Clean drilling equipment instantly

Sioux Corporation introduces its Drill Pipe Enviro-Cleaner (DPEC). This system uses steam to clean drill pipe, cables, and downhole tools instantly and effectively. Users will avoid costly fines because the mud and oil removed from the drill pipe falls back into the well, preventing contamination of the soil. The DPEC will save time, labour and expense to transport pipe to other locations for cleaning; the drill pipe can be inspected on site because all contaminants will have been removed.


The DPEC also offers safety benefits by eliminating handling pipe that is covered in mud and oil reducing potential lost time injuries.
Sioux’s patent-pending drill pipe cleaning process consists of a steam cleaner and a steam collar with multiple nozzles that mounts on the wellhead. The DPEC system provides hot pressurized water to the collar, which is mounted in-line between the blow-out preventer and the rotary table. The unit produces 320 degrees F (160 degrees C) pressurized water at 250 PSI (17.2 BAR) prior to exiting the collar nozzles.


At the collar nozzles, the water flashes to steam for exceptional cleaning power. As the drill pipe is removed from the well, it passes through the collar, where it is instantly cleaned.


Depending on location of the collar, all contaminants either fall back into the well or are recovered by the flow line and returned to the mud tank.

Jereh Apollo 4500 Turbine Frac Pumper Finishes Successful Field Operation in China

Jereh Apollo 4500 Turbine Frac Pumper Finishes Successful Field Operation in China.
Jereh Apollo 4500 Turbine Frac Pumper Finishes Successful Field Operation in China.

Jereh Group has announced that its Apollo 4500 Turbine Frac Pumper, which holds the world's largest output power up to 4500hhp, successfully finished its first operation for two wells from Feb. 5th to 6th, 2015 in North China. Zhang Rikui, senior engineer of Jereh technology center said, "It not only marks the reliability of Jereh's advanced oilfield equipment, but also leads the industry forward for more commercial development".

Jereh self-developed Apollo 4500 Turbine Frac Pumper can reach the total output power up to 4500hhp, which means only 8 sets can complete the work by 18 sets of 2000hhp frac pumper for large fracturing operation. Featured by its smaller footprint of 34 ft in length and lighter turbine of only 0.7 tons, Apollo enjoys more flexibility in transportation and is attractive for shale wells in remote area and rugged terrain. Moreover, it is applicable for multi-fuels including diesel, wellhead gas, LNG and bio-oil with engine of 30 years' service life to deliver best economic output for operators.

Chem Rock’s OmegaStim Completes 4,000th Fracking Stage

Chem Rock, has announced that its premier fluid system, OmegaStim, has successfully completed its 4,000th stage. Designed as a direct replacement for traditional cross linked and hybrid fluid systems, OmegaStim is the industry’s first field proven, viscosity enhanced, and fully breakable slick water fluid system.

According to oilfield service company Baker Hughes, the United States has seen nine consecutive weeks of falling rig counts, with the count now at its lowest level since April 2010. As the price of crude oil continues to plunge and the industry is threatened with cutbacks, oil and gas operators are seeking solutions to cut costs without cutting production. OmegaStim, with the performance characteristics of a cross linked fluid and the cleanliness and economic advantages of a slick water system, is increasingly being turned to as a low cost, high return solution.

Weatherford Announces New FracAdvisor Services Offering

Weatherford International plc has introduced its new FracAdvisor service offering for the oil and gas industry. FracAdvisor provides near real-time guidance to operators for optimized completion designs, reduced operational risks, and increased efficiency of hydraulic fracturing operations.

Well production variances and operational time constraints demand an integrated solution based on the reservoir’s unique characteristics. Through FracAdvisor, Weatherford provides guidance to operators on how to optimally complete a well by accurately incorporating various reservoir and completion attributes, such as the effect of anisotropy in organic shale reservoirs. FracAdvisor incorporates proprietary algorithms that weight specific attributes according to the specific play, well, or lateral.

Coriolis Mass Flow Meters Take Center Stage for Bulk Measurement in Oil and Gas Industry

Accurate measurement of liquids is important for all oil and gas industry production or consumption sites. This is especially true for bulk transfer devices where large volumes of products are being moved and must be monitored, including crude oil depots, gasoline and jet fuel tank farms, refineries, and even cruise line terminals.

In the past, mass transfer was measured in batches with weigh scales or load cells. However installation, calibration, and maintenance of a scale or load cell are costly, difficult to do, time consuming, and don’t work for continuous processes. For these processes, such methods as orifice plates and magnetic flow tubes can measure volumetric flow, but additional instruments are needed to measure temperature and pressure to compensate for fluid density changes. Introducing additional instruments also introduces errors, which can result in an overall measurement error rate as high as three percent.

DNV GL Tackles Corrosion and Integrity of Ageing Wells with New JIP

Shamik Chowdhury, Project Manager at DNV GL
Shamik Chowdhury, Project Manager at DNV GL

The global oil and gas industry is now facing the reality that many of its on and offshore wells are being used beyond the original lifespan. This presents significant uncertainty around the integrity, safety and productivity of the remaining service life. DNV GL has established a Joint Industry Project (JIP) to develop guidelines for a decision support framework for corrosion assessment and integrity management of ageing wells.

Many wells are reaching an age of upwards of 30 or 40 years, and operators are facing a growing challenge to predict output, mitigate against risk and ultimately decide whether to retire or rejuvenate ageing wells. Life extension of ageing wells is moving up the agenda for oil and gas operators in many regions. Factors driving this include, high oil prices, technology advances and regulatory requirements.

Twin Disc Transmission Excels In Well Stimulation

Twin Disc TA90-7601 power shift transmission
Twin Disc TA90-7601 power shift transmission

Twin Disc has announced the release of its TA90-7601 power shift transmission. This industry-leading unit outclasses the competition for use in triplex and quintuplex pressure piston gas and oil well stimulation. Due to its strong, yet simple counter shaft design, the unit has an expected L10 life of 10,000 hours to match the overhaul schedule of the engine that powers it.

The coaxial, nine-speed TA90-7601 has been designed to be power shifted under all loaded or unloaded conditions without any throttle dipping within range-to-range shifts. The smallest and most evenly-spaced gear ratio steps in the industry ensure that well pressure is maintained without any drop during gear shifts. A flexible coupling allows it to be installed on an engine's dry flywheel housing, reducing torsional excitations by the engine and pump. The transmission has a maximum gross input power rating up to 1,939 kW (2,600 hp) at 1,900 rpm.

TORRENT Frac-pack Solution Creates, Preserves High-conductivity Fractures

Baker Hughes has announced the commercial release of its TORRENT frac-pack solution, which helps operators improve ultimate recovery by creating and maintaining large, high-conductivity fractures to maximize reservoir contact and increase drainage. Each TORRENT solution is designed with the customer and executed according to the potential of the respective reservoir, and takes advantage of Baker Hughes’ expertise and technology portfolio in sand control and pressure pumping. The result is more reliable and effective delivery of an optimal treatment program for the reservoir—regardless of required proppant volumes or pump rates.

Modeling the ideal stimulation program and engineering the fluid design to match reservoir characteristics is the initial part of the process. The stimulation program is then executed using the versatile SC-XP frac-pack platform and an advanced stimulation vessel. SpectraStar fracturing fluid, which features proprietary organoborate crosslinker and breaker technology, offers superior shear recovery at extreme pump rates, and is used for effective proppant transport, breaking cleanly and completely for maximum regain conductivity.
