Technical Company Man
NOVEL helps to increase drilling performance and decrease well costs by providing Technical Company Men to supplement your team and keep costs low.
Our experienced in primary drilling service personnel understands the physics of downhole conditions and can significantly reduce the risk of sticking and partial casing runs.
• Perform all company man duties
• Detailed daily reporting
• Torque and drag forecasting
• Eliminate stuck pipe
• Ensuring successful casing runs
Drilling & Completions Support Engineer
We know how to identify changes and deliver optimal levels of incremental drilling performance, eliminating many of the risks associated with drilling in the early stages of field development.
The Drilling & Completions Support Engineers from NOVEL are professionals who save time by optimising the process from planning to execution.
By daily reporting and giving a look at what's going on downhole, they work onsite closely with your company men, drillers, and third parties to promote best practices, document lessons learned and provide specific recommendations to reduce risk and improve performance.
A large amount of geologic data is acquired during a drilling operation. Ensuring the best quality and effective reporting of this information plays a key role in well design, drilling operations, and later using the data in field studies.
NOVEL ensures close cooperation between the geology, drilling and drilling engineering by providing its own wellsite geologists, who are the main point of contact at the wellsite between drilling rigs and customer representatives.
Our wellsite experts work under the supervision of clients, communicating and discussing clients’ intentions, plans and concerns with the wellsite team. As a part of duty, wellsite geologists track drilling operations in the field, advise on how to drill, collect and analyse samples of material taken from the well, advise field personnel, and submit reports to clients.
Advising people on safety risks is part of a wellsite geologist's role. For instance, our experts offer a technical advice on safely accessing the formation and controlling conditions on site to keep members of the crew safe, as well as protecting expensive drilling equipment.
