Emergency response specialists Wild Well Control, a Superior Energy Services company, has announced that Prospect Flow Solutions has joined Wild Well to serve as its new Advanced Engineering group.
Prospect is a proven industry provider of state-of-the-art engineering solutions and complements Wild Well’s comprehensive well control services.
“We’re proud to integrate Prospect’s expertise into Wild Well so that we may offer our clients advanced engineering services,” says Wild Well Control Executive Vice President Bill Mahler.
Large-scale field testing of subsea gas release
Since Prospect’s founding in 1999, Wild Well and its parent company have partnered with Prospect on a number of projects to deliver innovative answers to some of the industry’s most pressing issues.
Most recently, the two companies have been participating in phase one of a joint industry project to develop large-scaled field testing of subsea gas releases to validate the computer prediction models that ensure safe placement of a capping stack during critical offshore operations. Now as an integrated force, Wild Well and its Advanced Engineering group enter phase two of the project for more comprehensive testing.
Meeting the demands of an international market
Wild Well Advanced Engineering Vice President Alistair Gill, former vice president of Prospect, expects an even greater presence in the international market as a result of the integration with Wild Well.
“By providing Southeast Asia and Middle East operators with our services, Wild Well has the potential for tremendous growth for its existing offices in Aberdeen and abroad,” said Gill.
He continued by stating that Wild Well’s involvement in groundbreaking research related to the shale gas market, such as cement and casing integrity, offers Advanced Engineering the opportunity to continually produce pioneering follow-ups to past energy project successes.
Gill added, “Now as a group within the company, Advanced Engineering is better placed to support Wild Well’s core services with its expertise and innovative engineering solutions.”
