CP-HSE-658 Lifting Operation Plans

3. SAFETY INFORMATION & LOLER CONSIDERATIONS

1) Can be considered to be a routine operation, there for the TRIC


card can be utilised for the risk assessment and lifting plan.

2) A competent person should carry out a pre-use inspection of all


lifting equipment, including winches, slings and other accessories,
ensure colour code is current and the SWL is adequate for the
task.

3) If a problem occurs or the plan changes, stop and re-assess the


situation, review the risk assessment and lifting plan.

4) The limits that are applied to pipe strength.

5) Shut in procedure in the event of a kick.

6) Identification of signals between the Derrickman and the Driller.

7) Identification of the key safety points for pre-job toolbox talks.

8) The pipe pulling speeds at which swabbing is likely.

9) The driller's view of the rotary table should not be obscured.

10) The crown-o-matic is set correctly and is fully functional.

11) Minimum manning level for the operation would be two


Floormen, Derrickman and Driller.

12) The Driller is responsible for the overall supervision of the


operation.

CORMORANT ALPHA DRILLING OPERATIONS GUIDE

4.1 PREPARATION

1) Select the correct power assignment.

2) Select the correct gearing (Always pull in the highest gearing


possible).

3) Check the slips and elevators are of the correct type and are in
good condition.

4) Hold a toolbox talk and complete the TRIC card, ensure that all
crewmembers are aware of the risks and the controls put in place
to mitigate them, also that they are familiar with the lifting plan.

5) Place the crew accordingly.

6) Put the mud monitoring equipment into the tripping mode. (Line
up the trip tank.)

7) Unlock the block's swivel mechanism.

4.2 PERFORMING

1) Lower the blocks until the elevators are below the tool
joint in the slips.

2) Stop the blocks.

3) Supervise the elevators latching.

4) Raise the blocks slowly until the 'hook' opens and the elevators
seat.

5) Increase the speed that the blocks are being raises until the
desired rate is reached. (The slips are pulled during the first
stages of acceleration.) The rate is dependent on hole conditions,
power, gearing, string weight.

6) Maintain this speed until enough pipe is left to be pulled during


which controlled deceleration can take place. The length is again
dependent on string weight, power, gearing and hole conditions.

N.B. When the string is in open hole before stopping raising the
blocks ensure that the string has been raised sufficiently that when
the slips are set no additional tensile forces are being applied to
the string. ie. "Come up before you come down."

7) Stop raising the blocks.

8) Supervise setting the slips.

9) Lower the blocks and transfer the string weight to the slips.

10) Stop the blocks when the elevators are just below the tool joint.

11) Supervise the breaking and the backing out of the joint.

12) Raise the blocks until the pin is just above the box.

13) Lower the blocks in conjunction with crew manoeuvring the


pin end to the racking area. (Speed of descent must be
constant and controlled.)

14) Rack the stand and continue lowering the blocks.

15) Observe the Derrickman unlatching the elevators. (If


difficulties are encountered stop the blocks until unlatched.)

16) Continue lowering the blocks in a controlled manner to latch onto


the next stand. (The elmagco is still engaged.)

5. ON COMPLETION

Repeat the process.

9) Hard hat and chin strap to be worn at all times.

10) Visually check the board and fingers.

11) Remove any knots in the rope.

12) The escape line and descending device are in good working order.

13) The Driller is responsible for the overall supervision of the


operation.

4. PROCEDURES

4.1 PREPARATION

1) Hold a toolbox talk and complete the TRIC card, ensure that all
crewmembers are aware of the risks and the controls put in place
to mitigate them, also that they are familiar with the lifting plan.

2) Don the harness and ensure a snug fit prior to accessing the
board.

3) Adjust the belly rope so that when leaning into it you stand
vertical to the end of the board.
This is a variable due to stature.

4) Adjust the pull back rope to give enough rope to go around the
pipe when centred over the table and come 18" past the edge of
the board.

5) Open the fingers in preparation to receive the stand.

6) Position yourself at the "Edge" of the board with the pull back
rope supported in the right hand if racking on the right or the left
if racking on the left.

4.2 PERFORMANCE

1) As the elevators pass head height of the Derrickman, loop the pull
back rope round the pipe by swinging the free end from right to
left and catching it with the left hand.

2) Hold the rope with both hands with the arms extended by
approximately eighteen inches resting the loop against the back of
the pipe approximately six inches below hand level.

3) Maintain this position as the joint is broken, the stand spun out
and raised.

