Warren employs the most current and innovative technologies to unlock the potential of its reservoirs. Its state of the art facility at the Wilmington Townlot Unit (WTU) has been visited by many oil company personnel and government agencies, and serves as an example of how a complex drilling and production operation can be successfully integrated into surrounding residential communities and commercial areas.
Warren owns its own fully enclosed, soundproofed drilling rig that can be easily moved from well to well on a cushion of air. This technology allows the drilling engineer to commence drilling operations just hours after finishing the last well without having to lay down pipe or dismantle any portion of the rig. The sound proofing eliminates noise and allows for around-the-clock drilling.
The actual drill site is comprised of three cellars that capture all fluids, including rainwater, that are subsequently processed, cleaned and injected into the reservoir. No fluids leave the site. Warren is abandoning all wells outside of the WTU to provide a better environment for the surrounding community. All wells within the WTU facility utilize space-saving electric submersible pumps. The wells are constantly monitored by a computerized SCADA system that maximizes run times and profitability. These technologies have set the standard in California, which other companies are trying to emulate.
Warren combines multiple technologies that enables the drilling of highly targeted wells with a minimal surface footprint. These wells are drilled in the Tar, Ranger, Upper Terminal and Ford formations.
Warren’s operations team has more than 150 years of combined experience. The team has been able to implement many technologies that are now benefitting Warren and its shareholders. Warren’s upcoming three dimensional seismic project and gas sales and transportation plans are examples of these technologies.
Warren has three main strengths concerning the wells it drills:
The application of advanced technology has allowed Warren to compete effectively and efficiently in areas where the major energy companies saw no value. This technology also allows us to fully exploit our assets in California and Wyoming, as well as take a fresh, new look at acquiring new fields in other basins.
