Oil & Gas UK Guidlines for relief well planning, competency

Three new publications from Well Lifecycle Practices Forum distill OSPRAG recommendations.

Oil and Gas UK kindly provided Oil IT Journal with review copies of three new publications—Guidelines on relief well planning for subsea wells, Guidelines on competency for well personnel and an Example competency profile.

The relief well planning guide was produced by the well lifecycle practices forum (WLPF) and covers compliance with the UK’s oil pollution preparedness response regulations. These now mandate advance relief well planning. The 22 page document provides a top level checklist of well complexity assessment, relief well design and planning.

The competency guidelines, also from the WLPF, distill the recommendations of the oil spill prevention and response advisory group (OSPRAG) in a 30 page document. The Example profile is another 30 pages. The guidelines strike a fair balance between narrative and checklist, are well written and relatively acronym free. More from Oil and Gas UK.
