Conducting 23 well abandonments and 3 end of field-life projects Fraser Well Management is well placed to deliver your well abandonment needs. Applying a process driven approach we are able to offer a full turnkey end-to-end solution for well abandonment.  Our well abandonment portfolio to date covers subsea, platform, land and standalone exploration/appraisal wells.

We are not aligned with any one technique, method or vessel type enabling us to take an objective, bottom-up approach to well abandonment. Our detailed understanding of Oil and Gas UK and NORSOK D10 abandonment guidelines allows us to give our clients total assurance of a well abandoned in perpetuity.

In common with our Well Management principles and utilising our Well Integrity Plus® process we undertake abandonment projects in a cost-effective manner consistently delivering high-quality outcomes. Our teams have the experience and resources to manage every phase from planning and regulatory interface through contracts and procurement, to wellsite operations and project close-out.

To date we have conducted abandonment studies covering diverse topics such as:

  • Determination and validation of abandonment commercial liability

  • Suitability study comparing MODU, LWIV and JULB

  • Detailed time and cost estimates using FWMs WellCET tool

  • Evaluation of abandonments methodologies

  • Applicability of new technologies

  • Optimisation of multi-slot well abandonments
