More oil. Lower cost per barrel. Fewer failures.

Well-trained people who make the best possible contribution to your business.

There are five main ways we help you to reach these goals – and deliver sustainable, long-term results that go straight to your bottom line. You don’t have to take our word for it. Take a look at our case studies and you’ll see what our clients have to say.

Health Check

This is a thorough assessment of your people, systems and processes, leading to a summary of your opportunities and a list of recommendations and action items covering areas such as lift selection; system design; equipment specification, installation and commissioning; monitoring, diagnosis and failure analysis. It brings into focus your organisation’s strengths and weaknesses in straightforward language (we won’t try to confuse you with technical jargon).

We’ll tell you what we really think, not what we think you want to hear, because that’s what will get the best job done for you, most quickly and cost-effectively.

In a few days we’ll help you figure out where you’re spending too much money, what is driving your costs, how to increase your production, where your systems can be improved and what training your staff may need.

It’s invaluable in planning your way ahead – and that can make a big difference to your bottom line.

Consultancy

When you need trouble-shooters to solve your problems – quickly and with confidence – we offer instant access to a team with unrivalled insight, based on experience of many projects worldwide.

That means we’re able to identify the root cause or causes (often it’s a combination of processes, systems, equipment and people) of your issues. Then we come up with solutions tailored to your specific circumstances (we’re not here to push any product and aren’t linked to any manufacturer or supplier).

It not only gets your show back on the road as soon as possible. It also means you won’t have to deal with the same difficulties again and again, with recurring expense, lost time and production.

Training

Our training addresses the specific issues you face, meets the personal and professional needs of your staff and works across disciplines. It’s specialist, practical, easily applied and based on extensive experience, so you reap lasting benefits.

Here’s the science bit. People retain 90% of what they learn when they either teach someone else or use the information immediately. Retention stands at 75% when they practice what they’ve learned and 50% when they take part in a group discussion.

At the other end of the scale, you remember just 5% of what you’ve been told in a lecture, 10% of what you learn by reading, 20% of an audio-visual and 30% of what’s taught in a demonstration.

Competency Development

Training isn’t a one-off event. Technology changes, problems mutate and your staff move on – one industry study suggests that as many as 40% of your staff are likely to retire within ten years, taking their experience and knowledge with them. You need to develop your existing and future talent regularly if your business is going to succeed and keep on succeeding.

Our competency development offering combines training and mentoring to nurture a team with sustainable expertise in artificial lift and optimising production.

We focus on people, processes and tools to ensure that knowledge and experience aren’t restricted to a few senior figures. It’s about helping everyone to keep learning – and sharing their knowledge and insights to benefit your business.

Monitoring

Not every ESP functions perfectly all the time but manufacturers aren’t too interested in admitting it – they’d rather the equipment failed and you paid for a new set. Asking them to solve your problems is a bit like allowing the fox to guard the henhouse.

That’s where we come in, with real time or periodic analysis of your wells (you choose the option that suits you best) to identify when and where you’re losing production.

We have also developed bespoke software that separates ESP performance from well inflow performance and allows you to quantify both.

It will show you what the pumping is really doing, when it has a problem (such as wear) that’s resulting in lost production, quantifies how much production you’re losing and allows you to take a business decision on how to optimise production.