4) As the stand is being lowered flick the loop upwards to


compensate for the downward movement of the pipe

5) Pull on the free end of the rope until the pipe is just touching the
front of the board.

6) Maintain the pipe in this position by pulling on the rope with the
right hand. (Maintain an upright stance if possible.)

7) Reach up with the left hand and as the elevators come free of
the tool joint and unlatch them.

8) Release the handhold on the elevators and permit them to fall free
of the pipe.

9) Transfer the grip of the rope from the right to the left hand still
maintaining the tension.

10) Place the right hand on the rope approximately two feet back
from the pipe.

11) Manoeuvre the pipe to the right until it is in a position to be


pulled back into the alley (the gap between the board and fingers).

12) Pull the stand back with a combination of "jacking" and straight
pull on the rope until level with the receiving finger. "Jacking" is
effected by exerting either a downward or horizontal force on the
section of rope between the pipe and anchor point.

13) Push the stand into the finger and release the rope.

14) Secure the stand.

5. ON COMPLETION

1) Prepare the next finger to receive the stand.

2) Prepare the pull back rope.

4) Stand at the edge of the board.

4. PROCEDURES

4.1 PREPARATION

1) Hold a toolbox talk and complete the TRIC card, ensure that all
crewmembers are aware of the risks and the controls put in place
to mitigate them, also that they are familiar with the lifting plan.

2) Ensure the elevators are of the correct type and rating, correctly
installed in the bailes and are operationally sound.

3) Remove the make up chain, change the snublines as required by


the rig lay out and make secure all shackles.

4) Grease and lubricate the rig tongs inspect the tong dies and
change out any worn or damaged ones.

5) Operate tongs and ensure jaw size is correct.

6) Ensure the slips are of the correct size and type, are operationally
sound and lubricated correctly.

7) Ensure the table inserts are of the correct type.

8) Rig the pipe spinner to spin the pipe out.

9) Have the correct dope and brush is readily available on the floor.

10) Chalk or paint sticks are readily available for pipe marking.

11) Ensure the iron roughneck is ready for use. ( see iron roughneck
use)

4.2 PERFORMANCE

(Pipe set in the slips elevators being lowered by the blocks.)

Recommended manning level is three Floormen or two when Iron


Roughneck is in use.

1) Stand with one man facing the horns or front of the elevators.
The other two then stand facing him or the back of the elevators.

2) As the blocks descend the man at the front reaches up with both
hands open and rests them on the elevator horns. The men facing
him reach up with their left hand right hands respectively and
grasp the bailes above the baile eye.

3) As a team, the men at the back pull in conjunction with the man
at the front pushing to guide the elevators past the tool joint.

Once the elevators are past the tool joint the Driller will stop the
blocks descent.

4) The men at the back now push the bailes towards the man at the
front who latches the elevator by pushing the horns together.

If the latch does not connect correctly inform the Driller before he
can pick up. Usually a push with the heel of the hand on the latch
itself will close it.

5) As the string is raised the three men pull the slips and sit them on
the table. (Ensure that the slips are far enough back from the pipe
not to be struck by any moving tool joints or pipe rubbers also
ensure that the slips are not sitting in or over any of the table
holes.

5) After a stand is pulled the slips are set. Setting procedures can be
divided into two distinct practises. These are dictated by the
string being in open hole or casing.

7) In open hole the Driller will pick up the tool joint above the
rotary before coming down to set the slips. This now requires the
involvement of the three men, who lift the slips into the bowl but
do not set them until the pipe is stopped.

8) Setting is done by lowering the slips into the bowl until no weight
is supported by the men.

9) When pulling in casing there is not the need to raise the string
above the slip setting area therefore the slips can be lowered in
the same manner into the bowl when the tool joint reaches the
breaking pint.

10) The rig tongs are now applied.

11) In open hole the rig tongs are not applied to the pipe until the
slips are set.

12) The joint is broken (see Use of Rig Tongs) and the tongs
removed.

13) The pipe spinner is applied to the pipe approximately eighteen


inches above the tool joints and the stand spun out.

(Always ensure free passage of the spinner when operating.)

14) The stand is picked up by the blocks (If necessary turn the
elevators to face the Derrickman).

15) As the blocks lower the stand pull the stand over to the racking
area and guide its descent into the prescribed racking spot.

5. ON COMPLETION

1) Number the stand.

2) Remove any mud spillages from the floor area.

3) Return to the rotary area for the next stand.

4) Dope the box.
