Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) recently completed, one of the most challenging seismic acquisition survey covering three different terrain conditions (Land, Transition Zone and Marine), where the survey crew has to encounter lots of obstacles during the project execution phase. During the land acquisition activities, the survey covered most of the State of Kuwait urban areas including Kuwait city and the adjoining highly crowded/traffic congested areas. Fleets of more than 100 vehicles including heavy vehicles such as vibrator trucks were operating 24/7 in the State of Kuwait urban areas as part of survey programs. The project faced many challenges and one of the major challenge was to drive through the highly crowded/traffic congested areas and to cross all the major express highways & ring roads as part of project objective. By considering the State of Kuwait Road Accident frequency rate, it was evident that, a robust control measures is required in order to mitigate this high risk and to eliminate any motor vehicle accidents during the survey acquisition phase. Hence, Land Transportation had been ranked as no.1 Hazard during the initial planning stage of the seismic acquisition project. In order to mitigate the driving risk and to manage a fleet of more than 100 vehicles, a new initiative has been introduced.
This Abstract outlines one of the industry best HSE tool used to control and monitor a fleet of more than 100 vehicles through the Road Risk Analysis and GEO-Fencing on the vehicle VTS System.
The project was well planned & properly executed. The crew has successfully completed the urban operations (all the highly congested urban areas including the Kuwait city). The overall project performance in terms of motor vehicle accidents after its implementation remains @ Zero recordable Motor Vehicle Accidents after driving more than Four Million KMs inside urban areas. In addition, the project had been successfully completed with more than Six Million Man-hours of Operations without any Lost Time Injury (LTI).
