Our platform drilling team were assigned to provide quality assured and safe drilling and completions services for 49 wells.

The client lacked the internal capabilities to conduct this type of work internally and required this support to be outsourced to optimize expenditure and reduce risk.

By contracting in external experienced drilling and well engineering specialists, the client benefited from:

  • Established processes and procedures created by subject matter experts
  • Guaranteed quality of delivery facilitated by the contractual requirements outlined in the scope of services
  • Compliance with legislation and regulations, assured by industry experts

What we did

  • Management of the intervention preparation in accordance with assurance plan processes

What we delivered

Assured well intervention readiness

Completed a 30-day readiness window before each well intervention activity to allow for a proactive review of the activity and subsequent adjustments to be made ahead of time.

Optimised well intervention planning and execution

Through the application of best-practice procedures gained through decades of experience and expertise, our engineers identified and implemented improvements opportunities into future intervention plans.

Optimised well flow and production

Through the completion of back-to-back multi-intervention campaigns, we were instrumental in assuring the well remained productive and fully optimized.

Bolstered platform expertise

Assist in supplying cross trained resources outside of the scope of contract, including “light weight Intervention vessel” well services support, drilling units work and well kill package logistics and QA.

Reduced mean time between failure

Reduced MTBF for insert safety valves following the introduction of new technology and equipment management strategies.

Steered a well life extension project

Reviewed all relevant well data from 49 wells to determine trends in failure modes and provided recommendations for additional well data gathering during intervention campaigns.

On Time, On Budget – Corroborated by the Client

Our engineers delivered the scopes of work on schedule and stayed within budget, which resulted in a recognition award from the client: “D&C Team of the Quarter for Q1 2019”.
