An Example Real-Time Results Summary:



A series of north sea platform wellhead actuator spring change-outs needed to be conducted right-first-time, and safely. This was achieved through applying a trained and coached technical limit and learning before, during and after (LBDA) approach, in order to fully optimise the exectuion.

With full involvement of cross-functional expertise, onshore and offshore, this series of change-outs was simulated, planned for on paper, and then executed in a sequence, one after another, each time implementing the lessons learned from the previous.

Some Background History:

Platform operations identified that springs in various UMGV and FWV actuators in some of the water injection wells were not fully expanding with the valve in the closed position. A repair campaign began in July 2002. After 2 unsuccessful visits, a rigorous planning and learning exercise was undertaken with full contingency planning. There followed a 3rd visit that, with our coaching and the the team collectively applying Technical Limit planning and LBDA, proved to be 100% successful, with significant cost and time savings.

The climate for success, including active leadership in detailed, cross-functional planning and learning, was essential to the success. The key message was one of continually improving, and working smarter rather than faster. Safety was priority number one!
