QA / QC Program to improve Safety & Integrity of all Wells:

The Equipment Integrity Assurance & Certification System is created with the target of Assuring Well Equipment Integrity before running in the well and therefore eliminating unforeseen equipment failures which extends the well life and improves well quality, performance and integrity. The equipment check list was initially developed to cover gas well equipment, however when it was proven successful and of added value on HSE & Operations the utilization was extended to equipment for all wells.

The system is been created to assure Equipment Integrity and eliminate equipment failures during any stage of well drilling and construction till the succesfull completion run and handover integral well as intended.

The system covers the preparation, inspection, and make up of equipment in town as follows:

  • Dimensional checks (ID's, OD's, Drift).

  • Visual/Calliper Thread Inspection.

  • Make-ups of accessories to Casing and Pup Joints.

  • Assemble Setting Tools to liner hangers and liner top packers and carry out all required tests.

  • Provide supporting pressure test charts / certificates for the made-up and assembled components.

  • Provide reference of all involved parties / personnel carried out and witnessed the activities.

  • Issue the equipment to the rig with Check List (Certificate), briefing all the actions implemented in town.

  • The Check List is signed by all participants & approved by Equipment & Service Team Leader (EQSTL) and Drilling Operations Team Leader (DROTL) as Single Point of Responsibility (SPA).
