Two multi-national oil and gas operating companies have signed up to receive 24-hour, 365-days-per-year emergency support from a newly opened Aberdeen-based incident management center (IMC), a news release stated.
Altor Risk Group will provide modern crisis management facilities and services to BG’s North Sea operations and Talisman’s West Africa operations from £250,000 (US $397,875) emergency response hub.
The center will provide round the clock support to companies in the event of an emergency situation, including a pool of specialist responders, effective practical training exercises and simulations, advice, and consultancy.
Facilities at Altor’s incident management center include a high-specification emergency response control room facility, using the latest communications and management technologies, and associated support services for companies operating in challenging environments on and offshore in the North Sea and beyond.
As part of the service, global asset tracking and command, control, and information management software systems allow responders to make decisions based on real-time information, and log every step of an incident to ensure lessons can be learned at every stage, according to Altor.
The company has recruited some experienced incident management and emergency response operatives in the country to run and staff the center.
Crisis management and logistics specialist Andrew Couper, a former British Army staff officer who has more than 25 years' experience in emergency planning and managing emergency response control rooms, has been appointed center manager.
