Project Showcase: Well Integrity Investigation

Following a significant loss of 28 rig days due to a gas leak from the well, Add Energy was contracted to conduct a technical investigation of the planning and execution performance of a plug and abandonment exercise of the subsea exploration well.

What We Did

We collected and analyzed data and conducted interviews to compare plans and execution performance versus requirements in the local regulations, the client’s Management system and the NORSOK D-010 Well Integrity standard.

The Result

The planned plug and abandonment design solution was found to be non-compliant with NORSOK D-010 and improvements to the client’s Well Barrier Philosophy were recommended by Add Energy.
