Focus on Efficiency Positions Bakken for Oil Price Recovery

Lean manufacturing practices have allowed Hess to drive down drilling and completion costs, even during the low oil price environment of the past two years.

Hess Uses Lean to Resolve Denmark Challenges

Lean Helps Hess Denmark Resolve Well Challenges at South Arne

The Hess Denmark team transferred a new completions technology, first developed for Hess wells onshore, for offshore use. By relying on an eight-step problem-solving process, a critical element of Lean, Hess Denmark was able to develop and implement solutions with full alignment across the team.

  • Multi Well Pads Increase Drilling Efficiency

    Hess' Multi-Well Pads Add Value in the Bakken

    Multi-well pads are increasing drilling efficiency – and Hess is leading the way. Hess has the Bakken’s largest multi-well pad, with 18 wells on a single location. Inforum’s Amy Dalrymple visited Hess’ operations to get an inside look at how multi-well pads are adding value and reducing the amount of land used for drilling.

  • World Oil Patent Pending Sucker Rod

    New Sucker Rod Coupling Could Save Millions

    World Oil covers a new patent-pending sucker rod coupling that could save Hess and other operators millions of dollars per year. The invention was developed by Hess and Materion and is expected to reduce annual per well workover costs by $75,000-$100,000.
  • Computed Tomography Extends Hess Subsea Tieback

    CT Scanning Extends Life of Hess Subsea Tieback

    Offshore Magazine writes how Hess’ use of a computed tomography (CT) scanner during a subsea flowline inspection campaign allowed the company to verify the integrity of locations that could potentially develop high levels of corrosion without interrupting production. Ultimately, this lowered finding, development, and acquisition costs and protected its continued license to operate.
