About the project
The RIO project (Interdisciplinary Risk Assessment in Integrated Operations addressing Human and Organisational Factors) aims at developing new knowledge (theories, models) and frameworks for reasoning, as a basis and platform for risk assessment in relation to petroleum production in an integrated operations (IO) environment, and to provide guidance on the practical use of these results to relevant practitioners in the petroleum industry.
The key question to be addressed in the project is how to assess and express risk in an IO environment by an interdisciplinary approach.
The project is sponsored by the PETROMAKS program of the Norwegian Research Council; the Norwegian Petroleum Safety Authority; and the Center for Integrated Operations in the Petroleum Industry at NTNU. The project period is 2008-11.
The work is carried out in close cooperation between NTNU, MINES ParisTech and SINTEF.
