Operations services

BP Miller - view from above

At Petrofac, we know what it takes to increase production safely and maximise efficiency from oil and gas operations. We do it every day.

For more than 25 years we have delivered fit-for-purpose operations and maintenance (O&M) and facilities management solutions. Our work has increased production, optimised efficiency, reduced OPEX and lowered lifting costs, thereby increasing economic viability and extending field life.

Our services include:

Operations and maintenance: From the provision of competent and skilled labour through to managed O&M services we tailor our solutions to deliver in alignment with the operating philosophy of the asset and the strategic needs of each client.

Duty Holder (Installation Operator): A full asset management solution to deliver reduced OPEX and improve production and efficiency in line with each clients’ asset objectives. We pioneered and have been delivering this service for 20 years, enabling nine new entrants to become operators in highly regulated environments. Our model is also just as effective in supporting assets in the late life and decommissioning phases.

Service Operator: We combine our role as Installation Operator with that of Pipeline Operator and Well Operator to assume full responsibility for the impacts and associated activities of asset management, environmental management, well activities and pipeline operations.

Transition management: Through a dedicated transition team, we deliver tailored transition activities focused on safely and successfully transferring people and asset responsibilities with no impact to ongoing operations.

Our flexible service capability, combined with our depth of operating and transition experience, enables us to provide integrated asset and operations management solutions which ensure safe and cost-effective outcomes.
