Global oil and gas service company AGR has announced a new achievement, with the drilling of its 500th well, representing an average of one new drilling project started every ten days since 2000.
Spanning six continents, the company has delivered drilling projects for 106 clients in 25 countries during that time.
AGR said it has drilled wells in environments including deepwater and ultra-deepwater, HPHT, Barents Sea’s Hoop area and various sensitive environments for its clients.
The company has delivered projects that cover the entire oil field lifecycle, from exploration, through appraisal to development and production wells.
AGR CEO Åge Landro said: "Over the past 13 years we have worked continuously to develop and adapt our services to meet the needs of our clients and add value to their operations efficiently and safely.
"The real key is having the best people on our team, from office desk to oil field. I would like to thank everyone involved in our operations around the world for their commitment, skill and hard work in helping us achieve this success."
In 2013, AGR created a dedicated rig team to try to ensure that the best available rigs for its clients’ projects are secured.
The company has experience in managing rig campaigns in the major oil hubs around the world, and can facilitate rig access and secure preferential rates for parties involved.
AGR has also established a well delivery process to enable consistency of service delivery.
