The purpose of well testing on development wells is to clean-up and commission the well, prior to its connection to the permanent production facility.
The permanent completion is used with a temporary subsea/surface safety tree and production system. Included in the development well testing segment are DST/TCP operations, associated with completions activity such as a ‘shoot and pull’ run prior to well clean-up, fluid separation, solids management and disposal operations. Current methods for disposal in a well test or clean-up involve burners, water remediation, storage of produced fluids to a tank.
In areas where strict regulations exist regarding the disposal of liquids by burning, well tests are performed without burning oil. Gas can be flared, and produced fluids stored in a barge or in workboat tanks for transport back to a land-based disposal facility.
Our clean-up packages include:
