"The energy industry has gone through a period of significant change, with redundancies happening across the globe, and as a result, the IP of companies has been reduced or eliminated. Gaining validation from a group of technical experts is therefore extremely valuable right now, to confidently progress with projects and plans in the best way possible. That’s where we can help."

The NORSOK D-010 standard and why it is fundamental to well integrity management

Developed by Norway’s oil industry initiative, NORSOK, the well-respected D-010 standard for well integrity in drilling and well operations defines the minimal functional requirements for well design, planning and execution with the aim of maintaining well integrity throughout the life-cycle of the well. It includes a mixture of functional and prescriptive guidelines which are found very useful to operators, who use the standard as part of their management system and service contracts, and to regulators, who include references to D-010 as part of their guidelines.
