The IADC HSE Environmental Subcommittee is developing key performance indicators (KPIs) to help the industry improve its environmental performance. The KPIs will classify specific aspects of drilling operations that have the most environmental impact. As a result, the committee will create baseline measurements for various things such as unit consumption and discharge rates to promote environmental best practices and continued improvement. Travis Warden, 2014 Chairman of the subcommittee and Drilling Manager of Environmental Affairs for Diamond Offshore, said the project aims to foster process safety integrated with environmental performance. In this exclusive interview, Mr Warden provides an update of the committee’s activities and outlook.
