Living the Limit is believing that it is right to do the very best we can…
… With what we have got
… With what we could get
The way we help companies break drilling records, and save millions, is partly through our world renowned workshops. We specialise in facilitating these important planning events:
- Drill-well-on-paper (DWOP)
- Test-well-on-Paper (TWOP)
- Complete Well-on-paper (CWOP)
- Supply-well-on-paper (SWOP)
- Start-up Field on Paper (SUFOP)
We have got these processes down to an almost perfect science. Through working with the worlds best and brightest engineers, geologists, scientists and other captains of our industry, we are able to identify:
- Every ‘typical’ opportunity for efficiency.
- Job specific location, technique or technology related gains.
- Innovative ‘out of the box’ marginal gains that we even surprise ourselves with!
The reason why we are able to do this, is that we do it month in, month out, on a global basis – with people who are discovering and solving such problems every day.
We are at the cutting edge of the latest advances in drilling processes, and proud of it!
These benefits to client drilling programs come from experience, dedication and hard work. There is no secret to these things, but they are rewards that come from having a laser targeted focus and an un-blinkable eye on our goals.
The services that we provide in our workshops are essential if you want your next drilling program to be optimised.
“The Perfect Outcome”
There are some ‘secret sauce’ special ingredients to our robust track record however…
The main ingredient to our secret sauce is called ‘Living the Limit’.
How does a team reach greatness? To use a sporting analogy, why will a strong squad always defeat a great coach with a handful of star players?
The way that teams (or companies) break records is by coming together as one. With a shared vision and commitment to excellence.
Individuals also experience the same phenomena, the ‘head game’ where every boxing match, game of snooker or 100 meter sprint is won in the mind first.
We all know how this state of peak performance is reached in an individual since we have all experienced it at different times of our lives. The times where we seem to have a Midas touch, where everything seems to ‘go right for us’. These peak states do not happen by random chance, they can be nurtured.
As oil and gas professionals who experience some of the toughest challenges, and rewards that are possible in the human condition, we all understand this concept… Right?
The billion dollar question…
Q) How do we empower our whole team to enter this peak state?
… Where everyone thinks as one, solves problems in advance and does it in a way that makes them well up with emotion? Even years later when remembering those times?
This is the billion dollar question. Million dollar questions are for wannabe’s. The cost of a drilling program is measured in many millions. The future of an oil company can be measured in billions.
Mid sized oil companies, drilling companies and oil field service companies go out of business all the time.
What is the difference between the ones that fail, and the ones that grow over time?
- Government subsidies/red tape?
These are the types of things that factor, but also ones that we have little to no control over!
What can we control?
We can control the team spirit, synergy and professionalism of the good people who are answering to us and who we are responsible for.
We can meet political, economic, and geographical challenges as a fractured group of detached individuals…
Or we can laugh in the face of lady luck with the solidarity if a world class team, where each member is equal. Where every single person is committed, professional and passionate about getting a good result.
This forms the philosophy of our ‘Living the Limit’ approach to team building!
