Rig Tech subcommittees developing decision matrix, survey on equipment interfaces

Posted on 20 August 2008

The Guidelines Subcommittee is also looking at HSE/training guidelines, focusing on collision avoidance.

Also in August, the ART Software Interface Subcommittee met to develop a questionnaire to better understand how, when and to what degree of severity the inability of equipment to communication is impacting drilling operations.

Under the leadership of Vice Chairman Zain Master, Caterpillar, the subcommittee identified several significant questions helpful in collecting information on integration of the drilling control system, vessel management system, power management system, and accommodation power systems.

Proper integration of drilling equipment is not only critical to reducing downtime, but also plays into rig safety.

The full ART Committee will meet at 2 pm Tuesday, 30 September in the 8th Floor conference room in IADC’s building. Click here to register. If you cannot attend in person, we will have Internet capability available for you to participate remotely. (You will need a microphone to speak.)

More information on the ART Committee is available on its website, www.iadc.org/committees/advanced_rig_technology/index.html.
