The well review process involves a thorough understanding of downhole tools, tubing, casing, production equipment, logs, applicable regulations, and production data. IRM abandonment specialists use their extensive knowledge of well operations to correctly scope each project and provide clients with accurate cost estimates.
The abandonment of a well is a non-revenue producing operation where cost control is often the top priority. IRM works closely with service providers to prepare abandonment programs with exceptional value. Through industry connections and decades of experience, IRM delivers innovative and economical well abandonment services using sound engineering and judgement.
All IRM abandonment operations are conducted under the direction of a highly trained completions supervisor who reports directly to the IRM Operations Manager. IRM’s supervisors are all subject to competence assessments, safety training, and where applicable, pre-access drug and alcohol testing. Local Supervisors are all fully IRP-7 compliant and carry a minimum of $2,000,000 general liability insurance.
IRM’s clients are kept abreast of completion operations through daily completion reports submitted by the Wellsite Supervisor which contains a summary of the operations and the tracking of daily and cumulative costs.
Strong wellsite supervision is a key component of successful completions operations.
IRM has been performing well abandonments for over 20 years in North America, South America and the Middle East. With zero lost time HSE incidents and 100% regulatory compliance history, IRM has the knowledge and experience to perform routine and non-routine abandonments in a variety of jurisdictions.
It is particularly important with non-revenue producing projects that all regulatory reporting be done properly the first time. IRM has a wealth of experience in international and domestic regulatory requirements, and can correctly file all necessary documentation to finalize well abandonments and provide clients with a hassle-free operation.
