These Guidelines for Contaminants and Chemical Additions are produced by OGUK, the leading representative organisation for the UK offshore oil and gas industry. They were written by the Terminals Work Group, a subset of the Production Efficiency Task Force which aims to facilitate industry efforts to increase production efficiency.
The intention of this guidance document is raising the awareness of contaminants and additions in pipeline systems in order to minimize negative consequences for shippers, at an individual and cumulative level. Negative events include safety and environmental impacts associated with a ‘loss of containment’ event, reduced PE due to unplanned outages, and/or financial penalties. In certain circumstances, where a downstream product/facility is contaminated, the financial liabilities can be substantial and often “unlimited”.
