Halliburton announced the delivery of another step-change improvement in deepwater well-testing technology. The advancement provides enhanced economies to operators by enabling more efficient and reliable reservoir testing.
First, the system eliminates the need for traditionally bulky and costly sand-handling equipment and the inherent operational difficulties associated with it. Second, it streamlines rig operations by eliminating costly rig time associated with the removal of produced solids.
“In deepwater rigs where space and time are costly, the Halliburton 4 Phase Vertical Test Separator enables operators to save real estate on the rig while simultaneously avoiding non productive time associated with the use of traditional equipment,” said Abdalla Awara, vice president of Halliburton's Testing and Subsea product service line. “In deepwater environments, this can translate into significant cost savings for oil and gas operators.”
