Oil wells are borings into the earth to extract oil resources such as petroleum oil, hydrocarbons, and natural gases. Oil wells require substantial engineering installations, rigs or platforms, and complex equipment to transfer crude material to production and refining facilities. Therefore, oil well inspections are crucial to ensure optimized operations and absolute safety. We’ll talk about key elements in the Oilwell Maintenance Checklist. 

  • What are some of the key items included in Oilwell inspections?
  • Why are these inspections so vital to oil companies?
  • What makes Fielda ideally suited for oil well inspections?

What’s included in Oilwell Maintenance Checklist: Oil well inspections vary in method and purpose depending on the stage of the oil well; pre-construction, construction, drilling, or production stage. Inspectors document basic information like the lease details, well site ingress, and equipment inventory, from tanks to drilling equipment. They inspect and log wellhead details, including readings about the casing string and the conductor, surface pressure readings, etc. Inspectors audit details about the tanks, including evaluation of filters, relief valves, hatch lids, lightning arrestors, etc. Typical oil well inspections also include OSHA audits conducted to ensure that safety and working conditions are up to par.  

Why are Oil well inspections vital: Oil well inspections are critical mainly because of the large-scale investments, time, effort, and infrastructure involved. Gaps in equipment quality or Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) defined by regulatory bodies can cause suspension of work, massive delays, and revenue loss. Safety is another critical factor. It is impossible to spot risks and address them without regular oil well inspections before they turn into accidents. From the operational, compliance, and safety perspective, inspections are the only way to ensure optimum performance of assets and adherence to stated procedures.  

Why is Fielda ideally suited for Oilwell inspections: Inspectors need dynamic forms, checklists, SOP documents, and data capturing formats. This depends on the nature of data being captured, the type of evidence documents required, and the specific fields to be included depending on processes needed for the stage of oil well inspection. Fielda brings into the process absolute customizability, ease, and efficiency. It allows inspectors to get rid of all paper-based and manual processes. It makes SOPs and procedures and data collection completely digital, entirely managed on their mobile device. And with offline data capture, no site is too inaccessible for digital data gathering.  

Pre-empt: Prevent lapses in compliance, loss of productivity, and delays through proactive maintenance

Optimize: Lower costs, improve the speed of inspections, and eliminate error-prone manual data processes 

Consolidate: Take highly informed decisions on inspections, repairs, servicing, and overall project management with real-time data
