Management and The Board
Materializing well design, safely and efficiently
Reduce costs associated with drilling and well management
Ensure contracts are set up to optimize expenditure, assure quality and timely delivery of services and equipment
Assure sufficient and safe programs and procedures are implemented
Identify and effectively manage any risks associated with operations
Assure compliance with legislation and standards
Minimize environmental impact and risk
We develop detailed programs and procedures for execution of operations: rig move; drilling; casing running; cementing; logging; well testing; completion; and plug and abandonment.
We facilitate and conduct risk and HAZOP assessment of design and planned operations together with the service providers and client’s representatives, and manage these throughout execution.
We author the applications for approval to conduct drilling and well operations from the authorities, monitor compliance and report when required.
We assist the client in obtaining good contracts and efficient procurement to ensure competitive pricing, timely delivery and quality of services during execution.
We have experience from conducting logistical operations in remote locations. Efficient coordination of logistics saves costs and reduces environmental impact and risks.
We compose the budgets and AFE cost estimates for the specified activity based on our cost database, vendor proposals and client’s contracts. Invoices are controlled and disputed if in error.
We source and train an emergency response team in how to react to a range of incidents and accidents.
We supply our clients with our technical experts to work as integrated members of our client’s team on an ad-hoc basis.
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.
An operational success delivered within budget and with:

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.
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.
