Editor’s Notes:

  • Ensco Offshore UK Ltd. plugged and abandoned (P&A) 18 wells on six platforms in the southern North Sea with zero lost-time or recordable incidents. They also played a significant role in reducing well P&A time from 30 days to a best case of 12.6 days.
  • Nabors Alaska Drilling delivered record levels of performance in all three rig categories (coiled tubing, workover and rotary drilling) and contributed to a record-low total recordable rate for Alaska Drilling & Wells. Their contributions resulted in a 2015 incremental production rate add of 15,667 BOPD at Kuparuk and the project being delivered under budget. 
  • Despite several force majeure events, CB&I Constructors Pty Ltd. mitigated all cost and schedule impacts and completed the two 160,000 m3 LNG tanks for the Australia Pacific Liquefied Natural Gas project within the original schedule and budget. They demonstrated best practice personnel management, material expediting, preservation and management and general housekeeping of their worksite, setting a great example and clear expectations for the other contractors on site. They also had two million man hours without a lost-time incident.
  • After a nearly 10-year absence from working with ConocoPhillips Alaska, Conam Construction played a critical role in enabling DS-2S to start up two-and-a-half months ahead of schedule. Conam demonstrated adaptability by adjusting their work plans and ensuring the project stayed on the critical path despite facing weather-related delays of critical materials and modules. They completed 145,000 hours of work with a total recordable incident rate of 0.0.
  • Eagle Ford Reclamation Company LLC (EFRC) enabled 100 percent recycling of all Eagle Ford oil-based cutting waste, resulting in significant savings per well. The close proximity of EFRC’s facilities to ConocoPhillips’ operations reduced trucking distance by approximately 40 percent and removed vehicles from busy interstates and highways.
  • Despite highly complex and challenging well designs, Schlumberger had up time of almost 100 percent (99.6 percent), an improvement in performance over the two previous years. Their real-time geosteering technologies delivered some of the highest producing wells drilled by ConocoPhillips in 2015, with runs averaging 93 percent in zone on lateral footage drilled.
