INDUSTRY RECOMMENDED PRACTICES (IRPs)
The Drilling and Completions Committee (DACC) is responsible for the development of recommended technical operating practices for the upstream oil and gas industry in the areas of drilling, completions and servicing of wells. The primary focus of DACC is to develop technical industry recommended practices (IRPs), where the objectives include cost efficiencies, technical optimization, productivity, safety and environmental performance.
ICoTA is a strong supporter of the IRP process, and ICoTA members help participate in their review and development.
IRPs provide guidance or best practices to conduct operations in a safe and technically acceptable manner. They are developed to meet, or exceed, the minimum intent of the applicable legislation in the on-shore jurisdictions in which the industry operates.
