Expro develops well flow management unit for Alaska

Thursday, December 20, 2012

Oilfield services company Expro has launched a new mobile well test unit specifically designed for use in the Arctic, on onshore wells.

The units are fully portable "production facilities", which can process and measure well effluent (fluid flowing out of the well), and remove water and solids before the oil is flowed to a production facility.

Until now, all of this equipment needed to be transported to the well site on several trucks, and required lengthy set-up time. Now it can all fit on one truck.

The units have their own onboard power supply, air for instrumentation, hydrogen sulphide monitors and alarms.

It was unveiled at a launch event in Anchorage.

'I have been looking forward to the arrival of the mobile well test units as I'm extremely interested in utilizing the unit for an upcoming project,' said Tim Crumrine, senior staff completions engineer for Pioneer Alaska.

'There has been an increase in onshore activity in Alaska, with both established and new operators moving into the area to drill new wells, and rework existing fields,' said Chuck Firey, Expro's Alaska Operations Manager.
