PETREVEN, TEN YEARS OF DRILLING
July 14, 2009Petreven, a company of the Trevi Group which is specialized in drilling services, has reached the 10th year of activity.
An important anniversary because it’s supported by several and important acknowledgments, not only for the wonderful performances reached, but especially for the high standards achieved in the field of environmental protection and safety. These results witness the validity of the choice made by the company which was just established at that time, that is, to exclusively use the new systems developed and produced by Drillmec (another company of the Trevi Group): automatic hydraulic rigs that are extremely innovative compared to the technologies already available on the market.
But let’s start from the beginning: it was the 16th June 1999, when, at 11.00 p.m. o’clock, the Petreven G200 rig officially begun its drilling activity on the Venezuelan ground. The work was accomplished by Petreven skilled operators on behalf of the Venezuelan company PDVSA (Petroleo de Venezuela S.A.), and precisely on the ORC 20 well, in the Orocual Field.
During these intense first 10 years of activity, mainly performed in Venezuela, Colombia, Peru and Argentina, Petreven has drilled nearly 1.111 wells, for a total amount of 4.742.813 feet of depth (equal to 1.446 km). Said numbers are even more relevant if compared with those related to the accidents on the work sites. In over six years of activity in Colombia, Petreven stands out for not having recorded any accidents, hence avoiding delays on set working times (LTA=0).
These excellent results have been achieved thanks to the professionalism and the passion of the whole Petreven staff – so highly appreciated and thanked by the Director and the whole Board of Directors – to the extent that new and interesting opportunities are envisaged in Saudi Arabia, Brazil and Nigeria.
