Lessons from Brent Alpha P&A – Abstract

A 26 Well P&A campaign was completed between October 2016 and November 2018 on the Brent Alpha platform. This campaign finished significantly ahead of initial plan and was widely regarded as a successful project with multiple key learnings, both technical and non-technical, worth sharing. These lessons will be summarised during the presentation in four focus areas:

– Isolation Strategy: Zones requiring isolation, determination of flow potential.
– Ways of Working: Team structure, processes, interfaces.
– Campaign Delivery: Upfront preparation, plug and lubricate, offline opportunities.
– Barriers: Barrier setting techniques/technologies, remediation, verification.
