Engineering Services

RPM Consulting, Inc. provides engineering services to operators who would like the flexibility and expertise consultants can provide.  From project management to creating drilling and completion procedures, RPM provides engineering at any level for operators.  RPM’s engineers work closely and communicate with operators to ensure that their needs, goals and preferences are being met.

Our engineering services include:

  • Project Management
  • Drilling/Completion programs and procedures, including cost estimation
  • Workovers and Production monitoring
  • Permitting and other regulatory functions
  • Directional planning

Drilling

RPM Consulting, Inc. has provided drilling engineering support to many companies that needed additional expertise to drill horizontal wells.  With RPM’S experience drilling horizontal wells, RPM was able to save these operators significant capital.

Drilling engineers review offset well data and current drilling practices to optimize your drilling projects.  In the initial planning stages, drilling engineers provide permits and AFE estimates.  Drilling engineers provide casing, cement, mud and directional plans for permitting and the drilling prognosis. RPM’s drilling engineers also assist in rig selection and help negotiate the drilling contracts.  To minimize well costs, our emphasis is on drilling the most cost efficient well possible by reducing the number of drilling days.

As the well is drilled, the RPM drilling engineers take daily calls from the drilling rigs and provide input as to well optimization – bit selection, hydraulics and drilling parameters.  RPM engineers also work closely with on-site consultants to provide recommendations in trouble situations such as stuck pipe, sidetracks, lost circulation and fishing operations.

Completion

RPM has been involved with the progression of horizontal, multi-stage completions that have helped turn the Bakken into a world class oil play.  RPM has expertise with a wide range of completion technologies including microseismic, fracture stimulation design, job execution and flow back analysis.  The completion engineering and field expertise gained over the past five years by our team has allowed us to help minimize costly problems with the increasingly complex multistage horizontal completion.

RPM’s frac engineers have a vast amount of experience in fracture stimulation, flow back design and implementation.  Our consultants’ experience includes high rate and high pressure fracs, slick water, linear and cross linked gel fracs, CO2, acid and diesel fracs.  RPM provides both design and field operations engineering support.  With the ever increasing demand for frac crews, clients benefit from the close relationships RPM has developed with suppliers and service companies.

Workover Operations

RPM also brings expertise with downhole completion and workover operations to our clients.  This includes knowledge and experience with coiled tubing, snubbing and wireline services. Our engineers generate procedures, help with equipment and service selection and provide operations supervision on location.
