Critical Focus Areas

The Critical Focus Areas are those areas that present the biggest risk for the occurrence of HSE, process safety, and service quality incidents. When conducting operations involving any Critical Focus Area, extra attention and absolute adherence to our processes are imperative. The Critical Focus Areas are:

  • Well Barriers – Manage well barriers to prevent uncontained release of formation fluids.
  • Hydrocarbons to the Surface – Control the well to prevent unintended flow to the surface.
  • Pressure Control – Control pressurized systems at all times.
  • Well Proximity – Plan and maintain non-intersecting drilling trajectories.
  • Radiation and Explosives – Adhere to global and local regulatory safety requirements at all times.
