An emerging sweet spot for the oil and gas industry, Africa is accelerating exploration and production developments in both its onshore and offshore sectors. National oil corporations are partnering with industry heavyweights from around the globe to rebuild infrastructure in the world's second largest continent. Vast oil and gas reserves are harnessed within Africa's respective countries, as well as the surrounding waters of the Mediterranean Sea to the north, the Suez Canal and Red Sea to the northeast, the Indian Ocean to the southeast and the Atlantic Sea to the west.
Well servicing and testing refers to activities done to already existing wells. Well interventions, well integrity activities, or general well work are usually classified under well servicing. Well testing is a planned acquisition of data from the reservoir of a well. The data gathered is then used to determine a well’s capacity for producing oil or gas.
