Well Test

The oil and gas industry faces tougher legislation to reduce emissions. One of the key areas of focus is the practice of flaring crude oil. In many parts of the world, governments impose fines on companies that continue to flare at high levels and encourage operators to use other methods to this practice.

A key area of focus is the practice of flaring crude oil

Hughes pumps have supplied equipment for use in oilfields operated by Karachaganak Petroleum Operating BV (KPO) in Kazakhstan as part of a solution to reduce flaring. KPO required data from production tests performed where information gathered was crucial to future development and field management. The solution was to send hydrocarbon fluids direct to the process facility without flaring, reducing impact on the environment.

Twin HPS5000 pumps were used to overcome well pressure at 137bar to transfer hydrocarbons with a high H2S content.
