In this post-Macondo era in the upstream oil and gas industry, well design and Integrity across the full well life-cycle is now of increasing concern to industry management and regulators. Industry research indicates that a large number of wells are affected by integrity problems.

The severity and frequency of well integrity problems strongly depends on the region (geological and regulatory framework), the fluids handled, and the age of the wells. This situation will only get worse as wells age, as more wells are drilled and operated in harsher environments, and as watercut increases.

The ISO (the International Organization for standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies aimed at providing guidance to the well operator on managing well integrity. The forthcoming ISO 16530-1 has been developed by producing operating companies for oil and gas, and is intended for use in the petroleum and natural gas industry worldwide.

ISO 16530-1 is intended to provide guidance to the well operator on managing well integrity throughout the well life cycle. Furthermore, ISO 16530-1 addresses the minimum compliance requirements for the well operator in order to claim conformity with this part of ISO 16530.
