Leading international oilfield services company, Expro, said Dec. 18 that it has unveiled one of three new arctic enclosed mobile well test units during a launch event in Anchorage, Alaska.
These units provide an innovative solution for well flow management and are specifically designed for harsh arctic operating conditions.
The mobile well test units are fully portable production facilities and are capable of well test and clean-up operations. The unit’s process and measure well effluent, as well as remove water and solids prior to flowing to a production facility.
Normally this equipment is transported to the well site in multiple pieces on several trucks and requires extensive rig up times. By combining all of the equipment into one mobile unit, logistical efficiency is significantly enhanced, resulting in the reduction of rig-up time and transportation costs. This also reduces the need for customer-provided well support.
Expro, which currently has an office in Anchorage as well as a full service operations base in Kenai, expects to launch a recruitment drive soon to help grow its well test operational crew, to meet demand for its services in the Alaska operating region.
“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. “In my opinion, Expro is the only choice for Pioneer Alaska well testing.”
