|Saudi Aramco/South Ghawar Producing Department has exerted substantial efforts to achieve significant reduction in turnaround time for re-manifolding of the oil and water wells. After completion of workover activities, the wells are connected to the oil manifold through the oil flowlines and after final inspection, the wells are put into production. The turnaround time for re-manifolding of the wells is critical in terms of the locked potential of the wells and oil producing capacity. Re-manifolding involves many activities and resources which need to be planned, aligned, and implemented in the shortest possible time, ensuring safe execution. This presentation summarizes the new maintenance methodology, which resulted in a significant reduction of turnaround days against the set KPI. Saudi Aramco/South Ghawar Producing Department believes that sharing such experiences will be beneficial to all organizations.
