In September 2021, InGauge Energy was contracted to perform a review of drilling and intervention operations, engineering planning and subsurface assessment practices and make recommendations to assist with cost reduction through improved efficiencies. Other considerations included developing an integrated plan such that contracting, well design, and interventions could assist in improved efficiencies and capture cost savings in 2022 and beyond.
inGauge was appointed to provide services to assist the client in a broad range of subsurface and well engineering consulting requirements. A technical health check was requested to identify gaps in current Geothermal practices, systems and processes when compared with Oil and Gas systems, practices and processes including the following areas in the project life cycle;
- Subsurface appraisal
- Operations execution
- Procurement Strategy
The aim of the review was to identify potential areas for a significant target unit cost reduction. The review was conducted to highlight project efficiency and cost reduction initiatives in the short, medium and long term to deliver the cost reduction target.
inGauge utilised a multidisciplinary inhouse team to conduct the review and is working with the operator in an ongoing partnership. The future collaboration will further analyse current practices whilst assisting with the implementation of initiatives to increase efficiency and drive down operational cost.
This is another example of a client taking advantage of our large team of in-house specialists, as we work across a diverse portfolio of projects, inGauge has the ability to deploy resources on an as required basis.
inGauge assists CTSCo to drill West Moonie 2, achieves all critical well objectives, on time and under budget
CTSCo’s West Moonie 2 well has been completed on time and below budget with all objectives achieved. inGauge managed the well design, preplanning and execution on behalf of CTSCo.
inGauge provided engineering and project execution for the 2021 workover campaign aimed at enhancing production from the Glenaras Lateral Pilot area. The programme has now been completed and is showing signs of success with gas rates in the field increasing to near 80 Mscfd.
inGauge Energy has started a project with a major Australian gas producer to review and update their well integrity management system. The aim of the project is to be much more pre-emptive and targeted in response to well integrity issues to ensure money is spent resolving issues rather than simply re-confirming known problems.
