International Services

Western Petroleum Management, a Canadian based petroleum management company, services the petroleum industry for both Canadian and international clients. WPM International was established by Western Petroleum Management and a group of seasoned oil industry veterans to focus on oil and gas opportunities outside of Canada. As oil and gas fields mature throughout the world, there is a rapid increase in the need to optimize existing fields and to locate and develop more challenging reservoirs. The petroleum industry is faced with new challenges from maximizing production from high water cut reservoirs to achieving economic production from tighter and smaller reservoirs.

WPM International is a comprehensive multidisciplinary team of petroleum industry professionals. The majority of our team members have in excess of 25 years of experience in many facets of the oil and gas industry. Most have worked together as a group or with several individuals for over 10 years in both private and public companies and have established a record of success. The team has been instrumental in finding and developing exploration properties utilizing an integrated approach with the latest geophysical acquisition and interpretation techniques in conjunction with petrophysical studies and detailed regional geological interpretations. The engineering and operations section has a proven track record in the optimization of mature fields utilizing unique combinations of state-of-the-art technologies, technical expertise, and extensive experience. Through the implementation of good operational and production practices at the field level, an even higher degree of results are achieved by the operations group.

The WPM International team is truly comprised of a group with the capabilities of "concept-to-production sales." They possess a broad background of onshore and offshore experience as well as exposure in both Canadian and international settings.
