Abstract
Extract:Offshore petroleum activities are undertaken in some of the most hostile environments on earth. The facilities involved have to withstand not only the extremes of weather, tide and current, but also the temperatures and pressures of the volatile substances that they produce – oil and gas. Those same facilities must also provide living accommodation for the workforce in a relatively restricted space. Together these factors create a potentially harsh and unforgiving working environment.
