Dropped Pipe from Side Door Elevator


While pulling and laying down tubulars, a worker closed and secured the elevators with the verification pin and the Operator hoisted the tubing up. Once the connection was landed in the slips, the tongs were engaged and the connection broke. A crew member was in the process of asking the Operator to hoist the tubing back up when it fell down to the stabbing mat and came to rest against the rig floor.
