Well management and engineering

Do you find yourself relying on differing levels of third-party support to supplement your core team and expertise?

Petrofac offers the complete capability to successfully manage any well-related project – either as a fully outsourced service, or part of your team.  

We design, construct, manage and maintain well integrity

From full-scale well operation, engineering and construction, where we are the lead contractor and co-ordinate service providers, through to the provision of small, integrated project teams – our well project management services are designed to support your needs.

We understand that there is no one-size-fits-all, so we tailor our services to complement your existing in-house capability and can quickly scale up or down to meet your requirements.
