HOUSTON – Express Energy Services has created a short film, Left Undone, which aims to educate and inform oilfield workers on the hazards and safety procedures in the event of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) exposure while working on a well site. Hydrogen sulfide is an ever-increasing problem for workers involved in oil and gas exploration and production.
The film, designed to be used in safety training by companies working in the oilfield, is offered to the industry free of charge. It can be viewed by registering at www.eeslp.com/p-video-subscriber. Upon registration, viewers will instantly be sent a password to view all Express films including Left Undone.
“The movie illustrates the importance of following safety procedures and the potential tragedy arising from H2S exposure,” said Frank Perry, chairman, American National Standards Institute (ANSI)/ American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) Z390 Committee for Hydrogen Sulfide Safety. “The movie should be widely used as an invaluable supplemental training tool for people who work in the oilfield.”
In the film, a family man goes to work and dies in a preventable H2S incident only to find himself back in bed the next morning – over and over again – with the chance to do what was “Left Undone.”
“Express created this film because we are committed to protecting the safety and well-being of our employees,” said Darron Anderson, CEO of Express Energy Services. “We are excited to share this great project with the industry in hopes that everyone in the oilfield works safely on the job, so they can return home and take care of their families.”
The film is based on a fictional incident from the point of view of an oilfield services company supervisor working on a rig that has potential for H2S exposure. The project was conceptualized, managed, and produced completely in-house by Express employees.
