Over the past years, I have written several columns and articles that, hopefully, you found to be humorous, enlightening, entertaining and often just plain goofy. However, there is one subject about which I remain completely serious-safety on the rig. Everyone deserves to have a safe workplace and to go home each day with the same things he/she came to work with that day-all the fingers, toes, eyes, ears and everything else. I tell the young drillers that we don’t want any blood or oil in the water, and I’m serious about that.
Our friends in the downstream sector are under pressure everywhere to improve safety. Recently, we have heard about explosions and fires in large refineries and chemical process plants with devastating results. Their process safety programs are continually reviewed and revised.
Something the downstream guys are using now involves the concept of inherently safe equipment, procedures and processes.
