PERTH, Western AustraliaPeak Well Systems has commissioned new ISO test facilities. one in Perth, Western Australia, and one in Aberdeen, Scotland, as part of its R&D.

The new facilities provide a controlled environment for downhole plug testing under extreme conditions for prolonged periods. Both sites have refrigeration capabilities for rapid temperature cycling to simulate hostile of thermal conditions.

Inaugural tests were performed in Perth last month and witnessed by third-party certifying authority, Det Norske Veritas. Among the first products being tested are Peak’s V3-rated SIMPLUS products – plug systems certified to withstand high-pressure fluid and temperature cycling conditions.

Peak’s Test Facility in Aberdeen will be fully operational in January 2015 and will test future product lines. The company acquired an exclusive license for V0-rated MetaPlex sealing technology earlier this year, and testing of its upcoming V0-rated product range includes high-pressure and temperature cycling conditions in gaseous environments.
