Exploration Drilling Support

Through our strategic alliances we are able to provide a highly experienced team that can offer a full Completion and Work-over support service for Exploration projects. With a focus on completion, workover, drilling and facilities projects in both Oil & Gas environments we understand the science and art of drilling operations, completion practices and post-completion wellbore enhancement or remedial workover techniques. We know how to work with Reservoir Engineers understanding what can be done within open-hole and cased wells as they execute reservoir management and how the producing reservoir can be damaged or stimulated by what they do. We can visualize what is happening “downhole”, with a keen appreciation for wellbore risks and how drilling and completion practices can alter reservoir interpretation and performance.

With technical, field, service, support and supervisory skills we can fit in seamlessly with any team at any level.
