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:


Production Optimization Steps

Data Screening

To determine the feasibility to optimize production

Production Optimization Steps2

Initial Investigation

Consultation, data gathering and gap analysis

Production Optimization Steps3

Analysis and Modelling

Modelling and analysis of information and production data

Production Optimization Steps4

Initial Findings

Creation of initial findings report and improvement opportunities available

Production Optimization Steps5

Workshop

Review and discuss key findings and feasibility for implementation

Production Optimization Steps6

Recommendations Report

Delivery of technical report detailing conclusions and recommended improvement plan

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.

"Add Energy helped us both with short term and long-term solutions to our production challenges. The short-term solution included installing velocity strings in our tubulars to increase the production, whilst new wells were completed with gas lift mandrels."

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

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.

New perspectives, the right mindset and a shared vision to succeed

It cannot be denied that 2020 has been a year like no other. Based in the Australian office, Eduardo Robaina, Add Energy’s Executive Vice President of Drilling and Well Engineering, guided his team through a year of highs and lows. From bushfires to Covid-19 and regionalized lockdowns, the challenges have been constant.

With a focus on strengthening relationships, entering new markets, and improving capabilities, Eduardo is eager to explore the opportunities that await Add Energy in 2021.

In this interview, which forms part of our ‘The Big Picture: leading our team into the future’ series, Eduardo takes some time to explore lessons learned during 2020 and how his team grew during a period of economic decline.
