Project 1

An operator with subsea tieback of a small gas field wanted an assessment on the need to gravel pack for sand control. We reviewed all data and compared the predicted production and reservoir pressure with other producing gas wells all over the world. We provided a report with engineering rationale for why the well should be gravel packed and recommendation for how to best gravel pack this well.

Project 2

An operator of a medium size subsea field development wanted an assessment on the need to back flow water injection wells prior to injection from host facility. We reviewed the wells and supported a back flow recommendation for two of the wells.

Project 3

A suppliers of wells equipment wanted to provide a training course on well construction methods for its employees. We prepared the course material and provided 2-day training at their office site.

Project 4

A large supplier of well construction technology wanted an independent assessment of the technology owned by a small company prior to acquisition. We assessed the uniqueness and value of the technology from a technology buyer perspective.
