Quality Management in The Oil & Gas Industry w/ Dave Mulvilhill (Deep Well Services)
Quality Management in The Oil & Gas Industry w/ Dave Mulvilhill (Deep Well Services)
Our topic of conversation today is Quality Management Systems in the Oil and Gas Horizontal Drilling industry. A Quality Management System is a framework that optimizes internal processes and policies for the continuous improvement of quality.  The approach builds on clear documentation of roles and responsibilities, procedures for each function, then continuously evaluates those processes for quality. Quality management is not just about eliminating errors or prevent them from recurring. It’s also about corporate culture. Ignoring small issues increases risk. And accepting failures inhibits an organization from pushing quality requirements out to vendors and other suppliers.   Deep Well Services is one of the few companies in this industry that has earned the American Petroleum Institute (API) Q2 and the International Standards Organization (ISO) quality management system accreditation.   For more information go to EngageEIC.com
