simultaneous operation (SIMOP)

1. n. [Well Completions]
A term used mainly on offshore platforms, or installations with multiple wellheads, where more than one wellbore is being accessed, such as where a drilling rig, slickline unit or coiled tubing unit may be operating at the same time. Simultaneous operations generally have an impact on the installation safety procedures and contingency planning processes.
