"The energy industry has gone through a period of significant change, with redundancies happening across the globe, and as a result, the IP of companies has been reduced or eliminated. Gaining validation from a group of technical experts is therefore extremely valuable right now, to confidently progress with projects and plans in the best way possible. That’s where we can help."

How to manage well integrity across the lifecycle of the well

Well integrity sits at the core of drilling, production, decommissioning and energy transition processes, combining technical, operational and organizational solutions to maximize containment throughout the entire life cycle of a well.
