We specialize in managing well construction operations: onshore and offshore; in shallow and deep water; and in remote locations. Our personnel are highly experienced in working in unfamiliar environments, and in dealing with the logistical issues that can arise.


Programs and procedures

We develop detailed programs and procedures for execution of operations: rig move; drilling; casing running; cementing; logging; well testing; completion; and plug and abandonment. Read more

Risk and HAZOP assessment

We facilitate and conduct risk and HAZOP assessment of design and planned operations together with the service providers and client’s representatives, and manage these throughout execution.

Applications and reporting

We author the applications for approval to conduct drilling and well operations from the authorities, monitor compliance and report when required.

Contracting and procurement

We assist the client in obtaining good contracts and efficient procurement to ensure competitive pricing, timely delivery and quality of services during execution.
