Overview

Have you ever had a need for expert advice to solve a problem or have a technical solution reviewed? ADDVisor is a Subject Matter Expert that helps young or experienced engineers to avoid making engineering mistakes by giving advice on an immediate problem.

ADDVisor allows you to engage the experts you need in short cost effective engagements from one hour to one week. A typical engagement is just a few hours to days and gets you just the results you need, quick and efficiently.

Our pool of industry experts includes Senior Engineers with a wide range or practical experience and M.Sc. or Ph.D. Engineers with indepth knowledge in a specific subject/topic. Many of our ADDVisors are known authorities within their field of expertise - developed through long service periods with E&P Majors around the globe.

Example: You wonder if formation damage of a reservoir interval will be a significant problem if MEG is used to equalize the SSSV? You have done a quick study yourself and would like to get an expert to endorse the study, conclusions and recommendations.
