International Deepwater Drilling & Human Performance Conference Panel to Focus on Achieving the ESG goals

Pandemic related challenges and current market conditions continue to test industry. Working collaboratively with all stakeholders to increase our productivity, while addressing reliability, safety, operational performance, and ESG requirements is key. New ways of working, along with new technologies based on the understanding of human nature will assist the industry’s efforts to meet these challenges.

IADC will convene its International Deepwater Drilling and Human Performance Conference in Brazil, one of the preeminent deepwater venues in the world. The conference will examine global challenges for deepwater drilling and completions, along with human performance aspects for safe and efficient drilling operations.

The panel will discuss what’s ahead, drilling market outlook, demand for rigs, and what Operators expect from Drilling Contracts to achieve the ESG goals.

Panelists:

  • Decio Oddone, Director President, Enauta
  • Ian Hammill, GM Wells Deepwater & Frontier Drilling, Shell
  • Kjell Bersås, VP D&W Operations Brazil, Equinor
  • Samuel Bastos Miranda, E&P Executive Superintendent, Petrobras

09:15 Creating a Culture By Design Delivers World Class Performance with Safe, Efficient Operations: David Massey, Chief Executive Officer, The REACH Group, Jon Richards, Diamond Offshore / Brasdril
Comparing the performance of two identical rigs where one had a culture by design, the other by default.  Then exploring how those lessons were applied to the reactivation of three more stacked rigs and how they delivered top quartile performance each time.  Today several operators are using Culture By Design to ensure a safe, efficient operation from Day One.

10:00 Coffee Service & Exhibit Viewing

10:30 IADC/IRF/IOGP panel
This panel discussion will include communication, safety, leadership, and competence as we learn from incidents.

11:30 The Safety Dozen – What Lies Behind Having a Safe Work Environment: Fabio Melo, Operations Manager, Paulo Moritz, Global Training & Competence Manager, ICM Group
The development of a safety culture among an offshore crew is a challenging mission for O&G Operators as well as Drilling Contractors. A mixture of different backgrounds, nationalities and safety performance systems make it complex to increase safety awareness levels and promote an Interdependent Safety Culture. We will investigate what lies behind having a safer environment to reduce operational risks and analyze the main elements that should be addressed to assure every O&G company can promote the highest standards in terms of operational safety.

Human Factors Session

13:45 Human Factors Perspective Panel
Human factors refer to environmental, organizational and job factors, and human and individual characteristics, which influence behavior at work in a way which can affect health and safety.

  • Caroline Morais, Regulatory Specialist, ANP
  • Petrobras representative to be named

14:45 Unlocking Value of Digitalization and Automation Technologies Through Collaboration: Wagner Sardenberg, Key Account Manager, Trond Fiskum, Bjarne Sandrib, HMH
Digitalization and automation technologies has the potential to significantly improve drilling operations, in terms of safety, drilling performance, emissions, and costs. To unlock this value, collaboration, aligned incentives and shared visions between equipment OEMs, drilling contractors and operators are key factors. The presentation will describe a case study of how the drilling equipment OEM, drilling contractor and operator have worked together to develop and deploy new digitalization and automation technologies to create value for all involved parties. The presentation will also share results achieved so far, the key success factors to it and it will discuss the potential and the future frontiers to be explored. 

15:30 Coffee Service & Exhibit Viewing

16:00 New Technology Panel
Discussion by panelists will include what’s ahead and what these companies are doing to help Drilling Contractors achieve their ESG goals.

Deepwater Drilling Session

10:30 New Multiphase Workflow Leads to Better, More Efficient Well Control Planning for Deep Water Conditions: Bjoern-Tore Anfinsen, Well Control Portfolio Manager, Inge Mosti, Waldemar Szemat-Vielma, Schlumberger
The well control planning efficiency can be significantly improved by using a new, automated workflow based on transient multiphase technology integrated in a collaborative well planning system. A dynamic kick tolerance evaluation for all sections can be performed in less than 15 minutes. The model is as easy to use as single bubble kick tolerance calculations. Significant model features like transient temperature and full compositional tracking result in modeling results of particular importance for deep water drilling as it gives high resolution in the transition from dissolved to free gas. The model will also enable evaluations of hydrate formation risk. The results from the workflow will be compared to an existing well control expert software and differences discussed and documented.

11:15 Methodology to Evaluate Safety Critical Events on Well Construction: Saulo Andre Osmari, Production Engineer, Agnaldo M. de S. Silva, Carolina M. Bussola, Gabriel S. Felipe, Igor S. Carmo, Leonardo F. Almeida, Lucas S. Rocha, Mauro C. Lins, Pedro R. Viveiros Costa, Tiago F. Pelissari, Petrobras
In 2020, the implementation of the EVA (Economic Value Added) management system in Petrobras raised several questions about how to quantify the creation of value in intangible issues, such as safety prevention and asset integrity. This case study presents a methodology to assess safety critical events in offshore drilling rigs. The presentation will share how to interpret intangible issues and quantify your value in an organization.

Training & Maintenance Session

13:30 How Augmented Reality Solutions can enhance Training and Competency in the Offshore industry: Sofiane Bennaceur, Operational Excellence Advisor, ICM Group
The purpose of this presentation is to look at the possibilities that the Augmented Reality technologies allow in terms of training strategy in our Offshore industry. It covers three main themes: The present state of the art of AR technologies and a benchmark of the available devices. Their advantages and the obstacles to overcome for their usage acceptance offshore. The enhanced training activities that can be performed and their added value for drilling projects.

14:15 A Condition-Based Riser Maintenance Approach to Reliable, Cost-Effective Asset Management: Paulo Henrique Lopes, Program Manager, Gary White, NOV
The Condition based approach offers an alternative to a traditional time-based preventative maintenance (PM) frequency. Monitoring the actual load history of the equipment, along with a customized inspection schedule, an overall condition assessment of the riser system can be completed. Recommended maintenance, additional detailed inspections, and replacement parts are all determined based on the condition assessments performed continuously throughout the life of the riser system.
