Seven new equipment models designed and manufactured by Rimera's Almetyevsk company have shown positive results in the course of tests conducted on the oil production sites of Gazpromneft-NNG, Tomskneft and RN-Purneftegaz.
Rimera Oilfield Equipment Successfully Passes Pilot Testing by Leading Oil Companies
0215ETsNAKI pump systems made by Alnas with dismantling length of 5 and 5A successfully ran for 365 days, twice exceeding the acceptance requirements, and continue to extract oil on the Gazpromneft-NNG production sites. Expanding the capabilities of Rimera's Almetyevsk company, the positive results entitle it, for the first time in seven years, to bid for a contract to provide pumps to the Muravlenkovskneft subsidiary, with a reservoir fluid rate of 125 cubic meters per day. It is worth mentioning that the Group's services company, NCTB, has successfully partnered with the subsidiary. To deliver the services required by Muravlenkovskneft, Noyabrsk Central Tube Base launched a new production site in September.
Alnas' first-ever (at the time of pilot test start) Series 0615 compression pump ran continuously for nine days inside a Tomskneft well. The increase in the run life of the oilfield equipment totaled 187 days. Series 0615 is part of the company's new high-performance equipment range that meets all of oil companies' current requirements. Innovative design choices help provide these compression pump units with a longer in-service life, improve their performance and reduce running costs.
The successful testing trend is a testament to the efficiency of the Group's new designs and may become a factor in increasing Alnas sales.
In the course of November 2012, 15 more electric submersible pump systems made by Alnas will be shipped for pilot testing at LUKOIL-West Siberia (White Well Project), Gazpromneft, and RN-Stavropolneftegaz.
