Learning From Incidents • FIRE-FLASH FIRE OCCURRED WHILE WELDING-Contractor rigged up to run and set conductor pipe for use as a mouse hole. Hot work initiated, and gas test showed no signs of LEL. Welder was completing the 2nd weld when a flash fire occurred in the near by cellar (approximately 5’ away). There was no damaged to equipment or injuries to personnel. Additional information to follow as investigation is on going.
Learning From Incidents • FIRE – GAS IGNITES AT ROTATING HEAD. While modifying the flow-line, as the welder made his initial cut, gas that had accumulated in the flow line ignited at the rotating head. Manlift operator extinguished the flame. No injuries occurred.
Learning From Incidents Similarities: • Mixture of air and seeped gas resulted in flash fire during welding operations. • LEL tests were conducted prior to each operation, hazards of other possible “ignition sources” were not recognized.
Learning From Incidents • Rig Move Tom Swanson – Road Transport Lead
Introduction to the DROPS Prevention of Dropped Objects
Purpose • The purpose of Dropped Objects Prevention Scheme is to set out the mandatory requirements to prevent harm to personnel and damage to equipment from dropped objects in the execution of Shell’s drilling, completion and well intervention activities.
What is DROPS? • The Dropped Objects Prevention Scheme is designed to: • eliminate dropped objects from our business; • prevent harm to people from dropped objects; • prevent damage to equipment from dropped objects
Who is DROPS for? All managers and supervisors All drilling, completion and well intervention staff and contractors
What is the objective of the campaign? • To eliminate dropped object incidents by: • communicating the scale of the problem to everyone; • training key personnel on how to avoid dropped object incidents; • mobilising the workforce to play their part in eliminating the hazards; • complying with the mandatory DROPS requirements on a day to day basis on all sites Changing Behaviours
Definition of a dropped object • Dropped objects derive their capability for damage and harm from the conversion of their potential energy to kinetic energy prior to impact. • Potential harm to people is calculated via a DROPS calculator, which can be used to assess the impact of a dropped object.
Classification of Dropped Objects • HIPO Definition: • An unplanned HSE event (incident or near miss) which has the potential severity to cause permanent disablement or death. • HIPOs will be restricted to high potential with respect to consequences on people and will include all significant dropped objects and violation of Life Saving Rules. • For the purpose of focusing prevention and elimination strategies dropped or potential dropped objects are classified as either static or dynamic. • Static Dropped Object: • A static dropped object is a solid object, initially at rest, that falls from its original position under its own weight. Examples of static dropped objects include nut dislodged in rig derrick, fallen cable tray due to failed (corroded) fastenings. • Dynamic Dropped Object • A dynamic dropped object is a solid object that breaks free from its fastenings due to the applied force from the impact of some other equipment or a moving object. Examples of dynamic dropped objects include the top drive hitting the rig floor, a stand of drill pipe falling across the derrick and hitting and breaking a light resulting in the light falling to the rig floor.
Prevention of Dropped Objects Manual – EP 2009-9039 Each principle has a series of mandatory requirements
DROPS Campaign Topics Campaign Topics Tools at Height Red Zones and No Go Zones Tubular handling Lifting and hoisting Job safety analysis Handling lubricators and tool strings Deliverables per topic Awareness videos (language free) Posters Quick reference cards Articles for internal and external newsletters Presentation for safety meetings/training packs
Forbidden Equipment and Practices Numerous incidents have occurred as a result of misuse of equipment, lack of maintenance or misplaced creativity by individuals trying to get the job done. To avoid such incidents, the following high risk items are forbidden. Uncertified lifting equipment including ‘home made’ lifting devices. Surface drill pipe filters. Use of hammers with wooden handles at height. Bolts secured with a double nut arrangement. Use of welding rods/wire/tie wraps instead of properly engineered split pins or safety pins. Use of hooks on any part of the rigging on winch lines and stabbing board. Slings wrapped around derrick/mast beams. Unsecured water bottles, grease tubes/guns, etc.. Drifting stands in the derrick without a formally documented procedure and JSA detailing how the No-Go or Red Zones will be controlled.
Examples of unacceptable conditions Loose full water bottle at crown Ineffectively secured equip at crown Severely corroded lifting eyes No crown sheave bumper block Badly corroded socket at crown Badly corroded handrail at crown Redundant and non-safety type shackle Some loose items retrieved Some loose items retrieved
What is the role of the Drops Focal Points?

KEANE-LOPC, Incident Review – Description • While changing fuel filters on the compressor skid, an employee inadvertently opened an oil fill valve coming off the oil storage tank. The valve was closed as soon as it was noticed that oil was leaking out onto the secondary containment. It was estimated that approximately 4-6 gallons of the compressor oil had leaked onto the containment. Employees immediately notified the HS&E rep on-site and cleaned up the spill with absorbent pads and sawdust.
KEANE-LOPC, Incident Review – Causal Factors • Due to the design of the piping coming off the bottom of the tank, it was possible for personnel walking near the skid to accidently strike the closed valve with a leg or any object being carried, opening the valve to atmosphere. A “spigot” valve had been installed downstream of the main control valve but it had been left open at the time, allowing stored oil to flow onto the containment once the valve was opened. Had the “spigot” been closed the spill would not have occurred.
KEANE-LOPC, Incident Review – Corrective Actions • Upon further review and discussion with the Drilling Superintendent, it was decided that the bolt through the “safety closure” would be a temporary fix until all of the oil currently in the storage tank was drained out. Once the tank has been emptied, the piping will be removed and the drain holes in the tank are to be plugged or the tanks removed all together. If, at some point it is determined that the storage tanks will continue to be used, once the stored oil is completely drained, the plumbing on the tanks is to be redesigned to prevent any spill of this nature in the future. The piping should be arranged so that if there is any spill, it will be contained within the primary containment pan on the compressor skid.
REPORT OUT FROM PREVIOUS FORUM – Highlights • Attendees: 1 • 1 Senior Management/Operations • 1 Senior HSE Representative • 1 Line Supervisor (rotate in to observe and provide field input) • Timeline: • Same ½ day schedule but moved to middle of month and on Wed • Breakout Sessions will generate reports at the next meeting. Actions from these reports will be implemented with progress given monthly • Facilitation of the meeting to be rotated monthly
BREAKOUT SESSION • Loss Of Primary Containment? • What immediate steps can be taken to prevent LOPC and when? • What are some long range plans (training, awareness programs, etc) that we can implement and when?
Closing, Ask Yourself Why don’t workers follow safety rules and procedures? • Safety is someone else’s job/responsibility • Safety is not a core value at (Your Company) • Safety is miss-understood • Workers are not held accountable for safety • Workers have a poor attitude towards safety
QUESTIONS? • Open Discussion/ Q&A • Next Forum: March 16th
