2020 has been a hurricane season we all can agree we wish had never happened. For many operators with assets in the Gulf of Mexico and its inlets subject to 49 CFR 192.612 and 195.413, there has been not only a named storm, but several named storms that crossed those assets. You did your initial inspection for damage under 49 CFR 195.414, but has your risk profile changed?
Now with this very active hurricane season coming to an end, it is a good time for you really cool people to make plans to evaluate how these numerous storms may have impacted your shallow water pipelines and if their risk profiles have changed. The number and proximity of hurricanes are typically the largest inputs for the risk profiles. In addition to the latest storm data tabulated by the National Hurricane Center, RCP’s proprietary Underwater Inspection Interval Risk Model analyzes key operator information as well as National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration charts and state game and fisheries department maps for additional hazards and associated risks.
