with an analysis of the data from 1998 to 2001. It calculates of the hours of exposure and the frequencies of incident types. It concludes that there has been a 59% reduction in the expected frequency of collision between a shuttle tanker and floating production, storage and off-loading (FPSOs) platforms and floating storage units (FSUs). Nevertheless, there is clearly underreporting and blurring of the lines between normal operational procedures and emergency procedures on some vessels with respect to accidental disconnections.
