Monday Accident and Lessons Learned: Incorrect Pressure Gauge

Incorrect Pressure Gauge

Correct Pressure Gauge

The IOGP recently released that in September 2015, the incorrect pressure gauge was used on a high pressure supply line causing a high pressure release. When investigating, they found that the two gauges are identical in appearance, were stored in the same place and were stored in the incorrect place for convenience purposes. What are the corrective actions? Better storage of all pressure gauges, check all gauges before installing them, and check all current gauges to ensure they are being used correctly.

What are your thoughts on this incident? The investigation? The corrective actions?
