Safe Handling-Treatment-Disposal

Bandung | May 4-7, 2010 | USD 917,-/ Person


With today’s growing awareness of social responsibility and public interest, environmental concerns are receiving the highest priority in government regulations. The future of our environment – and the industry – depends on meeting the challenge of maintaining a balance between acceptable environmental practices and economically efficient operating procedures.

These growing concerns have imposed a burden on the oil and gas drilling industry to implement program and technique to not only minimize the potential impact that oil and gas operations can have on the environment but also remediate those impacts, whether they occurred through accident or negligence.

The mandate to the oil and gas industry of implementing environmentally safe drilling technique has proven to be not only a financial challenge but also an administrative challenge.

Regulations governing the oil industry with regard to the environment continue to change, yet many firm that recognize they no longer can conduct their operations as they did in “the good old days” have had to employ full-time environmental professional to ensure that all operations conducted in the field are in compliance with the changing local and state regulations. This increase scrutiny also has prompted drilling contractor to think of ways to minimize the impact their operations have on the environment rather than just ways of how to remediate the impact ones it occurs.

This training is intended to introduce technique that will assist oil and gas professional in minimizing the impact that drilling operations have on the environment.

Much of what is contained herein reflects the trainer’s industry experience, with an emphasis on-shore and wetlands drilling operations. At the same time, it must be said that the preferred practices and recommendation outline in this program can serve as useful guidelines for operator and drilling contractor elsewhere in the world, notably in environmentally sensitive areas of developing countries that have little historical regulatory precedents.

This 4 day course covers all aspects of drilling and deals with both theory and application. It is particularly valuable for their career in drilling operation.

Emphasis is on the system and technique that are commonly used in the drilling industry, regulations and environment protection basics, from site assessment to reclamation. The curriculum is designed to provide the information needed as a drilling waste professional, regardless of skill level.

This course is a must attend for all individuals with overall environmental compliance responsibilities. This course provides the tools needed for the job.

Course Objective

Upon completion of the training, the participants will have improvement in:

  • Knowledge on hazardous and non-hazardous drilling wastes: generation, characteristics and impacts on occupational safety, health and environment.
  • Understanding environmental management principles including waste minimization or cleaner production
  • Practical knowledge on the proper identification, segregation, containerization, temporary storage
  • Transportation, treatment and safe disposal of hazardous and non-hazardous wastes of drilling activities
