StimFORCE Modular Stimulation Vessel Saved Time and Money

Baker Hughes served 27 wells, saved client $9 million

In January 2008, an operator working off the African west coast performing batch drilling and completion operations required intensive marine vessel stimulation services for relatively short intervals. Afterwards, the vessel being used was released until needed for the next set of batch completions.

Because the vessels were only required for a few months, the stimulation vessel providers required that the operator reserve service date windows in advance; however, if the rig wasn’t ready for stimulation during those dates, the operator’s reservation was lost. Valuable rig time was being lost until the next available stimulation vessel service window could be reserved.
