Discussing Best Practices for Real Time Monitoring (RTM)
Forum Date: Monday, April 17, 2017
Time:1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Location: Doubletree at IAH
15747 John F Kennedy Blvd
Houston, TX 77032
About the forum: OESI will host a discussion on an OESI/BSEE Best Practice Document for Real Time Monitoring (RTM) of Offshore Well Construction. In 2016, new well-control rules were established (CFR § 250.724) whereby operators are required to provide RTM plans and capabilities for operations in the OCS. As written the rule is open to interpretation and could be viewed as a way for regulators to use technicalities or loopholes to obstruct operations. Therefore, to provide additional clarity regarding § 250.724 and to demonstrate the agency’s intent to cooperate and collaborate with industry, BSEE has requested that OESI provide a collection of recommendations that are likely to satisfy the spirit of the rule without imposing undue burdens on operators or prescribing specific technologies or practices.
