This proposed rule would amend and update the Subpart H, Oil and Gas ProductionSafety Systems regulations. Subpart H has not had a major revision since it was first published in 1988. Since that time, much of the oil and gas production on the OCS hasmoved into deeper waters and the regulations have not kept pace with the technologicaladvancements.These regulations address issues such as production safety systems, subsurface safetydevices, and safety device testing. These systems play a critical role in protectingworkers and the environment. The BSEE would make the following changes to SubpartH in this rulemaking:
Restructure the subpart to have shorter, easier-to-read sections based on thefollowing headings:
Surface and subsurface safety systems – Dry trees;
Subsea and subsurface safety systems – Subsea trees;
Production safety systems;
Additional production system requirements;
