Mieke Kosters (Shell) Process Safety in drilling wells – the importance of subsurface standards


From deepwater blowout prevention to fraccing, the focus on subsurface safety aspects of our industry remains at an all-time high. When it comes to designing wells and projects, subsurface data and its interpretation provide a key building block to safety. Getting it wrong can have major safety, environmental, economic and reputational implications.

In 2013 Shell introduced eleven global subsurface standards to achieve a reduction in HSE exposure by standardizing subsurface requirements. High level industry incidents high light the importance of especially high quality pore pressure/fracture gradient prediction, formation top prediction, and geohazard assessment. Examples of key requirements will be discussed.
