Safety Rules of Snubbing Operation on Oil and Gas Well

Safety rules of snubbing operation are :

  • Personal climbing to or working at a height from which a fall could be dangerous, should wear safety hardness or other equivalent equipment.
  • The work basket should be equipped with an emergency escape system which will enable personal to reach the ground at some distance from the well but not at a dangerous speed.
  • Periodic escape routes should be simple.
  • If snubbing unit is rigged up on a well, where stripper only is being used, each BOP should be opened / closed at least once every three days to prevent corrosion or formation of deposits around the rams.

  3. There must be a hole open between lower stripper and BOP to prevent pressure build up at stripper.
  4. A choke (usually 1/4") is to be fitted in equalizing loop to reduce the stress encountered during the operation.
  5. All BOP wing valves should be doubled, the second ones is for back up.
  6. BOP stack must include shear and blind rams.
