These operations to maintain the integrity of the well aim to guarantee the safety of workers on the drilling site, to protect the environment and to maximize the production of oil or gas.

Indeed, wells must be designed, constructed, operated and maintained by well operators in such a way as to minimize risks to the health and safety of workers, as well as to prevent the leakage of chemicals and oil or gas into the environment.

To meet environmental requirements and safety standards, operators use a variety of techniques to ensure well integrity, including the installation of well liners, well cements, and safety valves. They also perform regular inspections and pressure tests to make sure the well is in good condition and working properly.

Well Integrity Objectives

The objectives of “well integrity”, or well integrity, are multiple and include:

  • Worker safety: One of the main objectives of well integrity is to ensure the safety of workers on the drilling site. Boreholes can be dangerous and should be designed and maintained to minimize the risk of injury to workers.
  • Environmental protection: Well integrity aims to protect the environment against drilling fluid leaks that could contaminate soil, groundwater and waterways.
  • Maximization of production: When well integrity is maintained, it helps to maximize oil and gas production by ensuring optimal fluid circulation in the well.
  • Durability: Well integrity ensures the long-term durability of the drilling rig by ensuring that the well remains functional and safe for the life of the well.
  • Regulatory compliance: Well integrity enables compliance with health, safety and environmental regulations, which may vary by country and region. Well operators must ensure that their drilling rigs comply with applicable safety standards and environmental regulations.

Well integrity professions

There are different trades and specialties related to well integrity in the oil and gas industry:

  • Well Integrity Engineer
  • Well Completion Engineer
  • Well maintenance technician
  • Well Inspector
