Emergency Response

We source and train an emergency response team in how to react to a range of incidents and accidents.

Advisors and Consultants

We supply our clients with our technical experts to work as integrated members of our client’s team on an ad-hoc basis.

“We were able to gain full visibility of risks associated with the design phase of our field development by the insights provided by Add Energy. We were then able to put mitigation measures in place to avoid incidents.”

What We Did

Our well engineering team provided technical and procurement support during the initial planning phase of the first operated offshore exploration well in Australia, Sea Lion-1 well in VIC/P57.

Add Energy also mobilized a team to handle responsibilities such as; final preparation of programs and procedures; contracts and logistics management; permitting and interaction with the authorities and regulators; operational management of the drilling operations conducted with Seadrill’s West Telesto- jack-up; and final close-out of the drilling campaign.

The Results

An operational success delivered within budget and with:

  • ZERO lost time incidents
  • ZERO environmental incidents
