Offshore staff

ABU DHABI, UAE -- AlMansoori Specialized Engineering has deployed the first of two production testing and stimulation vessels offshore the Arabian Peninsula.

All test equipment onboard the M/V Al Nisr has been designed for production testing of oil and gas wells with high levels of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and carbon dioxide (CO2).

The vessel can handle throughput of up to 15,000 b/d using oil re-injection pumps, and has a gas production/testing capability of up to 70 MMcf/d.

It can be applied to test single or multi-well developments and for full-scale production tests at remote offshore locations.

Other equipment items include high-pressure pumping equipment and associated facilities capable of handling chemical pumping and squeezing; acid mixing and pumping for well stimulation; well kill operations; pressure testing; nitrogen lifting and well unloading; and pigging of pipelines.

The pumping and stimulation system has been configured to the latest international standards for automated mixing and pumping operations for a wide range of fluid volumes to efficiently enable various operational requirements, AlMansoori adds.
