Well stimulation vessel

Equipment, storage, and mixing options improve flexibility

BIGORANGE XVIII was purpose-built for North Sea operations, with blending, pumping, and storage systems incorporated from the outset into the vessel’s unique design. From simple acid stimulation to complex fracturing operations, the onboard equipment and experienced crew and engineers ensure maximum efficiency and effectiveness.

The blending system enables delivery of complex stimulation designs requiring multiple types and grades of proppant. The addition of proppant is computed by process controllers that automatically compensate for any change in treatment rate to ensure the correct concentration is achieved under all operating conditions. The flexible system allows any combination of four metered dry additives with ten liquid additives.
