Self-verification - there’s an app for that!

A BP-commissioned app loaded onto tablet computers is helping our global wells organization monitor and improve operating discipline, reducing safety incidents related to incorrect following of procedures.

Experience tells us that one of the most effective ways to drive down operational risk is to systematically check that the work being carried out at our sites is in accordance with the relevant management systems - this is self-verification. Getting these checks right on drilling rigs, where teams switch in and out with shift rotations and around 80% of the workforce is made up of contractors, is paramount.

Data can be shared directly with sites around the world

Well site leaders use the app, ‘eWells’, to record and share inspection data. They must log in on a weekly basis to confirm that they have read and understood new safety alerts, and undertaken required follow-up actions. 

The resulting information is uploaded automatically to a central database, meaning safety and operational risk experts can review the information without delay and share any significant findings directly with rigs and well sites around the world.
