MERLIN ERD Ltd.
Merlin ERD has become world leader in the design and delivery of horizontal, extended reach and complex high angle wells.
Clients leverage our knowledge and techniques to make challenging wells simple, marginal projects economical and problematic operations trouble-free. Success comes from Merlin’s back-to-basics systems approach that integrates engineering fundamentals with aviation industry risk management techniques. The results speak for themselves with lower drilling costs, fewer problems, more production sooner and an up-skilled workforce with ever-increasing confidence, desire and ability to design and deliver challenging wells.
Working on demanding ERD projects from Sakhalin to Australasia, the Middle East, West Africa, the North Sea and the Americas, we provide enviable access to an experience and knowledge base that others find impossible to replicate or retain. We’ve completed over 190 projects including major multi-well ERD projects in 34 countries – over 90% of our business comes from repeat or client recommendation.
Whether we’re completing extended reach drilling (ERD) feasibility studies, solving wellbore instability problems or hole cleaning challenges, providing expert engineering input to client peer reviews, identifying problem root cause events or avoiding costly rig upgrades with clever engineering, our success is gained through that of our clients. Our training courses provide expert insight into critical success factors and are taught by our accomplished engineers.
As key authors of the recent IADC Manual update, winners of the UK’s coveted Queen’s Award for Enterprise and the SPE (Society of Petroleum Engineers) title of Best Small Company. It is no surprise that Merlin are the go-to experts for training, engineering and operations support for important horizontal, ERD and high angle drilling projects.
