It's often said that it's obvious why you need to conduct a formal DWOP for a highly expensive deepwater well but when it comes to lower cost wells we cannot afford the cost of a DWOP.
We thought we would challenge this thinking – after all it’s the fracking wells on mainland North America that are expensive and struggling as oil goes below $30/bbl. We explain, below, why you can't afford not to plan properly and we show the benefits of a recent DWOP by Relentless Pursuit of Perfection Ltd.
November saw another first for rp2 in facilitating our first Canadian DWOP. The one-day session brought 40 operator and contractor personnel together in Calgary to support the re-start of a development drilling campaign in northern Alberta.
Workshop focus teams generated 177 potential action points for optimisation opportunity across all well phases and activities. Flat time opportunities alone accounted for 11% of current average well times with an ongoing impact of over $4M on an annualised basis.
Participant feedback included:
- "It really helps to identify optimisation opportunities in a DWOP like this"
- "Good way to optimise and get input on drilling program"
- "Good to get together with folks outside of my field"
- "Group work on well procedures. I liked it because I'm new and it helped me understand the processes"
- "Very good presentation, best one yet"
- "Great workshop!"
