REACTIVATING THE DRILL CREW

When the decision is made to stack a rig, there is often the difficult decision of what to do with the drill crew who have been operating the equipment and managing the daily activities whilst the rig was in service. Many drilling contractors have been forced to send the crew home, often with the intention of re-hiring them if/when the rig wins a new contract. There is now the realisation that the pool of people the industry had planned to rehire could start running dry as the personal needs of the individual have resulted in many finding employment in other, more stable sectors. This has further implications to Drilling Contractors who may now have to consider a less experienced crew consisting of newly hired green hands.

“Skill Fade” is a real threat and reactivating the drill crew should be a process that commences prior to the crew setting foot on the rig. Assigning a structured suite of online training courses can be an efficient way to ensure they are ready to return to a rig environment that was once very familiar to them. This then allows the Drilling Contractor to focus on the Crew Resource Management aspect of training and teambuilding whilst being assured that the level of competency is managed effectively.

As drilling contractors focus on reactivating the rig to class requirements and operational capability, refreshing the knowledge of the drill crew is more important now than it has ever been. Rig crew members are being hired for short, single-well projects and are expected to hit the ground running, but many haven’t been on a rig in some time or are completely new to a rig and due to time and funding constraints, on-site training may not be available.

The casualisation of the workforce has resulted in crews being comprised of temporary teams, many of which have never worked together and therefore lack the team dynamic. This also presents risks related to HSE as labour shortages have led to an increase in an inexperienced workforce who are less safety conscious and less likely to challenge authority on safety issues in fear of not being asked to return.

BESPOKE TRAINING COURSE DESIGN

ADC has the ability to adapt existing ADC online training courses and develop bespoke content to help ensure individual client needs are met. Whether it is rebranding an existing course to be aligned with other online training courses within the existing Learning Management System (LMS); or developing a course that integrates company-specific processes and procedures whilst explaining the underlying fundamentals of the subject at hand; ADC can tailor the solution utilising our dedicated graphic design team through collaboration with our technical authors.

Support for people in Scotland’s oil and gas sector to use their skills in new jobs can now be accessed online thanks to the launch of a dedicated website. The £12million Oil & Gas Transition Training Fund is aimed at people who have been made redundant from the oil & gas sector or are at risk of redundancy.

The fund offers support with training grants to help people retrain, improve their skills or get accreditation that would help them move into a new job either in oil and gas, the wider energy sector, or engineering and manufacturing. The fund is being administered by Skills Development Scotland (SDS), on behalf of the Scottish Government.

The website – www.transitiontrainingfund.co.uk – features a simple application process and provides further information.

The Fund is open to anyone who has worked in the oil & gas sector or in the oil & gas supply chain as an employee or contractor and has either been made redundant or is at risk of redundancy.

Applicants must be actively looking for work and be able to show that the training they wish to undertake will help them find a new job.

Applicants must also live in Scotland, and have either worked in Scotland in their current or previous job or be returning to Scotland to look for work from an overseas post.
