On time.On budget. On plan.
The tight margins associated with unconventional wells demand truly exceptional efficiency. Thankfully, our highly experienced team have all the competency and knowledge you need to keep your operation on plan. Where efficiency drives can often lead to standardization – our approach is much more adaptable. Anticipating challenges and assessing the properties of each well, right down to the quality of source water, to optimize the impact of fluid systems on operational performance.
Drive efficiencies to reduce drilling days and costs
Our range of unconventional drilling solutions has been engineered to combat a wide variety of conditions commonly encountered with unconventional wells. Utilizing special polymers to overcome challenges such as variable formation mineralogy or extended fluid contact with extreme temperatures in deep hot wellbores.
