Unscheduled events are costly. Holding DWOP/ CWOP meetings has saved hundreds of thousands of dollars for many companies around the world. The team, comprised of all  office, field and service company personnel, are assembled to review the well plans. The overall goal is enhanced efficiency and reducing planned target times.

During this meeting, various well control and drilling scenarios are discussed. The team constructs a theoretical well and works through each hole section. They then develops a plan to improve performance based on the lessons learned. This plan addresses the need to control costs, while working safely and efficiently.

As a result of the plan, the drilling team has a road map for performing the job properly and meeting operator expectations.  By assembling the drilling team for a pre-spud presentation of the specific well program, you improve planning for avoiding unscheduled events or incidents by improving the channels of communication.
