A holistic full system modelling approach for old and new wells which provides a more realistic view of well performance at every stage of the well’s life.
If you have a project we can help with or need some technical advice, please get in touch! One of our engineers will be happy to have a chat. Please provide some details below and and we will respond as soon as we can.
Holistic modelling approach offers benefits to old and new wells
Our experience with subsea dynamic loading, down hole tubular assessment and extensive background in fracture mechanics combine to offer a unique well engineering capability, modelling combined loads from the vessel, environment and the well itself. Using finite element analysis, we can zoom in on tubular sections and specific components of the well. When applied to full life cycle modelling, this extremely accurate approach allows us to develop the most cost-effective well designs and aids decision-making on the operation of existing wells.
For well abandonment projects, we collaborate with sister company Claxton to combine virtual and physical aspects to create the best real-life solutions.
