An Approach to Safety in the Design of Surface Well Test Facilities

You’re about to perforate a well and flow hydrocarbons to surface for the first time. Have you thought of everything? Has planning been adequate? The answer to these questions should be an emphatic yes; otherwise risk is not being managed. The objective of this series of articles is to describe a methodology for developing the safety design aspects of a well test; to answer the questions above confidently in the affirmative.

Paul and Rita from WTKI recently conducted an intermediate well testing fundamentals course in our Roma facility. The course content will further expand the knowledge of our operators, which is essential to Kinetic’s commitment to constantly improve the service quality delivered to our clients. Paul’s comprehensive knowledge of the subject matter and passion enables him to deliver the course, and engage participants in a manner that our operators related to, and allowed them to readily absorb the content. I feel the benefit to Kinetic and our clients will be significant and long lasting, I highly recommend the course, and WTKI.
