JCC's Response to COVID-19

Clients, Friends and Colleagues,

In response to the recent classification of the COVID-19 coronavirus as a global pandemic, and Governor Abbott’s executive order, JCC has implemented a remote-working policy for our company. This policy will ensure that we can assist all clients with current and future needs while providing a safe working environment for all.

We have been in contact with state and federal regulatory agencies regarding communication and tools for continued regulatory compliance. Our staff is equipped with necessary technology and tools to provide the level of service and security that you expect from JCC.

JCC has discussed OSRP submittals, drills, and training with BSEE in order to ensure continued regulatory compliance. Plans have been put in place to conduct remote training and drills utilizing videoconferencing technology and BSEE has agreed to allow OSRP submittals to be made electronically.

All regulatory and engineering consulting services will continue as usual including all plans, permits, PE certifications, well monitoring, SEMS and others. JCC has video conference and teleconference capabilities to facilitate collaboration between our staff and our clients.

In addition, through a joint venture with DSDS and JCC, we can provide the following services through IMR (Integrity Management, & Response):

  • WCD modeling
  • Fluid gradient modeling
  • Cap and Flow modeling
  • Transient multiphase flow modeling
  • Well integrity modeling (APB in WellCat, WCST, pressure response curves for soft shut-in)
  • Well control engineering providing (bullhead kill, dynamic kill, relief well design, directional/ranging program, plume modeling)
  • 24/7 availability to a source control response center
  • Fully staffed source control IMT filling all critical source control roles
  • CROC leak detection system not requiring any changes to existing safety system
  • Intervention readiness audit followed by Infrastructure documentation including associated specialty tooling

IMR’s source control response center will be maintained in a fully functional state with no personnel allowed in the center ensuring industry has access to a COVID-19 free response center should the need arise. IMR’s response center and personnel as well as all services listed above are available to industry through a variety of different retainer packages.
