Updates to IRP 2: Completing and Servicing Sour Wells

IRP 2 committee co-chair Stephen Pun of Cenovus joined Randal McNeill of TARA Energy Services to provide an explanation of this change and other updates to IRP 2.
The third edition of Industry Recommended Practice (IRP) 2: The Completing and Servicing Sour Wells, was sanctioned by the Drilling and Completions Committee (DACC) this January.
One of the significant changes was a move away from jurisdiction-specific terminology to more generic language. This version of the IRP defines the requirements for all sour wells and operations. It then specifically identifies the additional requirements for elevated sour situations to identify wells that meet the elevation triggers.
