Engineering, Planning and AFE Cost Modelling

Oil Consultants are able to provide engineering and planning services to meet the industry needs. Oil consultants have engineers with core skills and utilize industry software to be able to deliver specific drilling and completion designs and execution plans. This includes conceptual design and front end engineering to ensure that any design is optimized for the ultimate project objective. The need to reduce uncertainty is critical in the early stages of the project design phase.

Oil consultants will employ a Technical Limit process to reduce uncertainty and to optimize cost as the engineering process moves into the detailed design and execution planning. The importance of operational sequence and risk mitigation is paramount. The objective of the engineering and planning phase is to develop a rigorous well design and execution programme that will deliver the project objective safely and efficiently. The project objective could be to construct a well, or a well completion, or an extended well test or a well abandonment. The principles involved remain the same irrespective of the scope of work.

Oil Consultants will follow a management system that standardises the technical approach to ensure company and industry compliance in accordance with the law of the operating country.

The Engineering and planning should include but not be limited to:

• Determination of well objectives, goals, scope of work and client requirement
• Develop well offset data package
• Determine design and engineering requirements
• Develop well conceptual preliminary design
• Develop specific well data package and contingency engineering if required
• Optimize Design
• Budgetary AFE costing and estimating
• Develop well construction / completion / test / suspension/ abandonment programme (dependent on scope of work)
• Identify products and Services etc Interface with procurement & logistics
• Detailed AFE costing
• Audit review

Oil Consultants are able to supply highly competent and experienced engineers and operations personnel who are skilled in delivering engineering and design work across the breadth of the industry.

Drilling and Completion

Oil Consultants has the personnel with the key skills to manage drilling and completion execution at the well site. Oil consultants have many drilling and completion specialists from multiple disciplines that can add value to a particular project.

The drilling well construction has to meet the well objectives set out in the well design document and the detailed drilling programmes.

The key to successful operations is to have experienced and competent supervisors, coordinators and engineers that can execute in accordance with the drilling programme and provide solutions to problems that occur during the course of a execution programme.

Oil Consultants can provide operational personnel to manage a project execution – Project Managers, Drilling Superintendents, Drilling Supervisors, Drilling Engineers, and Well site coordinators / operators

Some of the key functions that we can undertake when we provide a holistic solution are the following;

• Mobilise rig
• Mobilise resources
• Pre Spud meeting / workshop
• Schedule and coordinate resources
• Monitor daily activity- reporting to stakeholders- manage data base
• Implement HSE and operational engineering plan - Execute
• Monitor costs
• Manage change – contingency planning
• Implement demobilization plan
• Review, audit and analyse performance
• Internal review / document lessons learned
• Produce End of well report

Oil Consultants provide experienced, competent personnel and proven industry procedures /practices to lower operational risk. Oil consultants can provide the very best solutions to the well construction industry.

Well Testing-Prove Reservoir Potential

Any model on which critical field development decisions must be made demands direct measurement of the reservoir fluid properties, composition, flow rates, pressure, and temperature in order to quantify key characteristics such as connected oil & gas volumes and fluid mobility. Well testing typically consists of installing a temporary completion string in the well and temporary production plant on the rig/rigsite in order to carry out these measurements.

Well testing equipment must perform a wide range of functions:
• Quickly control pressure and flow rates both down-hole and at the surface and shut in the well when necessary
• Accurately meter the fluids and collect surface fluid samples
• Separate the resulting effluent into three fluids: oil, gas, and water
• Dispose of the resulting fluids in an environmentally safe manner.

High-value oil and gas wells, onshore and offshore, require complex as well as simple well testing solutions. We work to optimise well testing methods as well as to perfect well testing operations and processes, and make them as effective and efficient as possible.
To help you mitigate risk and manage uncertainty, our field-proven multidisciplinary teams work with your engineers on every test design and throughout the well testing operation. The result is a program of services that safely meets your test objectives accurately and on time.

Workover / Well Abandonment

Oil Consultants has been providing experienced, competent workover personnel to the industry for many years. Oil Consultants can plan, engineer and manage the execution for workover and well abandonment operations. As with drilling and completion and well testing the key functions are similar. The scopes of work that can be undertaken are the following:
