    Vessel & ROV News // December 29, 2015

    AlMansoori Specialized Engineering, the oilfield services company based in the Middle East, has announced the deployment of the first of two planned production testing and stimulation vessels in the Arabian Gulf.

    Nabil Al Alawi, CEO of AlMansoori Specialised Engineering, said: “The new vessel, with its range of unique capabilities, will substantially reinforce our capacity to offer production testing and well stimulation services of the highest quality and an enhanced level of operational efficiency to our clients. This is part of our commitment to continue to offer our clients the highest levels of quality service and support.”

    The vessel, Al Nisr DPII, brings with it the capability to offer production testing and well stimulation. All onboard testing equipment has been designed to conduct production testing on oil and gas wells with high H2S and CO2 levels. Additionally, the vessel has been fitted with the latest safety equipment available in the industry in order to ensure safe and trouble-free operations.

    The oil production/testing capability of the vessel can accommodate up to 15,000 bbl/day with re-injection using oil re-injection pumps. The gas production/testing capability of Al Nisr can reach 70 MMSCFD (million standard cubic feet per day).

    The vessel has the ability to test single or multi-well developments and to allow full-scale production tests to be performed at remote offshore locations with the minimum of down time.

    Al Nisr is also equipped with high pressure pumping equipment and related facilities that are capable of handling various well servicing applications such as chemical pumping and squeezing; acid mixing and pumping for well stimulation; well killing operations; pressure testing; nitrogen lifting and well unloading and pigging 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 operations requirements.
