Reduce the Risk of Serious Incidents

Wellsite Safety

Despite the greater emphasis placed on safety and mitigation procedures, serious incidents continue to plague the oil and gas industry. While major international players can absorb financial losses resulting from multiple breakdowns, structural and environmental damage, and litigation, just one incident of incorrect operation or equipment failure can put an enterprising small oil or gas company at tremendous risk.

Consider pipeline safety,  for example

Between 2002–2021, there was an average of 34 serious pipeline incidents per year, with an average of 13 fatalities and 56 injuries annually. Through November 2022, there were 17 incidents, 9 fatalities, and 24 injuries.

Although these pipeline statistics are below their 20-year highs, the oil and gas industry experiences adverse incidents across all lines of operation. Three leading causes of incidents pertain to training, turnover, and technology.

  •  Training: According to UL Solutions, many oil and gas producers are facing significant staffing challenges in today’s tight labor market. As such, many companies are hiring more employees with little to no industry experience. While inexperienced staff require more comprehensive safety training measures, that does not mean they will receive it.
  • Turnover: Even in a labor market that favors employers, consulting firm Trenergy asserts the lowest field worker turnover rate oilfield companies can hope to achieve is 25–30% per year. Reducing churn often depends on companies retaining managers with strong leadership and training skills plus a low incident rate.
    It is not unusual to see field workers in this industry follow their managers from company to company.
  • Technology: Safety training processes are always a good thing. But companies also need to provide their field workers with the right technology that gives them a voice, one that enables them to reduce the likelihood of an adverse incident or to mitigate an occurrence.


The Wellsite Report app is nimble and simple to use

Easy to implement and even easier to work with, the versatile Wellsite Report app stands apart from other oil and gas reporting software for incident reporting and data capture. It enables field workers to quickly create detailed reports on safety incidents and service quality failures, alert relevant parties in real time that an incident has happened, and use an incident management workflow to assess incidents and take corrective actions. Plus, you can digitize your company’s existing forms for mobile and desktop use to eliminate paper at the job site.


Improve safety and reduce your risk of incidents the Wellsite Report way.

Mitigate the downsides of higher interest rates

First, the good news. Since the height of the pandemic in 2020, exploration and production companies (E&Ps) have reduced their net debt from a high of $316.74 billion to $178.66 billion at the end of 2022. According to CreditSights senior analyst Charles Johnston, most independent E&Ps refinanced and now pay less than the double-digit interest […]

Gain a competitive advantage over other service companies

Although oil and gas producers are trying to get more out of existing wells than from drilling new ones, 2023 is on pace to be a record year for domestic oil and gas production.
