Based in Calgary, Alberta, this client operates in five core areas throughout the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. The project was conducted with the largest conventional oil and natural gas producing income trust in North America with an average daily production of approximately 200,000 barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) per day plus probable reserves of approximately 729 million BOE.
Our client had well servicing costs in current production fields which were rising per unit of output with the majority of these costs arising from work conducted by third party contractors (drilling companies). Our client’s goal was to reduce these costs without negatively affecting production but required formalized processes and systems to manage and control these costs.
Some significant results obtained by our Client included:
Well Maintenance Project Savings
Well Maintenance Annualized Savings
Oil & Gas Well Maintenance Supervisory Activities
I would also like to thank Calgary for bringing PVA to the initial project, which has helped us on implementing new Management Systems. These changes have greatly increased quality communication, accountability, roles and responsibilities. Together we were able to attain positive results with both Field Operations and Well Servicing..
Together with our Partnership with PVA to improve our Field and Well Service we have shown great results and success in continued productivity improvement. The process has been successful in achieving results and we will continue to strive forward to improve in the future.
I was anxious to start the Rig Project as when talking to other superintendents from other sectors as I heard of the improvements that they have made.
During the course of the project the biggest challenge was change in the behaviors and attitudes, which is always difficult at best. The project has definitely helped us implement a system that sets standards, expectations, roles and responsibilities, which also increased the communication process between Field Personnel and with Management.
I need you to work with me to make sure that I am seeing the things that my guys aren’t doing because I am in this every day and I, just like any boss, find it helpful for someone to come in and help me because I want to be better at what I do.
