Wells Forum

The objective of the forum is to provide a formal body through which members’ representatives can share best practices, review well life cycle cross-industry issues, create and resource task finish groups (“TFGs”) for any specific tasks, interact with other industry stakeholders, OEUK Forums and regulators, and to prepare recommendations/guidelines for consideration of the OEUK Board and members.

Available to: All OEUK Operator and Contractor member companies including wells managers and wells services contractors.

Activities include, but are not limited to:
– Identifying industry best practices, guidelines and standards applicable to UKCS well design, construction and management and intervention operations which can be implemented and maintained throughout the industry.
– Advancing the competitive well delivery initiative
– Identifying opportunities to unlock potential production improvement (and ultimate recovery) through increased well interventions
– Providing regulators and stakeholders with a way to discuss cross-industry issues relevant to improving health, safety and environmental excellence.
