What is Covered in this Program

  1. This program provides understanding of Oil & Gas Drilling Substantial Commercial, Technical, Safety and Community related Risks and how they are typically assigned between the stakeholders. This program will further show how risks change from Wild Cat Wells to Production Wells and what provisions need to be added to clarify risks and liabilities.
    This program will briefly discuss the process of Contracting Out Drilling Oil & Gas wells to Specialist and well-Resourced Drilling Contractors.
    This program will provide the required multi-discipline multi-stakeholder knowhow to help your organization meet the operational and strategic objectives on drilling contracts.
  2. Drilling Contracts define the rights and responsibilities of the parties. The contracts mention situations, under which the contractor will be entitled to reimbursement of his losses or recoverable costs. These situations need to be administered carefully to prevent unrecoverable costs being charged by the Drilling Contractor. Industry Standard Contracts referenced include IADC, API and others.
    The E&P operator or field owner provides to drilling contractor information and data on the site, permits, access to site, some materials as mentioned in contract, and, expected and maximum depths to be drilled. Drilling Contractors are expected to have the required professional expertise and judgement, perform diligently and to good professional standards.
    Safety and Accident Incidents are recorded and documented. Major Risks are often covered by Insurance. Blowout is usually the responsibility of the Operator. Responsibility for Lost circulation and any redrilling requirements depends on specific circumstances, Supervisory Control and Contract.
    This program will provide the participant a detailed understanding of the Contractual and management aspects of each of the above-mentioned processes and events.

This program provides the participants the necessary understanding and knowhow.
    The program will also discuss the effective Contract Administration, Data and Information sharing and Mitigation Steps required to ensure your organization's liabilities of Oil & Gas Drilling Contracts are not avoidably Increased.
