Well Plugging and Abandonment (P&A)
- Eliminate maintenance costs by permanently sealing off, uneconomical or unsafe wells.
- Meet regulatory obligations to retire wells at the end of their lives as per furnished guidelines.
- Reduce liabilities in general and asset retirement obligation (ARO).
- Avoid serious HSE issues and related expensive liabilities if well integrity situation deteriorates and gets out of hands.
If wells are not plugged & abandoned (P&A) correctly, depending upon nature and type of well, there could be significant repercussions such as a major HSE event, where hydrocarbons could leak & flow uncontrollably to surface and start to pollute environment. Re-doing P&A is an extremely expensive exercise and should be avoided at all costs. It is critical to ensure that all P&As are done right, the very first time, using the right people.
OWE’s P&A Philosophy & Approach: OWE’s philosophy is to design & execute well Plugging and Abandonment (P&A) operations in such a way that nothing is left to chance, not even the unexpected. As a part of our detailed risk assessment, we cover a variety of what-if (possible) scenarios and always build contingencies to stay on top of well integrity & safety.
As a first step, using our specialist data analysis skills, OWE analyzes the candidate wells and churns out, mission critical information pieces before exploring possible P&A design options. OWE works diligently towards designs, which are highly-customized and fit-for-purpose thus our designs tend to be highly cost-effective when it comes to execution.
As a part of our execution procedures, we always verify barriers are correctly placed & all reservoirs are permanently sealed-off before moving on to next steps in line.
OWE’s P&A analytics is a powerful cost-saving tool. Our RT analytics provides solid benchmarking opportunities & it allows us to achieve a step-change improvement every time we are engaged. OWE’s specialist data analytics provides, a clear record of P&A operations at every step of the execution phase. Due to OWE’s style of work, operators can easily walk back through the P&A timeline, whenever it is required to revisit their P&A operations.
In order to ensure that all applicable cost-saving opportunities are fully explored, OWE P&A designs formally go through Assess, Select, Define (P&A Program) & Execute phases to ensure P&A is systematically optimized at every step including the execution phase.
OWE P&A experienced team covers all aspects of P&A project stages from initial concept to full-blown field execution. OWE follows a detailed approach to P&A but it could be summarized into a high-level roadmap as per snapshot below:
