REPORT ON INCREMENTAL COST FOR MOBILE OFFSHORE DRILLING UNITS OPERATIONS ON THE NORWEGIAN CONTINENTAL SHELF

Dear Magne,

It is with profuse apologies I finally attach our operational review of the above document. I hope the response is not too late to be of value to you.

As you can see we have constructed the response to address each of the Regulatory matters raised in the report. We have cross referenced against the summary tables in Appendix 1 of the report. Where there is UK legislation which is relevant it is quoted and the last column contains information as to the UK approach to the particular requirement.

As you can see in may instances the requirement would be expected on the UKCS. Its other cases we are prepared to accept other standards than those prescribed or broadly equivalent standards.

I hope that this is helpful. If you require any clarification please contact me. Apologies again for the delay but as you are aware the changes taking place in the Division and Directorate have placed considerable demands on our resources.

Yours sincerely

IT Whewell
