Abstract Gas turbines are widely used offshore for a variety of purposes including power generation, compression, pumping and water injection. This report is primarily designed to provide information for HSE inspectors in safety assessments, incident investigations and prior to site visits. It provides a detailed assessment of gas turbines and major driven equipment installed on offshore installations, focussing on maintenance issues. The applications, systems and components of gas turbines are reviewed. Guidance is given on maintenance issues typical for different systems. Summaries are given of database information on the turbines installed on installations in the British sector of the North Sea, together with recent incident and accident data. Recent experience and information from operators is also reviewed.
