Oil and Gas Well Drilling Wireline Operation Pre-Service Safety Check: Perforating Mobile App
A specialized crew transports and operates the perforating equipment.
How does it work?
Upon arrival to the site, the tools are assembled, then lowered into the well by a wireline unit or conveyed by tubing. Then, a specialized gun shoots small holes into the casing of the producing zone. The perforations allow the oil or gas to flow into the casing or liner. If pressure is sufficient, the oil or gas will rise to the surface. Detailed operational procedures and trained personnel are necessary for the safe handling of explosives. The solutions below illustrate possible solutions; for more detailed information see Additional Information below. Note: The special service supervisor should hold a pre-job meeting with the special service crew and other involved personnel to review responsibilities and coordinate the operations to be performed. The Oil and Gas Well Drilling Wireline Operation Pre-Service Safety Check: Perforating mobile app includes both potential hazards and possible solutions.
