Experienced people

Our project teams thrive on dealing with complex challenges. They have pioneered innovative solutions and safely delivered wells across the globe – ranging from onshore projects through to complex ultra-deepwater wells.

With an average of 20 years’ industry experience across our wells team, we have the personnel, experience, and certified management systems to consistently deliver high levels of safety and operational performance.

Meet The Team

Unique Deepwater Expertise

When we launched our deepwater project management service, we became the industry’s first ever drilling consultancy to specialise in deepwater and ultra-deepwater.

Our team’s experience in this area is unrivalled, having safely managed some of the world’s first drilling campaigns in new and remote deepwater basins.

We now offer increased breadth of services and capability, but managing the risks and realities of increasingly complex wells is still where we thrive.

Integrated Well Management

Whatever the project, we effectively design the well from the bottom up, using an integrated multi-discipline approach.

Securing input from across all engineering disciplines ensures that the detailed design meets your well life cycle requirements from well performance, data acquisition, intervention and well integrity through to final abandonment.

Partnering with you, we co-develop and manage all aspects of your drilling campaign including HSEQ management, project planning, well design, rig & technology selection, subsea engineering, contract & procurement services, logistics, cost management, and operations management.

Our people seamlessly integrate with your operations – enabling effective collaboration and transfer of experience, engineering standards and best practice.

Certified Systems

Backed by our rigorous safety processes and LRQA-certified quality, environmental, health & safety management systems, all projects are consistently planned and executed to the required standard, resulting in a detailed, well-structured and repeatable well design.

Extended Service Range

No longer just a well management consultancy, we now offer a one-stop solution including global subsurface, well integrity management, and decommissioning capability. Our chosen partners are dynamic, industry-leading organisations offering proven solutions and a reputation for safely delivering results 

Our integrated approach ensures we can seamlessly support your well management needs - whenever, wherever.

Subsurface Solutions

Quad Operations provides a full range of geoscience services including operational pre-planning, on-site drilling monitoring, real-time pore pressure management, well bore stability management and geosteering.

Integrated Well Expertise

A strategic alliance with Norway-based well management group Well Expertise, resulting in enhanced technical expertise, collaboration and operational capacity for clients in the UK, Norway and internationally.

Decommissioning Solutions

Boskalis provides marine services for a wide range of decommissioning scenarios. The partnership enables a fully integrated decommissioning solution for topside, jackets, subsea and subsea pipeline removal.

world first

Challenged with a damaged wellhead on a UDW exploration well in the Black Sea, Exceed worked with an industry-leading wellhead manufacturer to design and produce a unique high-pressure wellhead adaptor.

The adaptor was successfully installed and the well was delivered ahead of schedule and below AFE.

world first

Exceed provided full project management for the first ever ultra-deepwater well offshore Myanmar. Challenges including limited data, a 4-month operation window, and a remote well location with a 7-day logistics supply were successfully managed.

The well was delivered safely without accidents, incidents or spills, saving $6million below AFE .


Supporting the full spectrum

With full in-house engineering, planning and operational expertise, we offer a range of scalable solutions to support all your well integrity and well maintenance needs.

We can support you with tailored solutions for your on-going well integrity management as well as execute your intervention, workover and decommissioning projects.
