Challenges that Diving and ROV Client Representatives faced during operations

The need for Client Representatives

A lot is at stake in the onshore / offshore oil & gas industry where multimillion dollar projects are initiated, often in international waters. These projects commonly include operations such as subsea drilling, exploration and construction. These activities are often carried out in a hostile work environment where people and equipment are continually exposed to hazards, from the natural environment, operational activities and human factors.

It is imperative to maintain the highest standards of safety and operational efficiency at all times. But how do we ensure the contractor engaged by the client will ‘play by the book’ and carry out the project in accordance with the contract? Who will take the responsibility of communication and coordination between client and contractor? There are several questions but one definitive answer: the Client Worksite Representative.

Role & Responsibilities

Client Worksite Representatives play a fundamental role in the efficient execution and successful delivery of an onshore or offshore project while upholding the ethos of the client’s organisation. They act as the ‘eyes and ears’ of the Client Company and work to protect client’s best business interests. As such, they shoulder the responsibility of a multitude of tasks that include:

  • Provide effective leadership, maintain a sense of camaraderie and infuse morale and motivation among the entire offshore team
  • Ensure that efficient planning, and operational activities are conducted in accordance with the contract and report on the day-to-day operations
  • Ensure compliance with clients, industry and project related Health & Safety issues
  • Ensure compliance with National & International regulations and guidelines
  • Submit comprehensive daily reports to the client focal representative

And many more….
