|PROJECT TYPE||Extended well test||TIME-FRAME||2009|
|CUSTOMER||Senior independent producer||DURATION||Four months|
Customer's third-party processing provider would not accept the high water volume expected to be initially produced from the producer's recently completed, tight gas/condensate well as the slickwater used in hydraulic fracturing flowed back. Customer calculated that continuing to engage well testers on-site for extended period of water recovery would be costly.
Roska supplied, installed and operated a code-compliant, SCADA-equipped temporary production facility which included a separator, ASME piping, and water storage tank with secondary containment. This approach enabled a smooth transition from 24-hour on-site operators to automated (unstaffed) operation with daily checks as the well's flow stabilized. After approximately 100 days, the daily water volume fell to a level acceptable to the third-party processor.
