How we can help
Concept, Screening, Feasibility and Field Development Studies
We create a range of development scenarios covering different well designs, rig strategies and execution options, and link each case to accurate life of field cost estimates in order to identify optimal development options.
We establish a design basis and utilize experience from offset wells to optimize hole sizes, well profile, sections lengths, casing/liner sizes, mud and cement to achieve the objectives of the well (explore, produce, inject) in a safe and cost efficient way. Stresscheck™ as well as production load assessments (WellCat™) are used to calculate casing loads.
We provide a fit for purpose engineering solution to meet field development plans, lifecycle well integrity and production requirements. We select the best technology for the job, supported by tubing stress analysis, upper and lower completion design, metallurgy assessment and sand control and fluids design. WellCat™ is used to calculate temperature profiles and production tubing stresses.
Well Test Design
We specify the well test string and components and surface processing equipment to achieve the objectives of the flow test. WellCat™ is used to calculate test string loads.
We assess various abandonment solutions for single or multiple wells to ensure that we achieve a leak tight, regulatory compliant and cost efficient design. Together with our well integrity and intervention experts we can assess and rank entire well portfolios to optimize P&A strategies.
Technical Incident Investigations
We assist clients with technical investigation of unplanned events (i.e. packer or cementing failures, stuck pipe, etc.) or significant cost overruns. This may include assessments of the organization’s capacities, competencies and structure.
Feasibility and Cost Estimates - Renewables
Add Energy conduct concept feasibility and cost estimates for deep thermal wells - applying our experience from the O&G sector - adjusted to a lower cost environment.
Field Conversion to Carbon Capture Sequestration (CO2)
Providing assessment of converting an existing field / reservoir into a CO2 storage vessel, including well integrity and risk review for out of zone injection.
