Top 5 challenges associated with effective well integrity management, and how to overcome them

Top 5 challenges associated with effective well integrity management, and how to overcome them

Well integrity has been recognized as a vital aspect of drilling, production, decommissioning and energy transition processes for many years, with significant developments being made to improve both the construction and operational procedures throughout a well’s life cycle - not only to ensure a longer lifespan of the well, but more importantly for human and environmental safety.

How to manage well integrity across the lifecycle of the well

How to manage well integrity across the lifecycle of the well

Well integrity sits at the core of drilling, production, decommissioning and energy transition processes, combining technical, operational and organizational solutions to maximize containment throughout the entire life cycle of a well. In other words, well integrity is what you do when nobody's looking, and takes place in every phase of the well’s life, from design right through to decommissioning and conversion many years later.

All involved parties have a shared responsibility in maintaining well integrity, from the design engineers and service providers delivering the equipment, to well construction personnel and those operating it on site.

Failing to implement a robust well integrity management system, and employing skilled people who can operate the well safely to prevent accidental releases, can have catastrophic consequences. If the well’s integrity is compromised, this can potentially lead to a blowout which in turn can result in the loss of lives, heavily pollute the environment, and affect a company financially - all three of which were seen in the blowout from the Macondo well in the Gulf of Mexico.

In order to optimize well integrity management, it’s important to fully understand what it is and how it is implemented at every phase of a well’s lifecycle. To help you go about optimizing an existing well, or set up a robust integrity management system for the lifecycle of a new well, Terje Løkke-Sørensen, Add Energy’s Chief Technical Officer and co-author of the world-class NORSOK Well Integrity Standard, has shared insights into how you can effectively manage well integrity throughout its entire lifecycle...
