The Role:
On request the Wells Quality RCFA Team conducts investigations into Wells tool and equipment failures (excluding work unit equipment) that occur primarily during Drilling (DRO), Completions (COM) and Workover (WO) operations. These investigations often involve travel to vendor locations to witness the incoming inspection, testing and initial stages of disassembly of the failed tools and equipment. We then work with the vendor to arrive at the root causes of the failure event and in developing appropriate corrective actions to mitigate the risk of repeat failures. Investigation findings, conclusions and recommended corrective actions are documented in a report that is submitted to management for approval. Approved reports are saved in Open Wells and are directly assessable from the RCFA Team website. Lessons learned are shared globally via the quarterly RCFA Awareness Bulletin.
