Petrofac Integrated Energy Services was awarded its first Production Enhancement services contract by Petrom in Romania in 2010, for which the business will provide production enhancement services for the Ticleni oilfield and its eight satellite fields. Petrom remains the concession holder and the initial 15-year contract with Petrofac includes an option for extension by a further ten years.
Ticleni, a mature onshore field which has been operating for more than 60 years, is located in South-western Romania and has more than 1,000 wells, of which around 250 are currently producing a total of approximately 3,500 barrels of oil per day.
Petrofac manages all aspects of the fields' activity on behalf of Petrom. Under the Production Enhancement contract, Petrofac provides a range of services that increase production through improving recovery rates, optimise operational efficiencies and upgrade the facilities. This innovative approach generates additional value by investing and leveraging Petrofac’s operations, drilling management, production engineering, facilities upgrade and training skills.
The award of the Ticleni contract is exciting for Petrofac and the first of its kind for our group. Within Production Solutions we will be combining our significant production and well engineering knowledge with the wider operations and training capability from within the Petrofac group to deliver an integrated solution for these fields in alignment with Petrom.
