A strong discipline in Field Development provides well owners and operators the ability to make informed decisions across the lifecycle of their system infrastructure. This strategic approach helps to maintain maximum production and profit even in the face of market fluctuation and demand, reservoir lifecycle changes, and the implementation of new technologies.
Ultimately, approaching asset development in this way supports sustainable field production through:
Our field development deliverables include critical operations designs such as:
Halker’s work in midstream oil & gas is focused on addressing the economic challenges that owners and operators are facing.
Value-added engineering can help cut costs and raise revenues in innovative ways, by leveraging proven approaches to midstream engineering such as retrofitting existing facilities, better planning new installations and using data to ensure economic site operation.
Halker’s midstream expertise can deliver:
As the American oil and gas industry moves away from single-well, vertical drilling techniques and embraces the opportunities available via directional drilling and multi-well sites, many energy firms are facing new challenges when it comes to processing the increased production loads that come with these expanded systems.
Halker’s engineered Processing systems can deliver a range of benefits, including:
With the increased complexity in the upstream portions of the supply chain, the operational build-out and management of oil and gas fields have become strategic opportunities for individual energy companies, as efficiency, speed and agility have emerged as potential advantages in the marketplace. That’s where Halker comes in.
Halker offers expertise in sweet and sour gas treating to help clients tackle the increasingly complex challenges of unconventional production. Treating experience is available to meet a range of product requirements, including for pipeline or NGL recovery, and includes the following:
Halker can assist in technology selection and optimization for both for new and existing facilities, while keeping capital and operating costs, maintenance and operability in mind. Our experience extends into minimization of greenhouse gas emissions, including strategies for CO2 capture.
Downstream Process Engineering
Once petroleum products have been extracted up-stream, and conveyed as necessary to where they are best used for processing, the Oil and Gas enters the “Downstream” disciplines to include facilities such as oil refineries, natural gas distribution companies, petrochemical plants, gas stations, and the like. These different organizations refine hydrocarbons into the products we know and use such as fuels, asphalt, fertilizers, plastics, rubber and more.
Halker’s work in downstream facilities focuses on optimizing existing facilities and processes. Due to the PSM classification of these facilities and increased emissions regulations, extra attention is required to ensure safety and environmental constraints are met. Halker can support refining and petrochemical facilities in Process, Instrumentation, Electrical, and Automation disciplines.
Our process optimization experience includes:
Instrumentation and Controls:
In addition to process optimization, Halker can provide instrumentation packages and assist in process automation efforts. Safety instrumentation and control systems are common in Downstream facilities, and Halker can help develop related documentation (cause and effect diagrams, control narratives, etc.). Halker has designed and commissioned SIS control systems in DCS and PLC applications.
Facilities specific experience includes:
Complex multi-well pad deployments by oil and gas energy companies demand pre-planning, integrated design and comprehensive engineering of the entire site. Halker designs and engineers entire sites so that all elements work together as expected, leveraging automation technologies to increase efficiency, build simpler sites, and reduce the cost of operation. These systems are designed in from day one to ensure production optimization, safety, and environmental responsibility.
Halker’s integrated Automation services include:
Our Automation solutions are entirely turnkey, coming complete with:
Once installed, Halker helps ensure that Operators, Pumpers, and Managers are all trained on operating and maintaining automation systems and are given access to the wealth of remote information available from company assets within the network.
Halker’s Site Optimization expertise is focused on developing oil and gas systems that are as effective and efficient as possible, helping well owners and operators eliminate waste and redundancies from their existing field assets to safely maximize field production and profit.
We map, model, and test oil and gas systems virtually, combining these simulations with our real-world experience to identify opportunities for engineered performance improvement in operations and production.
This is a four-step process that includes:
Ultimately, our goals are to help our clients work faster, increase production, and better meet their strategic business objectives.
Halker’s facility engineering and design process leverages an innovative but proven modular approach to scalable, centralized and consolidated surface processing solutions that help operators capitalize on multiple well strategies.
By going modular, these facilities provide well owners and operators with a better approach to:
Ultimately, Halker’s modular designs and equipment help owners and operators leverage new drilling technologies and lean system design safely and with the correct industry standards and compliance built-in.
