Alert 09 – 32 Dropped Slip Dies Results in Broken Hand


While running a dual string of 5” and 2-3/8” tubing using air slips, the slips did not set properly when slacking off of the tubing. This caused two of the setscrews that hold the slip dies in place, to shear off. After the tubing was picked up the slips opened and the die came out of the slips and fell through the rotary into the moon pool, striking an employee on the hand.
