Vanco awards Halliburton West Africa engineering, consulting work

By the OGJ Online Staff

HOUSTON, Dec. 12 -- Vanco Energy Co., Houston, has given Halliburton Co. contracts for upstream engineering and consulting services for developments off West Africa.

Halliburton also will study development of West Africa's gas market. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Vanco plans to drill at least six deepwater exploration wells off Equatorial Guinea, Ivory Coast, Morocco, and Namibia, starting in late 2002.

Halliburton will provide a variety of engineering and consulting services, including tasks related to reservoir description and well construction planning and engineering.

Halliburton Energy Services will begin engineering related work within the next few weeks. Contract work will continue for several years, said Halliburton, as Vanco works through its deepwater portfolio.

Drilling engineering work will focus on pore pressure-fracture gradient predictions, well trajectory options, casing programs, and testing and completion philosophies. Work has begun on drilling time curves and cost estimates. Extended-reach drilling is a possibility, said the contractor.

Vanco has also begun work with Halliburton units Landmark Graphics, Granherne, and Halliburton KBR (formerly Kellogg Brown & Root) for a study of potential gas markets in West Africa.

Halliburton and Vanco will conduct a liquefied natural gas study. Landmark is providing field interpretation software tools; Granherne will also provide development software.
