AGR completes a seven well abandonment campaign in Puffin field

AGR were assigned to plan and execute the permanent well abandonment campaign of two production subsea wells and five suspended subsea wells in the Puffin field for Sinopec Oil and Gas Australia (SOGA).
The Puffin field is located in Southern Timor Sea approximately 250 km off the coast of Australia. Operations were executed between July – November 2014.

  • P&A expertise from a technical, logistical, environmental and regulatory side
  • Project planned and executed in a safe and efficient manner and budget kept as low as possible
  • Daily operational meetings were held at the client’s office thus ensuring the client had a clear understanding of what was happening throughout the campaign
  • The expert solutions and contingency equipment provided by the AGR team to the client for the disintegrated tubing issue on the Puffin-7 well enabled the project to be continued without incurring non productive time.

  • All seven wells were successfully plugged and abandoned with final cost coming in within 1% of AFE, considering the tubing issues encountered on Puffin-7 this was an outstanding result for the client.      
Two separate vessels were contracted to complete the offshore operations and the execution of work on both vessels was undertaken seamlessly and with the highest regard for safety. This is directly related to the detail and effort by AGR during the onshore, planning and preparation phase and as a result significant time was saved offshore and the project came in approximately 15% under budget.
