With well intervention and P&A activity ramping up from Mauritania to Angola, operators are working more collaboratively with contractors taking advantage of new business development opportunities offshore West Africa. The below well intervention market overview offers:
.An analysis of common drivers for activity as well as West African well work hotspots to highlight which areas are ripe for well intervention and P&A projects
.A review of recent regional projects including a LWI safety valve remediation, a 7-well rigless live well intervention campaign and several P&A projects
.An overview of technologies required to drive project efficiency including LWI vessels, riserless technology, coiled tubing, downhole tools, cementing & data logging tools
Platform Petroleum, the Nigerian independent, celebrated its 15th anniversary last Sunday, December 17, describing 2017 as its highest performing year in terms of crude oil production.
“We reached an all-time record of three thousand six hundred barrels of oil per day (3,600BOPD) this year”, Osa Owieadolor, the company’s chief executive, told guests at a ceremony held in a swank venue, located close to the southern Atlantic, in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial hub. “With the highest production since first oil in 2007, we have had cumulative output of over 1Million barrels (gross) this year so far”.
Ofserv and Sonomatic are organizing an open enrollment Non-Intrusive Inspection (NII) workshop in Lagos, Nigeria.
“This highly interactive workshop will introduce the concepts of NII and sensitize the Industry about its benefits as a cost-effective asset integrity methodology”, the organisers explain in a statement.
“NII allows comprehensive inspection of pressure vessels to be performed while on-line, eliminating the need for the inspection to be carried out only during shut downs. This minimizes shut down durations and allows process plant operators to maximize production. As such NII is being used increasingly by operators worldwide. Sonomatic has played a major role in the development of NII practices and has worked with many of the world’s leading Oil and Gas companies in delivering effective NII projects.
Participants in the workshop will gain an understanding of the benefits of NII, the main stages in the NII process, how NII is applied in practice and key success factors to effective NII. Case studies of successful projects and highlighting best practice will also be presented.
We are committed to providing cutting edge inspection solutions that enable clients to manage the integrity of maturing assets, while making informed and cost-¬¬effective decisions crucial to the extension and safety of plant life.
“This workshop is at no cost to attendees and we look forward to welcoming your delegation”, Ofserv and Sonomatic conclude in the statement.
