SPE WA Feb ’18 Technical Luncheon – Digital DROPs

February 8, 2018 @ 11:45 am - 1:00 pm

$30.00 – $55.00

SPE WA are opening up 2018 with a safety related presentation by Lloyd’s Register –

Digital (Dropped Object Survey) DROPs and the red/risk zone; the next evolution to enhance rig safety.

Dropped objects have the third highest work related fatality rate in the industry. Lloyd’s Register has a strong history of industry experience and capability in drilling and Dropped Object Survey (DROPs) audits in both onshore and offshore environments and are now evolving DROPS to Industry 4.0 expectations by combining it with Red/Risk zones and adding digital capabilities.

This proposed end-to-end solution will increase safety, awareness and productivity in high risk environments through technologies such as machine learning, haptic feedback and predictive analytics to assist site managers and heavy machinery operators, and to warn users who are entering a risk zone.

Speaker – Thomas Smart
