Astrimar - Qualification / Certification Proposal

Project summary

New technology is fundamental to creating a viable future for the oil and gas sector, yet the introduction of any new technology, be it product, tool or process, creates uncertainty. Astrimar is a leading consultancy providing assurance in the field of technical risk. Their study will enable the OGTC to develop a guidance framework for companies on how to confidently develop and introduce new technologies. This study is split into two distinct phases. The first phase will identify current certification practices, outlining their challenges, barriers and gaps; the second will outline a thorough technical qualification framework which will enable the OGTC to develop a faster, more effective technology qualification process.
