Closing the Window

This is the final stage of a well's lifetime. The objective is to seal the well for eternity. Ross Offshore can perform full-scale P&A operations for subsea and platform wells, from project planning and execution to the final documentation.

Onshore / Unconventional Drilling

Ross Offshore has extensive experience from all aspects of "non-standard" drilling, completion and stimulation.

Breaking New Ground

Unconventional oil and gas is defined as "non-standard" drilling, completion and stimulation. Shale oil and gas is one type of unconventional resource that has made a global impact following the shale revolution in the USA.

Experienced Team

Ross Unconventional has wide-ranging experience from all aspects of shale O&G exploration and drilling in the USA. Our experience includes historically unconventional resources: tight chalk, carbonates and tight sands.

The integration of Copenhagen-based Ross Engineering has given us a highly competent team. Their experience with geothermal drilling in Denmark and shale gas/oil operations in the US enables us to deliver advisory services and full-scale Well Management for onshore operations.

Our team works on projects throughout Europe.

Geothermal Drilling

Ross Unconventional is a geothermal expert, committed to the growth of the sustainable energy industry.

The Heat Is On

Ross Offshore offers complete solutions for development and operation of geothermal facilities. Our services include screening and determination of resource potential, evaluation of socio-economic factors of each project, well engineering & project management, drilling management, production supervision and management.

Green Energy

Geothermal energy comes from the energy streaming from the mantle of earth. Geothermal water is a renewable energy source for production of electricity and heat. As opposed to most other sources of green energy, the potential for geothermal water can be tapped into throughout the year without interruption.

Simple, Stable and Sustainable

With a simple two-well (production and injection) design, the energy can be extracted through an exchange to produce electricity and/or heat. Geothermal energy is a stable source of energy without fluctuations, and the production can go on for years without alterations.

Dynamic Production

Geothermal energy is especially suitable to be combined with other renewables to create a scalable, multifaceted energy system. Using geothermal energy as a base load and solar-, wind- and hydro-power to provide peak load power, the system can provide electricity, heating and cooling.
