AGR was appointed to undertake a six well drilling campaign in the North Falklands Basin in 2009. Six wells became 22 wells with operations continuing into 2012 with two rigs.
With no local mechanisms or infrastructure in place to support such an operation and the remoteness of the Falkland Islands this project demanded a unique and challenging logistical support service be put into action.
AGR needed to construct a logistics base at Port Stanley. A total of 780 man days were consumed in just three months to get the base scoped, tendered, built and ready for operations.
An initial load out from Aberdeen Harbour with approx. 9,000 tonnes of cargo – the largest consignment of its kind to leave Aberdeen Harbour in history – was shipped to the newly constructed base.
AGR implemented measures which increased efficiency of operations giving better control and flexibility which delivered added value to AGR’s clients.
Campaign facts and figures:
- Over 1 million man hours
- Number Of Wells Drilled: 22
- Total Number Of Equipment Tons Shipped: In excess Of 25,000 tonnes.
