Over Pressure Causes Production Tank Damage
A crew was hydrotesting a newly constructed pipeline when an incident occurred. During pigging operations, hydrotest fluid and the pig became lodged. While the crew dewatered and depressured the equipment, a large volume of air inadvertently escaped into the adjacent 400-barrel production tank. High pressure in the tank blew off the tank lid and vent lines. No one was injured in the incident, but it could have resulted in severe or fatal injuries to workers in the surrounding area.

Energy Safety Canada’s training certificates demonstrate a worker has been properly trained and is ready to work safely. Employers and workers rely on our certificates to prove a worker has been properly trained. Fraudulent ESC training and counterfeit ESC certificates are a safety hazard.

Over Pressurized Piping Causes Line Failure
A coiled tubing crew was conducting pressure tests of the blowout preventer. Following a successful low-pressure test the line was bled down. This pressure was bled off without issue. At this time, a high-pressure test was conducted. When the valve was feathered open to bleed off the pressure, a loud bang was heard, and the piping parted. Several workers were in the vicinity of the flying debris, but nobody was injured.

Dropped Heavyweight Drill Pipe
A heavyweight drill pipe dropped to the floor and fell toward the driller's controls. The top of the pipe struck the doghouse and bounced, throwing the worker into the steam manifold. The pipe slid down the doghouse, through the railing, across the mud tanks and into the track hoe, missing the operator.
