Well Examination verifies that wells are being designed, constructed, operated, suspended and abandoned in accordance with good practice, and that risks from a well are reduced to as low as reasonably practicable. It applies across the lifecycle of a well, from its initial design through to well construction, into the production operations phase and finally to well decommissioning and abandonment.
Well examination is always carried out in accordance with the Well Operator’s Well Examination Scheme, and is targeted at the pressure boundary of the well, ensuring that this is adequate for the intended well’s purpose. It includes an examination of all pressure containment equipment and other barriers, to ensure that the design is robust and fit for purpose.
NRG’s independent well examination service is compliant with global regulations, and ensures that all of the risks have been evaluated, and that the control measures are adequate. Therefore ensuring that the risks of a well release during well construction and operation are as low as reasonably practicable.
As well examiners, NRG are fully independent of the operator’s line management and has been instrumental in the development and execution of Well Examination Schemes for many of the leading UK and international operators since 1996.
