Last year, our drilling team managed a well construction and operations project in the Celtic Sea.
Our experience and knowledge in Ireland was presented at the beginning of November when our Well Management BD team attended the Atlantic Ireland conference in Dublin.
The annual event is organised by the Irish Shelf Petroleum Studies Group of the Petroleum Infrastructure Programme (PIP-ISPSG) and aims to inform the oil and gas community of the latest exploration plans and opportunities in the Irish continental shelf.
The message from the conference was that an increase in exploration drilling from 2018 onwards is expected in the region.
Last year, our drilling team managed a well construction and operations project in the Celtic Sea. The Midleton well turned out to be the first well drilled in Ireland under the recently updated Irish regulatory regime.
The well was planned to intersect two gas targets with potential for pressure depletion. Logistical support was managed by AGR team in country from a supply base in Cork, with all equipment mobilised from Aberdeen. As a result of the 33.7 days' operation, all technical well objectives were delivered. In addition, the team saved 14% versus AFE and delivered a full set of service contract that the client can use for future well operations. There were no logistics related delays.
