  • Capstone customers should understand what their worst day in business might look like

    • Planning for that day has the unique effect of focusing personnel on prevention
    • In the unlikely event of an uncontrolled release, having a practical guide to blowout recovery can be a distinct advantage
    • A site-specific Capstone Blowout Contingency Plan can provide this advantage

    Capstone understands that it’s difficult for operators to share problems with others until it is deemed absolutely necessary.

    However, it is our experience that the earlier we are engaged, the greater the opportunity to minimize or prevent losses.

  • Blowout recovery is a risk management process focused on protecting the:

    • personnel on site
    • public
    • environment
    • client’s investment & corporate image


    Managing hazards is an ongoing responsibility for Capstone personnel. An uncontrolled release can be unpredictable due to wellbore dynamics and flow characteristics. Each surface intervention job step can influence flow features which in turn may adversely affect hazards.

    The understanding of hazard potential is realized through extensive experience at managing risk in a dangerous environment.
