IOGP Well Control Incident Lesson Sharing

The International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (IOGP) Well Control Incident lesson sharing system was established as a means of notifying IOGP members and the wider community of the lessons learned from well control incidents and near misses. The sharing of these lessons will help to promote learning and avoid the repetition of similar errors. The result will move the industry to a higher level of well control safety.

All IOGP Well Control Incident lessons can be viewed on the IOGP website here.

Weak Signals Video and Scripts

The Weak Signals video is intended to be used during a rig-based safety meeting for personnel involved in managing Wells Process Safety. It is intended to be used to facilitate discussions, relevant to both the individuals, the team and the rig.

The video has 6 different scenes and includes voices of key individuals involved with controlling process safety. After each scene there are some questions which can be discussed by the audience, so the instructor can stop the video after each scene to facilitate the discussion. The facilitators guide is available to download here.

It is suggested that drilling contractors, service providers and operator personnel use this resource. Group size is expected to be around 10-12 people, but you may want to break into smaller groups for the discussion.

The video last 17 minutes without discussion. The total time of the exercise including the video and discussion is approximately 1 hour.
