Collaboration Partners - Wellsite Permit to Work Association

The Wellsite Permit to Work (WPTW) System is an international leading practice, risk-based, work authorisation process developed for onshore drilling and associated wellsite services.  The system is used throughout the Australian Onshore Oil and Gas Industry to support management control of wellsite activity through a standardised approach to the planning and control of permitted work.

The Wellsite Permit to Work Association Inc. is the owner and administrator of the WPTW System on behalf of the Australian onshore oil and gas industry members.
