AGR helps increase drilling efficiency
Global oil and gas service provider AGR know that performance is key and is leading the way in improving drilling efficiency without compromising on HSE.
EVP Norway, Sjur Talstad.
AGR’s Well Management model adds value for its clients on complex projects by delivering continuity, experience transfer, flexibility, extensive technical knowledge and improved HSEQ results as well as access to resources. Last year, AGR established a specialised rig team to tackle the problem of sourcing rigs in an exceptionally tight market. With a particular focus on the North Sea, the team is also concentrating on the Falklands, the Mediterranean and Africa bringing together the drilling contractors and the needs of its clients.
The world’s largest well management group AGR was the first to introduce multi-client multi-well campaign bringing significant benefits for both rig owners and operators. The company is currently coordinating a campaign for the Bredford Dolphin rig involving four operators and 12 wells in the Norwegian North Sea for an initial period of 570 days plus extension options. It is also managing a multi-operator campaign for the Borgland Dolphin and is preparing for multi-well campaigns on behalf of MedOil and Genel.
AGR has spud a well every 10 days during the last 13 years. Recently AGR successfully delivered a wildcat HPHT well for RWE Dea Norway in an environmentally sensitive area in the central region of the Norwegian Sea. It also delivered two wells in the Barents Sea using the Leiv Eiriksson rig.
Sjur Talstad, EVP Norway commented: “AGR enjoyed a busy year 2013. We are looking forward to continuous high offshore activity in the upcoming year at our hubs in Norway and the UK. Under the agreement with operator RWE Dea Norge, AGR is to drill two wells on the Titan field. AGR’s Frame Agreement with Statoil for Total Well Management services has just seen an extension declared for another two year period. AGR’s UK Well Management team is working for Svenska on planning, managing and executing Operator’s upcoming exploration campaign offshore Guinea Bissau.
“I am also delighted to point out that our Aberdeen-based Supply Chain Management division was recently awarded Gold Accreditation for UKCS Supply Chain Code of Practice compliance for the second year running. This is a gratifying acknowledgment to our team’s work carried out daily.
AGR has established a comprehensive well supply chain that is available to our clients globally. Through the use of AGR’s contracts, we help our clients to be well-informed regarding market intelligence and are able to source equipment from a secure, contracted supplier base to satisfy client’s ongoing and new project requirements.”
