Course overview

Drilling Optimisation - Loss Avoidance Workshop
This workshop offers action-packed discussions and exercises aimed at analyzing, investigating, and evaluating hazards that contribute to lost time within well operations. You will learn how to optimize resources and avoid loss in key areas of well operations.

Participants are encouraged to SEE (Safe, Effective and Efficient)  change in people's approach:

  • Through the integration of MLT and loss control standards into existing management systems within the workplace.
  • By broadening knowledge and understanding of MLT and loss control principles to be applied.
  • Enhanced ability to 'Instruct, Standardise, Measure, Evaluate, and Succeed' in regards to all well's
    operational hazards, risks and loss time exposure within the workplace.
  • To change people through the application and development of MLT and loss control leadership skills required in the management and control of today's complex wells.

The course is designed for

This experience is suited to anyone in an onshore/offshore well operational or support role. The workshop training is an extension of loss control methods and principles developed in the 1960's in steel mills. This format was adapted by other industries e.g. Aviation, Automobile, Transportation, Railroads, and Maritime businesses. Learn how this has evolved and is applied in well operations.

Course objectives

From the loss/waste resulting, participants are then tasked to review the physical, paper and human evidence of the problem areas identified that 'go wrong'. The goal is to enable the participant to determine and evaluate both recommendations and corrective actions required. The delivery objective to SEE, the step-change that can be achieved using MLT™ controls and metrics as outlined in the workshop.
The objectives of this workshop are to enable participants to:

  • Recognize and analyze the true and evident extent of the physical 'loss and waste' that exists within well operations.
  • Determine and evaluate what the benefits are by applying the 'knowledge and managing lost time' delivery approach can achieve.
  • A primary objective is to change the way people approach challenges, using the MLT methods and metrics.

Using adult learning methods, this workshop enables participants through the use of selective MLT™ principles, practices, tools, and metrics to apply and integrate these within existing management systems and daily work. These principles of loss control 'Instructions, Standards, Measurements, Evaluation and Success' methods offer a more targeted focus than existing managed systems. Participants are actively encouraged to share personal operational damage, failure and lost time events and experiences, and to learn from both recommendations and corrective actions that resulted.
