Production Optimization

Get started

Maximize your economic return

Identify and implement designs and techniques to enhance production through expert assessment and recommendations

The value we can offer:

  • Production diagnosis and identification of factors that are impacting and restricting the production capacity
  • A clear understanding of the options available to enhance production and recovery
  • Advice and recommendations on which options will unlock the most ROI, prioritized based on risk, effort, and projected results
  • Justification for change based on data, expert analysis, and experience
  • Removal of bottlenecks associated with the well design
  • Design of artificial lifting systems to enhance production

How We Can Help

To identify the improvement recommendations designed to enhance the production capability, our experts will follow these key steps:

Meet the Production Optimization Team

At Add Energy we have a pool of seasoned well engineering experts who we can call upon to deliver production optimization projects. On a typical project, we will assign a:

  • Principal Well Engineer
  • Senior Well Engineer
  • Senior Production Engineer
  • Senior Reservoir Engineer

The Result

Our team of production, well, reservoir and flow experts will utilize transient multiphase software to model and analyze the well data, and deliver a technical report and presentation detailing the recommended improvement techniques designed to maximize production.

Our proven results:

Stabilized and increased the total oil production from one field by 50% by installing gas lift on their oil producers as well as other modifications to the production environment.

Solving the diagnostic puzzle of blowouts

The importance of effectively and safely managing subsea operations is central to the foundations of Add Energy.

Formed in the wake of a blowout on the Norwegian continental shelf more than 30 years ago, Add Energy’s well control company was set up, originally as Well Flow Dynamics, by three of the key players involved in the incident, to design and develop unique solutions to mitigate the impact of future oil spills.

Add Energy to moderate “Integrity Excellence” workshop at Australian Offshore Well Intervention event

Australia’s leading Well Intervention workshop OWI AUS is going virtual this year to ensure the well intervention community remains up to date, engaged and connected, and will be hosted by the Offshore Network.

This year, Add Energy’s EVP of Drilling and Well Engineering, Eduardo Robaina has been selected to moderate a virtual workshop and webinar at the event on “Integrity Excellence”, with NOPSEMA’s Well Integrity Manager, Mark Bourne and Sarah Robertson, a Well Engineering Supervisor form ExxonMobil.

Behind the scenes with the Deepwater Horizon Investigation team

Behind the scenes with the Deepwater Horizon Investigation team

On the evening of April 20th, 2010, a well integrity failure allowed hydrocarbons to escape from the Macondo well into Transocean’s Deepwater Horizon rig, resulting in explosions and fire in which 11 people lost their lives and 17 were injured. This incident caused a spill of national significance as hydrocarbons continued to flow from the reservoir for 87 days, resulting in the most expensive oil spill in history.

Add Energy were called in to be part of the core investigation team, to independently investigate the events that led up to the incident. Our Head of Well Control, Morten H. Emilsen was brought into this tightknit team of experts to analyse and examine all possible causes and to provide expert recommendations to enable prevention of similar events in the future.


We interviewed Morten to understand the part that Add Energy played in this crucial investigation and what he learned from working on one of the biggest hydrocarbon disasters to date.

 

How did Add Energy come to be involved in the investigation?

Boosting production amid a cost-conscious environment

The impact of COVID-19 has resulted in many operators delaying investment into new projects and looking for opportunities to improve operating efficiencies and lowering costs for projects that are already in play.  

Production optimization is a key component to survival and assuring production remains economically viable and safe.
