Use this opportunity to get the know the standard better and increase your competence in Well Integrity
The NORSOK D-010 is the only holistic well integrity standard in the world, that addresses well integrity throughout the life cycle of the well, starting with well construction (drilling, underbalanced/managed pressure drilling, completion, testing), through its service life (production, pumping) including remedial intervention activities (wire-line, coiled tubing, snubbing), before terminating the well (abandonment activities).
The standard focuses strongly on the establishment of well barriers and well barrier elements and how these are accepted and monitored to prevent loss of integrity that ultimately could lead to a blowout. The standard is logically divided into thematic sections and contains prescriptive requirements and guidelines. It gives a good basis for assisting you with preventing and solving well integrity issues.
The standard is a result of a continuous cooperation between Norwegian based operators and service companies. The standard is also gaining momentum outside Norway, and is used in Australia, Brazil and Canada.
The general principles of the two-barrier concept, which is not difficult but challenging when you are facing real decisions that cost money. The well construction activities will be addressed with this as a base, starting with drilling of the well, through well testing/completion and ending with abandonment. Well intervention / well servicing will be briefly presented. We will also discuss the importance of blowout control and contingency planning and how this is reflected in the standard. The material is presented by reputable and experienced engineers and will end with a group exam to be solved on the basis of D-010. We have chosen also to discuss real case studies to increase the understanding and relevance of well design, and for the day to day well operations.

Was integral to the last 2 revisions of the D-010 standard. As Chairman of this standard for Rev. 3 (2003) and Rev. 4 (2013) he was tasked with recommending structural and content changes, coordinating input from over 20 industry experts as well as authoring several sections himself. Terje is a graduate M.Sc. Petroleum Engineer from the University of Trondheim (NTH), Norway. He has worked over 30 years for various operators and service companies, both as an employee and consultant. He has authored several well integrity manuals and gives speeches/courses in D-010. Terje works for Add Energy in the role of Chief Technical Officer.
Ole B Rygg
Ole is internationally renowned as an expert within blowout prevention and well killing. He started as a research scientist in multiphase flow at the Institute for Energy Technology in Norway. He co-founded Well Flow Dynamics (now a part of add energy) which specialized in well control and multiphase flow analysis. He has advised operators world-wide on blowouts for more than two decades and was directly involved in solving the well kill operations on Montara (Australia), Macondo (GoM) and Elgin (North Sea).
