MMS begins well control testing
An incident of non-compliance (INC) may be issued to a lessee if a rig employee fails a test. The INC would require notifying MMS of corrective action taken to remedy the situation. Options for corrective action include retraining, retesting, putting an employee under the direct supervision of another employee, or transferring the employee to another job.
MMS conducted a workshop on the Subpart O testing program in New Orleans in March. A copy of the presentation given there has been posted at IADC’s website.
