DRILLING PROJECT MANAGEMENT
Australian Drilling Associates provides a complete drilling project management service for offshore and onshore single or multiple exploration and production well campaigns.
The ADA team is structured like an oil company's conventional drilling department providing an experienced team to manage the entire project, including project planning, well design and costing, obtaining the relevant regulatory approvals, contracting of all services, operations management, and project close-out.
A key advantage of outsourcing project management is the immediate access to a multi-disciplined team specific to a project. Particularly for junior independents, but larger operators as well, it eliminates the need for a permanent drilling department, associated overheads and ongoing costs during idle periods.
ADA has a resident core team of qualified professionals, with extensive international engineering and drilling management experience, and is qualified to take on all tasks of a traditional drilling department The team has consistently and successfully achieved significant performance against credible industry benchmarks, by applying the following project management principles:
|Clear definition of project scope and areas of responsibility|
|Delivering clearly defined plans with appropriate risk analysis|
|Provision of 'best-in-class' personnel to supervise the project|
|Using proven and robust systems to control and monitor the project|
|Closing out the project with the pre-agreed documents and reports.|
