Gas Detection Inspection


By: Matt Kelso

Mechanic Technician Jacob Welborn aboard FPSO Turritella was tasked to drill a hole on the crank shaft on the main gas compressor. Prior to drilling, Jacob performed a gas test and found that gas was present. He immediately utilized SWA and informed leadership. The necessary steps were put in place, so the job could be performed safely. Jacob's bias to action by doing a pre-job inspection may have prevented a major incident from occurring. Great job Jacob!
