Sharing to be better #5

This incident highlights the importance of following procedures, attention to detail and quality control of calculations performed on the rig.

On initiative by OLF’s Drilling Managers Forum, a joint industry task force of Operator and Drilling Contractor personnel was established to focus on ways to reduce the number and the potential severity of well control events on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

One of the recommendations from the task force is to communicate actual well control incidents that have recently occurred on the NCS so lessons are shared and understood. This is the fifth in a series of case histories. (The first was circulated October 2010 and the second, third and fourth February May and October 2011).

The key message is to focus on what can be learnt from such events. It is hoped that sharing of such incidents will be helpful in our efforts to avoid or reduce the likelihood and severity of well incidents. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated by the task force.
