Mitchell Services was a pioneer in the provision of exploration and production drilling services to Australia’s relatively new coal seam gas (CSG, also known as coal bed methane) industry. We specialise in complete well management to ensure high levels of gas production.
The skills and expertise gained by Mitchell in Australia are in strong demand internationally. We have worked with overseas clients to develop CSG projects in countries including but not limited to India, China, Russia, America, Botswana and Mozambique.
In Australia, Mitchell is now at the forefront of the shale gas revolution, offering exploration and production drilling services. We have developed an API certified oilfield wireline coring system that has slashed exploration costs for shale gas explorers.
Working with our alliance partners, Mitchell can also manage well drawdown and production management as per specific client requirements.
Our services include:
- Conventional vertical wells
- Deviated directional wells
- Directional steering services
- Drilling engineering
- Horizontal surface-to-inseam (SIS) wells using proprietary technologies
- Production management
- Production program engineering
- Well drawdown.
Mitchell recognises the importance of fit-for-purpose equipment, experienced personnel and a value-added delivery focus in ensuring we meet the economic needs of the CSG and emerging shale gas energy industries.
