How It Works

Solomon recognizes that a consulting relationship requires an integrated multidisciplinary team effort on both sides, ours as well as our client’s. Our subject matter experts begin by sharing with the client their insights on general best practices for surface and subsurface operations. Next they conduct a customized technical presentation to identify key concerns and opportunities. Later, Solomon and the client meet to integrate findings and recommendations. Technical management and staff are included in these meetings, and input from all parties facilitates the achievement of consensus on a final plan to optimize steam injection.
