2021 COS Annual Performance Report

When: Thursday, September 22, 2022 - 9:00 - 10:30am CST

What: The COS Annual Performance Report (APR) for 2021 provides an accounting of safety-related incidents and events at facilities operating on the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf (OCS).  

 COS Members voluntarily submit data for the APR to support COS’ mission to provide the highest level of safety for the U.S. offshore natural gas and oil industry.   In 2021, members of the Center for Offshore Safety (COS) saw an increase in offshore work hours – up 11MIL over 2020 – representing 73% of all U.S. Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) activity.   This increase in the number of hours worked was not at the expense of safety.  In fact, as you’ll see in this report, COS members had fewer serious incidents in 2021 vs 2020.

Through the analysis of data presented in the 2021 APR, COS strives to identify areas for improvement in the management of risk through safety management systems for the operation of offshore wells, projects, and production facilities on the U.S. OCS.
