The subsurface is where effective well abandonment begins.

Well-Safe Solutions offers a market-leading combination of subsurface basis of design (SSBoD) and well engineering expertise.

Our detailed technical studies and design work enables our integrated team to optimise barrier placement whilst respecting fundamental subsurface isolation principles in oil, gas and condensate wells worldwide.

Our offering is flexible enough to assist with a single well commitment to a multi-field scope, providing support to everything from individual studies to fully-integrated subsurface, well engineering and execution workscopes.

We recognise that each client’s well stock is diverse and our approach is tailored to the unique requirements of each client and each well.
