Writing Proper Standard Work Procedures

Graham Marshall - Thursday, April 06, 2017

Over the previous eight-years I've  worked on improving Procedures in the United States Oilfield.

In those eight-years I have assisted my US client to use proper Procedures to drive huge Safety, Quality, Delivery and Cost (SQDC) improvements in their business.

For example, we have cut well completions costs from $15 Million in 2008 to under $5 Million in 2017.

We have reduced OSHA recordable incidents from three per month in 2008 to none in 2015 and one in 2016.

We have reduced the spud-to-spud drill rig time from 45-days to 15 days.

Putting together everything I've learned about good Procedures; I have recently delivered two training courses in how to write proper Procedures in Western Australia.

Because of the success of the the first two programs, I have decided to deliver four more programs in July and August 2017.

You can review the coarse objectives below.

The next day-long programs will be delivered on the following dates:

  • Thursday 6th July 2017;
  • Thursday 20th July 2017;
  • Thursday 3rd August 2017;
  • Thursday 17th August 2017; and 
  • Thursday 31st August 2017.
