P&A Project Management and Engineering

Minimize well abandonment risk, maximize safety and efficiency with single-source project management

Well abandonment projects require careful planning and typically involve the participation and integration of multiple services. Managing these projects is simplified, and the related risks are minimized, when sourcing through a single supplier offering responsibility for the entire process.

Baker Hughes Integrated Operations provides experienced project managers and engineers who work closely with customers and third-party personnel to ensure flawless execution of well abandonment operations. This includes making sure that appropriate contingencies are properly planned and that the required experts and equipment are delivered on time, every time. Our project managers will develop and adapt individual P&A plans based on the well’s specific operating environment—from subsea installations and offshore platforms (with or without a rig) to remote land-based well sites.

Baker Hughes experts can manage your complete project, from permit applications through final abandonment, with a focus on safety and efficiency. Our project management teams remain current on all international and local regulatory requirements to ensure complete environmental compliance.

Improve communication for optimized safety and efficiency

During the project’s execution phase, additional expertise is accessible 24/7 through the Baker Hughes BEACON™ real-time remote collaboration platform. Baker Hughes experts, third-party suppliers, and clients can collaborate quickly and efficiently, regardless of their location, to support plug and abandonment operations anywhere in the world. The BEACON platform provides an extension of the well site by virtually integrating specialized services and multidisciplinary experts with your team to optimize decisions and address issues proactively before they become problems. Additionally, the Baker Hughes global infrastructure lets us respond quickly to meet any unexpected requirements.
