This client was drilling wells in the harsh North Atlantic, using a new drillship, the largest of her kind at that time, and experiencing erratic results with significant non-productive time. After assessing the previous results, RLG quickly deployed the TMP™ (Theoretical Maximum Performance) methodology to engage leaders, contractors and front line workers to identify risks and opportunities for performance improvement. Success was realized with an immediately step change in performance.
- Six wells drilled during the RLG TMP™ implementation represent 6 of the 7 fastest wells (including the fastest ever) drilled by this client in the past 2 years (days per 10,000 feet)
- On the first well (H) over 140 lessons learned were captured (versus an average of 20 per well previously)
- Over the course of the six wells, over 750 lessons learned were captured and actioned for future programs
- During this period there was only one LTA – a pinched finger injury by a service company supervisor – a remarkable improvement versus the prior wells when injuries occurred with regularity
