THE CSI PROCESS
The Completion Specialists leadership team has over 140 years of industry experience in planning and executing major capital projects around the globe. During our industry’s rich history, a technology revolution has transformed the way we go about conducting our operations. In order to meet today’s challenges, CSI developed a process which better serves our clients in using new technology to save time, money and improve well performance.
The CSI Process not only enables us to develop a plan which incorporates new technology but also to utilize best practices we painstakingly learned in new innovative well operational procedures. We have found that companies that omit a process step are prone to have more non-productive time occur during the operation. Your company can count on CSI to implement the seven-stage process into your project no matter how large or small. This is our commitment to you for relying on our expertise to do it the right way the first time.
