How we can help

Our credentials

Our solutions span across decades and have been applied globally for onshore, offshore, HPHT, ultra-deep-water, highly regulated and remote locations, and environments. Some of our highlights include:

  • Saved $12M on one well through design optimization enabled by our RWIS hardware
  • Identified the capacity to generate $1.29M per year, per abandoned well through transition to CCS operations
  • Our well kill experts formed the core investigation team for the Deepwater Horizon, Montara and Elgin Franklin disasters

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.

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.
