TEMPLATED AND MODULARIZED WELL PAD DESIGN
WELL PAD OPTIMIZATION
Obsidian Engineering has the ability to develop a templated and modularized well pad design that meets overall design objectives, REDUCES COST, and expedites schedule.
WHAT IS A TEMPLATE/ MODULAR DESIGN?
It is a set standard design that is re-used for similar projects to avoid a full redesign and leverage repeatable execution elements.
It is an approach that subdivides the well pad into smaller parts to simplify the installation and construction as well as leverage lower cost materials and services.
A templated design approach combined with strategic modularization can be applied to multi-well pad program to maximize efficiencies related to:
separator packages, metering packages, power generation, piping layout, structural supports, pile layout, electrical packages, controls/ automation
Obsidian Engineering will leverage our extensive well pad design experience to work with clients to efficiently obtain an initial design basis. From there, Obsidian Engineering applies its successful templating and modularization strategies to create a flexible standard well pad design custom to each client. Successive designs executed using Obsidian’s continuous improvement approach provide opportunity for efficient incorporation of lessons learned improving the design elements. Specific design elements include:
Measurement Strategy, Sand Management, Automation, Utility System
• Minimizes rework by utilizing pre-approved standard design
• Reduces number of drawings required
• Lowers engineering cost and shortens engineering phase
PROCUREMENT AND CONSTRUCTION
The template and modular design simplifies the vendor RFQ, evaluation and selection process by leveraging a standardized design and program level approach.
• Bulk purchase discount (~5%)
• Shortens vendor quotation duration
• Confidence to sole source with past quotations as reference
• Ability to stock prefabricated modules for rapid deployment
CONSTRUCTION: The modular design improves the overall constructability by strategically maximizing prefabrication and simplifying the on-site modular connections. In addition, Obsidian Engineering’s extensive SIMOPs experience allows for collaboration with owner stakeholders to identify pre-work opportunities.
• Cost reduction; 90% construction prefabricated avoiding site indirect
• Simplified prefabrication through replicating spool pieces
• Simplified on-site construction/ assembly
• Maximize on-site bolt-ups [piping and structural support]
• Less hot work permits; personnel risk reduction
• Shortens construction schedule [cycle time]
