An oil and gas safety industry leader has pledged its support to Oil & Gas UK’s efficiency task force, saying improvements are “urgently needed” to help sustain North Sea activity.

Michael Tzoivelekis, the regional segment manager of Dräger Marine and Offshore, which has a base in Aberdeen, has said he “fully supports” the idea of a task force focusing on behavioural change within the industry.

The efficiency task force is supported by Oil & Gas UK and its industry members, and is aiming to encourage co-operation and focus on initiatives that add “real value” for the sector.

Michail Tzouvelekis said: “The approach to drive improvement, looking at business processes, standardisation and cooperation all fit with what we believe in here at Dräger. We strive to provide a holistic solution to enable companies to do things differently.

“We’re more than happy to have a conversation with companies that are looking to take steps to reduce costs and become more efficient, and we believe that being safe is by definition being more efficient.

“Depending on a company’s needs, we can share our expertise, resources and ideas to develop a long-term safety strategy which will ultimately reduce safety equipment inventories and standardise detection and protection across multiple offshore assets. This can save hundreds of thousands of pounds per year in operating expenditure.”
