Understanding oilfield equipment can be difficult, especially for those who haven’t operated any (or even seen it). Explaining how these tools work is vital for gaining an edge in the depositional and trial phases of a lawsuit. Since 1992, Signa engineers have designed the layouts for leading-edge technology, and operated equipment on location, around the globe. This experience allows our experts to describe equipment failures to stakeholders when something goes wrong. We spell out the details of wellsite incidents (such as blowouts, well control incidents, explosions, or fires) in a concise, easy-to-understand report. We utilize elementary graphics to tell the entire story. If you need to explain the cause of a loss of well, we can show how it happened. If you need equipment failure analysis or damage determination, we can help. Our experience with field operations also allows us to opine on roles and responsibilities of all wellsite personnel. Our expert witnesses also provide testimony for their opinions in deposition and trial.
