The consequences of ship collisions with an oil rig, offshore installation or platform can be far more expensive in relation to safety, environment and costs of damage. The damage due to a single incident of an Oil Rig Collision can be catastrophic due to the number of people on board and the added risk of explosion. However, the existing rules and regulations of collisions prevention are insufficient. The purpose of this article is to critically evaluate the risk of ships collisions with offshore platforms and installations and therefore propose an international regulation for the preventions of this type of collisions.
