In the streamline of this operational activity the Petroviser offers both - Well Construction Management and Standard Supervision. In contrast to the Standard Supervision the Well Construction Management includes all supervisory functions, as well as direct management of drilling and construction processes concerning technology, multiple contractor coordination, quality control and assessment of services performed. The Well Construction Management anticipates a wider capability and responsibility for decision making, thus the supervising company's accountability is extended to the non productive rig downtime and drilling materials consumption.

The Petroviser currently provides supervising services to Rosnteft JSC, Gazprom JSC, Naryanmarneftegaz Ltd, Sever-Karasevsky NGP, and others. An extension contract had been signed with Naryanmarneftegaz to provide the Well Construction Management service.

Along with the supervisory functions the company is able to conduct technical pre-qualification of drilling contractors and organize tendering of contractors' offers.
