Well Integrity Management
Eliminate well integrity risks to protect your people, the environment, and your business
Preventing uncontrolled fluid or gas releases from offshore and onshore oil and gas, geothermal and Co2 wells
As a combined entity with AGR, we enable well operators to safeguard integrity across the entire lifecycle of a well, from design and construction to decommissioning and abandonment.
Our seasoned well integrity experts can be deployed to deliver technical, organizational, and operational well integrity management solutions, ranging from independent assessments, examinations, and investigations to procedure authoring and upskilling of your people.
Well integrity management explained
Effective well integrity management
A subsurface well is a pressure container that must be strong enough and well managed to effectively contain the fluids and gases that are stored in it or passed through it, throughout its operating life
Implementing appropriate well barriers and understanding all possible risks that could result in loss of containment will protect life, the environment, and your business.
It is critical to utilize technical, organizational, and operational well integrity management tactics in combination to successfully safeguard the integrity of your well – installing the best well integrity hardware in the world as a prevention tactic alone will not suffice.
Well integrity management tactics
The deployment of physical objects that make up a well, for example, blowout preventer, wellhead, tubulars, cement, packers, with related minimum performance requirements.
How we qualify, utilize, and monitor these physical objects during operations. For example, regular testing of blowout preventers and safety valves to assure they function as per their design and performance standard criteria. It also covers how to conduct an operation – for instance an inflow test of a liner lap or contingency procedures relating to degradation or in event of loss of well integrity.
To ensure the technical and operational prevention tactics work together, we need competent people and organizational structures backed up with supportive management, systems, and tools.
How we can help
Identify and eliminate risk
Identify where well integrity is at risk of being compromised and put mitigation measures in place to mitigate an uncontrolled release through access to independent assessment and advice
