Peter Carr

Operations Advisor

Peter Carr has exceptionally strong experience in quantitative risk assessment and in the development of risk solutions based on custom simulations. His work involved numerous, qualitative and quantitative risk and reliability studies, and engineering optimization studies, for subsea, surface and onshore developments. In the 1980s, he pioneered risk-based inspection and simulation techniques for risk-based decision-making. After the Piper Alpha disaster in 1988, Mr. Carr spent the next decade working in topsides process safety, helping develop and improve the then-new safety and risk analysis methodologies, including fire and explosion analysis, smoke and gas dispersion analysis, temporary refuge integrity studies, egress, evacuation, escape and rescue analysis, ship collision studies, emergency systems survivability assessment, and dropped object studies. In addition to performing numerous desktop studies, he has been Risk Manager on the design team for major projects including the Chevron Alba topsides, Elf Frøy platform, Kerr McGee Gryphon FPSO, BP Schïehallion FPSO, BP Magnus EOR pipelines, Shell Malampaya pipelines, and BP Mardi Gras deepwater pipelines. He was a member of the API 17N committee on reliability, technical risk and integrity management for subsea production systems as well as served as an expert witness on the subject of risk-based inspection. He is a Chartered Civil and Structural Engineer.
