ABSTRACT of Presentation

 

Well intervention is defined as an operation that, “alters the state of the well or well geometry”.  On land, the practice is straightforward and relatively economical with limited financial or environmental risk.  Far below the surface of the ocean, subsea well interventions become highly complex operations involving a litany of service companies, marine contractors and specialists.  

Often perceived as high risk/low return, subsea well interventions are often avoided by operators in favor of drilling new assets or simply “kicking the can down the road”.  While the industry still lacks meaningful standardization beyond what is provided in API and other industry publications, the subsea intervention service segment has enjoyed many significant accomplishments.  

Having an understanding of the basic concepts and methodologies of an unconventional subsea intervention may help rid the industry of the “high risk/low return” mindset.  The hope is that operators will engage in optimizing the production of existing subsea wells, as much as drilling new ones.

Martial Burguieres has been directly involved with well interventions since entering the industry over two decades ago.  Since his first summer in high school rebuilding pressure control equipment to his last position pioneering riserless intervention methodologies as a Vice President for Wild Well Control, Martial has been engaged in projects ranging from simple land wells to highly complex ultra-deepwater tie-back wells.  Consistently challenging the status quo, Martial seeks new ways to increase efficiencies, lower costs and decrease risk in managing subsea well assets.  Through his consultancy, Profunda Subsea, Martial seeks to continue helping clients gain an understanding of what tools and techniques are available to increase productivity of their subsea wells and reduce P&A liabilities.
Martial is a graduate of TCU (BS) and Rice University (MBA).
