Course Description


SIPROD (Simultaneous Production and Drilling) is performing simultaneous activities of production and drilling at one phase and one location. When drilling and production activities are combined, the resultant magnitude of risk to personal and property is generally perceived to be high enough to discourage simultaneous drilling and production. In certain circumstances, however, it may be financially attractive to maintain production while drilling, thus avoiding the potential loss or delay of production.

In order to enter in to a SIPROD mode campaign, specific design modifications has to be carried out on the Drilling Platform and the Production Platform or any other adjoining platforms to accommodate the rig and to ensure that production and safety systems are upgraded to cater for the increased risks due to the simultaneous activities.
