Abstract: Ensuring high levels of safety in the European offshore oil and gas industry is of paramount importance to the European Commission and to the Member States. To this purpose, Directive 2013/30/EU (also known as Offshore Safety Directive) introduced new safety requirements, and imposed additional duties on both the offshore industry and EU regulators. In particular, Article 29 of Directive 2013/30/EU requires Member States to prepare, in cooperation with the relevant operators or owners and, as appropriate, licensees and the competent authority, external emergency response plans covering all offshore oil and gas installations or connected infrastructure and potentially affected areas within their jurisdiction. The workshop on External Emergency Response Planning – supported by the European Commission's Directorate General for Energy (DG ENER) – was jointly organised by Directorate General Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the Italian Ministry of Economic Development (Directorate General for Safety of Mining and Energy Activities – National Mining Office for Hydrocarbons and Geo-resources) in collaboration with the Italian Coast Guard. The event was the first workshop to be held under the Virtual Centre of Offshore Safety Expertise, and it covered one of the topics of primary interest to the Member States to guarantee high levels of safety and environmental protection in the EU waters. The workshop was held on April 5th-7th April, 2017 at the premises of the Italian Coast Guard in Ravenna, Italy. The objectives of the workshop were fully achieved. The JRC launched a survey just after the event and the feedback received from participants was excellent.
