KPIs used in the UK Offshore Oil and Gas Industry


KPIs Performance Measurement Oil and Gas Industry

The UK offshore oil and gas industry is regulated by the Offshore Division (OSD) of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) of the United Kingdom. The regulator has emphasized the importance of the industry’s safety performance based on health and safety issues and activities that drive or affect industry performance.

In order to properly monitor and prepare against major hazards and accidents the UK offshore oil and gas industry has set in place a major hazard KPI scheme. Originally implemented in 1992, the scheme has been significantly altered between 2004 and 2007 when HSE, under the heading of Key Programme 3 (KP3), conducted a focused sequence of Asset Integrity inspections.

The findings of the inspections revealed that the industry did not have reliable key performance indicators (KPIs) implemented to measure asset integrity and provide guarantees regarding the effectiveness of major hazard management actions. A selection of technically proficient individuals was assembled from across the industry in order to identify proper asset integrity KPIs and create a functional industry-wide KPI scheme. Based on their proceedings and research, the industry implemented, in 2009, three KPIs that were to be measured by all companies activating in the industry:KPI Oil and Gas
  1. KPI-1: Hydrocarbon releases
  2. KPI-2: Verification non-compliance
  3. KPI-3: Safety-critical maintenance backlog

In the last reporting period, the KPI scheme had 21 participating companies that provide data from over 80% of all UK offshore oil and gas industry installations. Data is submitted by the companies on a quarterly basis to the Oil & Gas UK and the staff at the governmental institution prepares a report based on a range of indicators. Meetings are also held on a quarterly basis in order to review the gathered data. As a bonus, the companies involved in the process also used the reports in order to benchmark their performance against industry competitors based on industry KPIs.
