Pressure in upstream completions can be a hazard to human safety, costly well completion equipment, and productivity.
New technology provides a fail-safe alternative to legacy pressure management equipment resulting in improved safety and efficiency in upstream completion.
Energy companies from across the world come to Oseco for pressure management technology, training, and processes. Some of the most common oilfield safety questions asked are:
A service company's ability to manage extreme variance in pressures within completions is a critical component to:
These common occurrences can cause damage and loss of production time if pressure relief technology is not fast enough or installed properly.
In August 2016 a service company almost half way through a high rate pressure job when without notice, a screen out occurred, sending the pressure soaring above the MAWP which was established at 8,900 psi. While the pumps were staggered to handle any pressure spikes, the slow reaction time created an overpressure event.
The pressure spike was terminated by the Oseco Safety Plug engineered as a fuse to activate at 9,400 psi. Pressure was safely relieved and catastrophic asset failure was prevented. Pressure never exceed 9,400 psi.
Notably, the nitrogen valve never activated...
The Oseco Safety Plug is primarily used for well protection and high pressure lines protecting against catastrophic failure of well casings against pressure variants or spikes. The advanced technology outperforms common spring and gas valves in four major areas:
In 2016, a prominent energy company contacted Oseco for assistance managing pressure in the upstream operation. Their crews were experiencing up to three activations a week.
Working with Oseco, it was discovered the ultimate root cause was a water hammer effect from opening an isolation plug valve to the safety plug with 3,000 psi behind it.
The solution was to bleed pressure to <1000 psi before opening the valve.
Since the change ...

Well Casing Protection
Pressure variances can be an obstacle throughout the entire upstream process. At any of these points there are safety risks and opportunities to lose profits due to inefficiency. Identify all of the areas in your process that will benefit from improved pressure management technology.
Oseco has solutions to the many aspects of pressure management in upstream completion.
Many aspects of pressure management are misunderstood providing opportunities for those companies who learn the solutions to outperform their competitors.

Case Study: Colorado
By working in a similar fashion to a fuse in electrical engineering, the Oseco Safety Plug for well protection activates in just .004 seconds eliminating the overpresurrization found in other devices used under the same conditions.
The Oseco Safety Plug reduces average rig-up time by at least 30 minutes compared to valve technology.
Manufactured to meet certification codes for ASME section 8 and API 520 to ensure a precise and consistent burst pressure.
No maintenance, repairs or logistics of valve technology.
