Work preparation and project execution

Work preparation and project execution (step 4 & 5)

The WEProcess consists of the following five steps for the planning and the execution phase of a well construction project :

1. Planning (project definition)
2. Pre-engineering (concept selection)
3. Detailed engineering
4. Work preparation (operations engineering)
5. Project execution

Work preparation (operations engineering)

Operations engineering results in a step by step drilling program, final bill of materials and final cost estimate to be approved for expenditure. After QAQC and approval, this phase results in a ‘realisation programme’ that needs the customer’s approval. Following customer approval, contracts are made and orders placed.

Project execution

At project execution, the actual drilling or workover activities are managed & supervised according to the detailed drilling program, and performance is measured against this program.
