Following the course the participant shall be able to readily use the standard to find answers to fundamental requirements and best practises through the lifecycle of the well.

Brief description of the course

The course gives a detailed introduction to the philosophy and structure of the “Norsok D-010 Well integrity in drilling and well operations” standard. A part of the day is spent on group exercises addressing common issues and using the standard to solve the tasks. The course is compliant with the same named module as described in section 4 in the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association Recommended Guideline for well integrity (recommendation 117),  rev. 4.


Personnel directly responsible and or involved in well integrity should have the recommended training. Examples of who may be required to have this training are as follows:

  1. Production operation personnel offshore (including OIM, production supervisors, control room operators, technicians and senior technicians)
  2. Production operation personnel onshore (incl. Ops sup, production engineers, production technologies, HSE personnel)
  3. Drilling/completion/intervention engineers (including drilling supervisor and drilling superintendent);
  4. Rig contractors like drillers and tool pushers
  5. Service-company engineers and operators with delegated responsibilities in well integrity

It is recommended that management and engineers responsible for Well Integrity should be trained.
