The success of a workover operation is always gauged by the incremental production. IRM understands that increased production is the primary objective of every re-completion, workover or maintenance operation and uses sound engineering to ensure that every factor is considered when designing a workover program. An understanding of each individual reservoir is absolutely necessary in these types of projects, and IRM serves its clients by using every available technology to ensure that proper analysis is performed in the most cost effective manner possible. Whether oil, gas, liquids-rich gas, or heavy oil, IRM can help to increase productivity and cash-flow.
Re-completion operations are performed when producing wells stand to benefit from some form of additional stimulation. IRM has experience in many re-completion operations including uphole perforating, acidizing and fracturing. Whether remedial or as a means of increasing production, IRM can assist in implementing a successful re-completion that is on time and on budget.
A workover is any operation in which production tubing is removed from the well. There are many types of workovers including pump changes, tubing changes, and downhole reconfigurations. IRM has experience with various workover operations and can assist in properly sizing tubing and pumps of all types.
Production operations are those which increase hydrocarbon production by means of additional equipment or reconfigurations of existing equipment. IRM assists its clients with many production operations including shifting sleeves, packer setting, commingling operations and artificial lift installation. We have the experience to assist our clients in the selection and implementation of an effective production increasing operation.
A zonal abandonment involves the isolation of chosen formations in an attempt to decrease undesirable flow into the wellbore.The abandonment of water producing zones can often help to reduce operational costs and increase productivity. IRM has the expertise required to identify problematic zones and design a suitable abandonment program to help increase profitability.
Every hydrocarbon producing well requires a certain degree of regular maintenance. From clean-outs and swabbing to casing patches and wellhead repair, IRM uses its extensive knowledge of downhole tools and equipment to perform every job as efficiently as possible. All IRM field supervisors meet IRP-7 requirements and have the broad experience needed to properly manage maintenance operations. With an emphasis on strong field supervision and exception access to services, IRM can assist in maintenance operations on every type of hydrocarbon producing well.
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.
