Model Code of Safe Practice in the Petroleum Industry Part 17, Volume 1: High Pressure & High Temperature Well Planning
New ISBN 9780852935293
Date Published: May 2009

Following publication of the revised Model code of safe practice: Part 17, Volume 2: Well control during the drilling and testing of high pressure high temperature wells last year, the Energy Institute is pleased to announce the publication of two additional volumes to Part 17, covering well planning and well completions and interventions.
These new additions to Part 17 were commissioned in response to the requirements of the UK industry for the Model Code to include two separate publications for well planning and completions and interventions in High Pressure, High Temperature (HPHT) environments.
Volume 1: Well planning includes details on project risk and uncertainty management, roles and responsibilities, project management framework, quality assurance and quality control, well planning good practice, rig selection and planning for safety operations. It should be considered as the starting point for operators and contractors developing work programmes and associated operational plans. Good planning should assist with reducing commercial risk as well as being the first stage of safety assurance during operations.
All three volumes of Model code of safe practice in the petroleum industry: Part 17 aim to assist the process of identification and assessment of risk and risk mitigation for HPHT well operations during the entire well lifecycle. The publications also incorporate information derived from recent operational experience.
