Our solutions are delivered on a turnkey or collaborative basis for operators requiring assistance from well construction to well maintenance. We also provide assistance in resource development optimization and management.

This type of work is typically conducted based on a menu of lump sums for the specific stages of well planning e.g. preliminary design then detailed design; plus monthly fees for the management of the project and daily fees for conducting operations. Third party contracts are billed to the client on an ‘at cost plus’ basis.

  • The project drilling personnel present themselves to third parties as representatives of LIBERA
  • Third party contracts are held by LIBERA
  • Work and operations are entirely conducted from LIBERA hubs under the LIBERA Well Delivery Process.

LIBERA has extensive international experience in managing well construction operations, from stand-alone exploration wells through to multi-well development campaigns. 


LIBERA operates to a codified Well Delivery Process (WDP), which describes the process of constructing a well through initial client contact, well design and operations to performance review. The process is accredited to ISO 9001 and is supported by key manuals and procedures, which ensure repeatable project execution and constant improvement.
