Ensuring safe operations during start-up

add energy provides production readiness support for start-up of two subsea wells

add energy monitored well performance during unloading and clean-up of two recent subsea wells. The wells were equipped with smart completions and required careful manipulation when first produced to the rig. A methodology that determines safe operating limits for a range of formation heterogeneities was developed by the add energy team to assist Woodside towards their 2016 production target. Well operating envelopes, operating guidelines and bean-up procedures were handed over to Woodside to assure safe operating conditions can be maintained throughout the well lifecycle for the complex well completion. Following successful production start-up, add energy was tasked with developing a similar methodology for additional wells targeted for late 2016.
