With complex operations, well blowouts often involve failure of a process which subsequently leads to failure of a component. Arc has found that the best approach to well blowouts typically combines the expertise of drilling, mechanical, and metallurgical engineers. We have investigated incidents involving the following:
- in-stack and downhole explosions
- motors and tools
- tubing and casing
- drill string and above-ground structures
- hoisting and rigging
- SAGD and ISCG
Arc's experience in these areas has enabled the firm to investigate incidents involving rail/marine transport.
