Welcome to Alder Petroleum. This domain and Website was registered back in 2001 which seems like a lifetime ago. Over the years the personnel have changed, and the ownership, but the domain and the website endure…
We’re still involved in the oil and gas industry, and offer consulting and technical advice. We’re a team of three at the moment, with 70 years of oil and gas experience between us, from 4 continents.
Our last job titles were Senior Drilling Engineer, Workover & Completions Manager and Geosteering Engineer. We’re not quite ready to add our photos and bios to the website yet, but wanted to get started on the revival of Alder Petroleum.
As a boy, I remember climbing an Alder tree at the bottom of my family garden. It must have been 40 meters tall, and 100 years old, or at least thats my memory of it. I used to practically live there in the summer months.
Alder Petroleum intends to build a legacy like that old birch tree. Enduring, resilient and beautiful for future generations.
We’re already in discussion with a software engineer who is consulting with us regarding some oilfield applications for tablets and smartphones. That story is in the early stages.
We’re getting close to an agreement with Jason at drillers.com to work to improve their MathCAD feature. We have new data and ideas based on more recent multi bore drilling techniques. For example, we’re working on a new algorithm for their bending stress in tubulars audit calculation page. It was published in 2009 and we’ve improved our data based on more efficient technology.
Ideally we would love to go through and optimise all of these processes, and create a smart application.
At the moment we’re exploring at least a dozen business models, so watch this space and don’t forget to visit as our business evolves.
