Total Project Management

Complete Management for Small, Midsize, and Large Oil & Gas Projects

Our operator clients choose us because we do the same things they do. Our experienced personnel cost-efficiently manage day-to-day drilling, completion, workover, and production.
As a de facto operator, we:
  • Plan, coordinate, and execute projects
  • Work with partners, suppliers, and service providers
  • Source the experienced personnel needed for the project—whole project teams or individual engineers, rig supervisors, drilling supervisors, and production personnel
  • Manage procurement and logistics
We comply with operator directions when provided, or implement our own standard procedures that drive our consistent approach for client success. Our processes are not static. We plan, estimate, and implement—and review execution to identify best practices for continuous improvement. That’s why our clients trust us with their wells.
Example Projects:
  • Suriname -- Shallow-water oil and gas exploration campaign. Planning and engineering, operations, logistics.
  • Kurdistan -- Drilling and workover of onshore wells in Iraq, including drilling management, critical well engineering, and supervision.
