Notice Type Improvement Notice
Description You, as well operator have failed to ensure that wells are operated and maintained so far as is reasonably practicable, that there can be no unplanned escape of fluids from the well. In that your well management processes have failed to raise and execute corrective work orders to restore the integrity of your wells, and risk reduction measures identified in risk assessments have not been implemented in contravention of your own Well Integrity Management processes. On Piper Bravo, water injector wells have been impaired since 2005 but in your Well Impairment Notification WDISP1759 of 2020 you record that no Corrective Work Order has been raised and that “No follow up work has been added to the asset plan”. For those wells additional condition monitoring identified in the risk assessment in 2011, and all subsequent risk assessments have not been implemented. On Tartan you have a subsea well which has been shut in since 2003 and in 2020 you record “this well has no production barriers in the tree cluster” yet your Well Impairment Notification WDISP001678 records that no corrective work order has been created to initiate a repair. Annual wells reviews as detailed in the Well Integrity Management system were not performed. On Arbroath you have a well which has been shut-in since 2009 with sustained annulus pressure but your well Well Impairment Notification WDISP001720 records that no corrective work order was raised for the issue.
