Between the oilfield services approach and the traditional oil and gas independent.
Our niche is our focus on enhancing mature oil&gas fields. We will invest and take the execution and production risk without taking ownership of the production or reserves.
Our services are our investment aimed at increasing the production, the reserves, and prolonging the economic life of the oil&gas fields we operate.
Our technical capabilities and expertise are focused on fit for purpose technologies and processes for old wells and mature Oil & Gas fields rehabilitation.
We typically invest in the rejuvenation of these assets taking execution and incremental production risks through long term Production Enhancement Contract (PEC).
Subsurface analysis and reservoir modelling.
We create new databases and new reservoir models by collecting, correcting, digitizing and aggregating old well and reservoir data that can be accessed by all relevant users. <br><br>New data is acquired to complete and be integrated with existing data. Based on the new database and models production enhancement opportunities evaluation process covers all the key disciplines involved in the reservoir studies process: geophysics, geology, petrophysics, reservoir engineering, production technology and well completions. <br><br>Custom software and workflows were developed to efficiently screen and rank the opportunities. <br><br>Best practices and failure analysis are recorded and disseminated throughout the team to continuously improve the processes.
Stimulations, sand & water control.
We have extensive expertise and experience around designing fit for purpose hydraulic fracturing, selecting water shut off technologies, Gravel Pack, Re-perforations, Wireline pulsating and various chemical treatments.
Artificial Lift & Completions.
We enhance and optimise the existing completion and artificial lift system using Progressive Cavity Pump (PCP), Electrical Submersible Pump (ESP), Sucker Rod Pump (SRP), Linear Rod Pump (LRP), Gas lift, velocity and capillary string and dual completion.
Ensuring a continuous successful and economical flow of hydrocarbon stream from the reservoir to the point of sale can be a challenge with mature oil and gas assets. We have developed in-depth knowledge around the recipe design of H2S scavengers, surfactants and dissolvent, paraffin inhibitors, scale inhibitors, corrosion inhibitors and emulsifiers.
Typically the surface facilities and the production processes were made for a peak production level that was much higher than the actual product and has been developed with technologies and environmental constraints different than the ones we have today. Therefore we focus on surface facilities optimisation and modernisation automation, real-time monitoring and workforce lean reorganisation.
Secondary and Third recovery.
As pressure maintenance is the main challenge of mature oil and gas field we have internal expertise and capabilities around water flooding, Polymer injection, Bio-surfactant Enzyme injection and CO2 injection.
Environmental Footprint Reduction
Reducing the ecological footprint of the operations and extending their lifespan.
Typically we intervene in fields that have been developed and reached their peak production many years ago. We will optimise the production processes to adapt to the new production volumes by implementing efficient new technologies and redesigning the surface facilities and processes.
We are continuously looking for the best solutions to improve our energy performance, conducting regular analysis to reduce the energy consumption impact of our operations.
We have implemented a certified Energy Management System following the SR EN ISO 50001:2011 requirements.
The Energy Management System allows us to achieve our commitments, prove compliance with internationally recognized standard requirements and with the applicable legal requirements, as well as to take action when necessary to improve our performance.
Green House Gas Emissions Reductions
The main contributors of GHG emissions in mature oil and gas assets are methane leakage from old pipelines and obsolete and oversized surface facilities, non-routine flaring and excessive energy consumption.
We focus our investment in reducing the impact of these three contributors by upgrading, modernizing and reducing the footprint of the surface facilities.
The implementation of Laser Methane detectors connected to our real-time monitoring system helped to reduce the leaked volume with a faster intervention.
Reducing Soil Contamination
Soil contamination is measured by the number and severity of the spills that affect the soil.
Our capabilities are focused on reducing the number of spills as well as the spill detection and intervention time. We have developed a patented real-time leak monitoring system that improves intervention time and also analyses the trend to help us predict future problem areas where we can do preventive maintenance.
Typically, water wells are used to supply water for industrial and domestic purposes.
The main significant water consuming installations are the boiler plants providing technological steam, the compressor cooling system, the well intervention operations, and the cleaning of drilling and equipment/tubular materials.
Our expertise and capabilities are focused around:
- Putting in place accurate and reliable water consumption measurement to analyze and optimize them afterwards.
Downsizing the parks inventory, thus eliminating boilers from surface facilities.
- Replacing old energy-intensive boilers, heaters and old water cooling towers with more efficient equipment.
- Repairing or replacing water pipelines and hydrant systems where leaks were recorded;
All wastewater from the facilities and rig sites are managed according to the Environmental Management Plan to ensure that effluent discharge complies with legal and standard requirements.
Stranded gas solutions
We have the experience and capabilities to implement, for example, gas to power generation solutions that help to produce an oilfield sustainably as gas ratio increase over time.
Over solutions include Compressed natural gas (CNG) and LNG (liquefied natural gas).
Waste management is an important part of the environmental control required to manage the oil & gas production process in a clean and environmentally friendly manner. Both hazardous and non-hazardous waste should be properly managed, as per the legal requirements.
To minimize the quantities of waste generated by the production activity, the following are considered:
- Downsizing to fit for purpose surface facilities footprint
- Reducing materials losses by observing the discipline, prescriptions and technological specifications;
- Performing the preventive maintenance program to reduce the losses due to technical failures/incidents;
- Use of “first come, first gone” rule for raw materials used
Mature to Nature
We take a series of steps to leave a clean environment after our operations come to an end, returning mature fields to nature with the help of our environmentalists and soil remediation experts.
We are one of the few companies in our business segment that not only focus on optimising and extending the life of the mature assets, developed tenth of years ago but also ensure we efficiently abandoned and decommission them. At the end of their economic life, we leave them as if nothing industrial ever happened there. Our priorities are to leave a clean, decontaminated soil and a rehabilitated environment for the local populations.
We have a strong culture of environment’s protection, and in each country we operate, 100% of our workforce and management are local. This is boosting the commitment to work in the cleanest and safest environment.
A dedicated team of environmentalists and soil remediation specialists are screening every project we are operating on or doing the due diligence of new projects.
