Case study for the provision of a study team at GCC NOC

OPC has since 2006 had an exclusive contract with a GCC NOC as the petroleum engineering consultancy responsible for providing technical consultants in the areas of petroleum exploration, development and production.

Due to the client’s requirement to ensure data integrity and confidentiality the services are carried out on the client’s premises (office and well site, on and offshore). OPC’s resources comprise of staff and consultants seconded under long term staffing contracts (rotational, residential, single and family status)

OPC’s in-country office provides the workforce management; safe and efficient deployment and resettlement, managing all aspects of immigration,
accommodation, transportation, banking, schooling, social welfare and taxation. OPC’s UK consultant services team provides recruitment, payroll and mobilisation support.

OPC resources

  1. Carry out individual projects e.g., review, project management and
    introduction of intelligent automation for oil wells or enhanced oil recovery
    review for a specific field or
  2. Are fully integrated into the client’s resources for larger projects including
    OPC personnel in senior roles i.e., we have 3 heads of department currently
    deployed for exploration, surveillance and geology and 1 acting head of
    department; offshore reservoir engineering supervising the client’s and OPC
    personnel on wider projects.

February 2010 milestone

In February 2010 OPC was tasked to supply an integrated study team supervised by an OPC team leader to perform a comprehensive technical evaluation of subsurface assumptions within the Full Field Development Plan (FFDP) for the main producing reservoirs under a PSA. The review was to provide the client with information in their discussions with the operator, and for monitoring the future reservoir management of the field.

November 2010 milestone

OPC presented a detailed technical report and presentation to senior staff within the client which was very well received as a direct result of which the operator was asked to revise the planned future FFDP. The report also contained OPC observations per the structuring of client and operator resources, the recommendations of which were implemented.

June 2011 milestone

OPC was contracted to provide a second integrated study team again to be supervised by an OPC team leader to produce an independent study on the FFDP of another field and operator. Again this will review historical data and FDP’s to present a report to the client for evaluation.
