IADC Developing Well Servicing KSAs

A task group will identify well servicing positions that require Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities and will develop core competencies for each.

The International Association of Drilling Contractors' Well Servicing Committee has begun working on KSAs (Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities) for the well servicing industry.The project launched Sept. 9 with a goal of completing them by mid- to late 2014.

Scott Maddox, director of the Houston-based organization's Drilling and Well Services Division, is leading a task group that will identify well servicing positions that require KSAs and will develop core competencies for each. Others with representatives on the task group, which next meets Sept. 23 in Houston, are APITEQ, Occidental Oil and Gas, Pioneer, and Guice Engineering.

"Ensuring employees are proficient in their job functions is the main goal of the Well Servicing Committee, and the KSA program for well servicing is one way to ensure that this is achievable. KSAs provide a set of minimum core competencies that employees should have before being hired or promoted," said Maddox. "It is with these KSAs that industry will continue to move forward toward safer and more efficient operations."

KSAs also may be created for coiled tubing, wire lines, and trucking, according to IADC.
