The BP Task Force completed an initial survey of the units continuing to operate and concluded that each unit could safely continue to operate. All other facilities were then fully reviewed.
In the case of units that were shut down at the time of the audit any necessary corrective actions were implemented before units were restarted.
The review identified a number of areas within the Complex where standards were below BP’s high expectations but recognised that since the formation of the new Grangemouth Leadership Team in April 2000 standards across the Complex had already begun to be enhanced. However the BP Task Force identified a number of additional recommendations in order to further enhance standards and reduce the probability of a further major incident.
The BP Task Force covered recommendations that were Complex wide, unit specific and covered functional areas.
Complex wide recommendations covered the following general areas;
Unit specific recommendations covered the following areas;
Recommendations covered the following functional areas;
