ONSHORE DRILLING CAMPAIGN IN MEXICO COMPLETED BY SIMMONS EDECO


ONSHORE DRILLING CAMPAIGN IN MEXICO COMPLETED BY SIMMONS EDECO

Operation Carried Out on Panuco Field

CALGARY, Canada – April 30, 2020 – SIMMONS EDECO, a leading supplier of onshore drilling and workover services to the global oil and gas industry, today announced that it has successfully completed a second series of development drilling of wells for a major oilfield services company in Mexico.

SIMMONS EDECO commenced drilling on the first of three horizontal wells on Panuco Field in late November 2019.  The wells were efficiently drilled to measured depths in the 890-meter range on relatively small lease sizes of approximately 60 x 70 meters.  Although the wells are in relatively flat, accessible terrain, the small lease size required the use of a drilling rig that can operate easily within a confined space. 

Wells drilled on schedule with minimal downtime

As with the previous drilling campaign, SIMMONS EDECO used the MD Cowan Super Single Drilling Rig®, which has a compact footprint and can maneuver within a limited area. As a result, all wells were completed as planned in late January 2020.  With the reliable performance of the drilling rig throughout, just three hours of non-productive time were realized.  The entire operation, from mobilisation to demobilisation, was completed in 56 days.

The Panuco Field drilling operation was carried out by a team of approximately 40 experienced crewmembers, primarily from Mexico, assisted by engineering staff and technicians based at the SIMMONS EDECO base in Poza Rica de Hidalgo, Veracruz. Last year, SIMMONS EDECO drilled 13 deviated “S”-type wells in southern Mexico for this long-term customer. They will be integrated into a field wide steam injection program.  The success of this drilling campaign is one of the key reasons that SIMMONS EDECO was selected to carry out this recent operation. 

“This operation further underscores our ability to provide solutions for our customers.  In this case, drilling horizontal wells within a limited space,” said Niels Versfeld, CEO of SIMMONS EDECO.  “We're very excited about this because it provides concrete evidence of the fact that we effectively drill a wide variety of wells to target depth, whether they are deviated or horizontal. The fact that it was achieved without a single reportable safety incident and minimal downtime is a tribute to the safety culture that we have worked hard to nurture with this customer over the years,” he added.
