Visualisation of environmental risk


A software tool to assess and ensure acceptable environmental risk for offshore operations

The ERA Acute methodology was implemented as industry standard for environmental risk assessment (ERA) on the NCS in 2019, and the Collabor8 ERA Acute service is a desktop software application developed to support performing environmental risk assessments based on this methodology.

The service provides a software tool with relevant visualisation of the output results from the ERA Acute method, such as maps, graphs and tables. The tool has applications for environmental risk management, such as a risk matrix and a comparison tool which may support a spill impact mitigation analysis (SIMA) to evaluate that the best response is chosen to minimise impact of oil spills on people and the environment.
