Mutual Aid for Source Control Mutual Aid has previously been brought to bear for oil spills, natural disasters and fire. Step change in domestic E&P industry for well containment. Consistency is key to all organizations involved
Mutual Aid for Well Containment • Immediate assistance of personnel and equipment • Response Teams • Relief Well • Containment Ops • Flow Engineering • SIMOPS • Flowback • Access to specialized equipment and technical expertise of personnel • Contractual agreement defines responsibilities and liabilities for members
Additionally • Standardized policies, procedures for the mutual aid response. • Generic plan • Standard Notification processes • Equipment and Personnel • Incident Command System • IMH – Incident Management Handbook • An organization comprised of diverse E&P companies that bring to bear a collective solution though mutual aid.
Incident Management Handbook The HWCG IMH (Incident Management Handbook) provides an organizational structure that can be incorporated into the Incident Command System so that a response to a blowout or well control event can proceed quickly, orderly, and effectively. To that end, the roles and responsibilities of key response personnel are defined and standardized to facilitate the implementation of an effective well containment plan.
All roles and responsibilities are spelled out with description and checklist for easycomprehension and operations.
Process of how Source Control would interact with IMT/Unified Command in different locations.
Notification System • Notification system in place, has a database of 225+ personnel listed for Mutual Aid for source control. • Notification by company • Notification by group • Notification by vendor • Notification by individual • Website setup for signup of members • New entries, revisions, deletionsor updates • Dedicated Command Center for Source Control • PetroSkills – Katy, TX – 15,000 sq. ft. dedicated area • Call back data to support long-term event – immediate.
Incident Command System • In order to establish a standardized system of incident command, we have adopted the National Incident Management System (NIMS) as the standard operating procedures for all members. • Incident Management Team • Source Control Team

What Is a Mutual Aid Operational Plan? A mutual aid operational plan provides the “game plan” for how a mutual aid agreement will be implemented. An operational plan includes detailed information about: Documentation Training Exercises After-Action Review Plan Maintenance • Activation • Requests for Assistance • Mobilization • Resource Accountability • Demobilization
Mutual Aid Conclusion • Successful response with Mutual Aid • Develop agreement for all to monitor and follow. • Highly motivated members identified. • Notification system calls-out personnel and equipment. • Consistent process and procedures. • Management system that all can implement immediately. • Established roles and responsibilities. • Exercise and train (individually and as a group)
