Oilfield services firm AlMansoori has deployed the first of two planned production testing and stimulation ships in the Arabian Gulf.

All onboard testing equipment onboard the MV Al Nisir has been designed to conduct production testing on oil and gas wells with high H2S & CO2 levels.

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

The ship is also equipped with high pressure pumping equipment and related facilities 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 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.

Chief executive Nabil Al Alawi, 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.”
