The value of an engineered well design cannot be overstated. IRM provides additional value to our clients by taking time to understand the long and short term strategies of the exploration team. Through IRM’s experience in various resource plays, alternative execution strategies can be proposed that satisfy the corporate objectives allowing our clients to make informed go-forward decisions that fall within a managed risk profile.
IRM has drilling experience in many resource plays including formations such as the Montney, the Cardium, the Bakken, the Viking, the Duvernay, and others, drilling for both gas and oil.
Unconventional energy reservoirs include heavy oil, tight oil and gas, shale oil and gas reservoirs, and coal-bed methane.
Heavy oil recovery methods include primary production, thermal production, and cold enhanced oil recovery (EOR). The selection of any of these methods will depend on many factors, including the stage of reservoir production, formation and fluid properties, reservoir geology, available production and transportation facilities, and the underlying heavy oil economics in a particular region.
IRM has extensive experience in drilling heavy oil wells efficiently and at lower costs than our peers.
IRM has successfully drilled a multitude of tight reservoir wells that have been set up for various completion strategies.
Strong Wellsite supervision is a key component of successful drilling operations.
