What We Do

The importance of drilling fluids engineering in contributing to the success of a drilling operation cannot be overestimated. However, many independent operators do not have access to specialist, impartial expertise covering the full scope of the service lines, which means that opportunities for efficiency, cost effectiveness, and performance enhancement are often not realised. AK Well Services Limited, which was formed to take over the business of the long established and respected consulting group, MGA Consultancy Services, provides a service that removes the need for full time in-house engineering support, and ensures cost effective solutions, application of appropriate technology, and quality assurance. Impartial advice is tailored to the client’s requirements, ranging from ad hoc involvement to resolve technical problems, to management of whole projects from planning to execution and review. Specific areas of technical expertise include deepwater drilling, ERD wells, HPHT, and complex completions.

Fluids Management Services

Our drilling and completing fluids management services form the core of our business.

We offer technical support for operators, generally provided on an ad-hoc basis to suit the client’s requirements. This approach provides operators with a viable alternative to employing full time staff in-house to manage their drilling fluids, cementing, and associated environmental work. Furthermore, it allows the operator to gain access to the combined resources of our team, which cover a number of areas of expertise. Our core capabilities include tendering and procurement, equipment sourcing and specification, well planning, contract management, and operations coordination.

Specific services include:
