PERFORATING SAFETY

Safety is at the core of IPF’s mission. One of our main goals is to promote new technologies that will offer opportunities for improved safety and increased operational efficiency. This is applicable to explosives used in oil and gas producing operations, and more specifically to the use of explosives inside a wellbore. The IPF Safety Chair’s goal is to collect and review incidents and near miss reports related to explosives and associated surface equipment used in oil and gas producing operations electric and electronic detonators, percussion initiators, igniters, delay devices, ballistic transfers, addressable (digital) firing systems and surface equipment associated with the perforating systems. The purpose is to prevent inadvertent and unintentional detonation of explosives, help minimize risks and reduce explosive accidents to zero.
