Safe Influx has been shortlisted in the Best Drilling Technology category at the forthcoming World Oil Awards.

The Best Drilling Technology award goes to innovators, who executed an industry-leading effort during the year that had a significant impact on the industry, onshore or offshore, through drilling innovation. Safe Influx is amongst the six companies selected in this category.

Safe Influx provides a game-changing solution to the industry. The Automated Well Control technology is designed to fully automate influx detection and well shut-in sequences to dramatically reduce the influx size and prevent major accident hazards.

Bryan Atchison, Managing Director at Safe Influx, said: “It’s a fantastic honour for Safe Influx to be one of the finalists. Integrity, innovation and passion have been the drivers which have enable us to work on and our nomination is testament to the hard work we have undertaken in the last few years.  I’m delighted to see this global recognition that our technology provides a significant contribution to the industry.”

“The risks of well control have been a challenge to the industry since drilling began. By far, the greatest risk is that managing the human factor elements. Our Automated Well Control technology eliminates that risk by using automation. Being nominated for this award provides us with a boost of motivation to continue our efforts in improving safety and efficiency in wells operations.”

Congratulations to all the finalists. We are looking forward to the awards ceremony in October 2021.
