Surface Well Testing
From exploration wells to appraisal wells, surface well testing is the only proven way to establish and validate a reservoir’s potential. Accurate well data, and the information needed for proper reservoir management and evaluation of its potential for further development, is critical.
Safety is our highest priority; TETRA has the necessary systems to protect your personnel, assets, the well and the related data, and the environment. Whether your operations are centered on conventional oil and gas production or on unconventional wells, we have the production testing equipment you need to quickly and efficiently bring your wells online.
TETRA maintains one of the largest fleets of well testing equipment globally. Our equipment can control a well’s flow, and separate, measure, and dispose of the produced effluents.
TETRA well test and flowback packages are fully engineered and built to industry and customer preferred standards, including:
- API 6 A for well head equipment
- API 12 K for production heating equipment
- API 14 C safety systems
- API 14 E for offshore installations
- API 17 D & E for subsea equipment
- ASME B 31.3 for process piping
- ASME Section VIII Div. 1, 2, & 3 for pressure-containing vessels
- Zero-discharge burner and incineration systems for offshore installations
We are dedicated to continuously improve the quality and performance of our equipment. For example we are ISO 9001:2015 certified. Our engineers are active in industry organizations, and we sit on key API boards that guide the industry’s quality standards.
We have special configurations designed for challenging conditions and environments, including land, offshore, ultra-cold climates, and extremely remote operations.
Land Well Testing
TETRA operates a wide range of surface well testing and flowback systems configured for every type of land operation, including hydraulic well-control equipment and HP/HT frac flowback equipment for high flow-rate, highly abrasive well control.
Our sand-management systems with sand filters and sand cyclones handle flow rates of up to 100 MMSCFD of gas or 20,000 BPD of fluid, and 20,000 lbs/day of solids. We also offers zero-discharge burner and incineration systems, and H2S, SO2, and NOX emissions-monitoring systems as an integral part of many of these packages.
Remote Well Testing
TETRA offers trailer-mounted well test packages for high mobility, for operations in remote locations.
Arctic Well Testing
TETRA maintains arctic-winterized equipment for operations in ultra-cold climates (below -40°F/-40°C).
Offshore Well Testing
Our offshore packages are enclosed in DNV frames built to the highest standards in Europe and the U.S.
