Setegap Ventures Petroleum – Petrofac – Cendor B – Sand Clean-out Project

A smooth, seamless operation, VOS removes 95% from two wells

The decision by Setegap Ventures Petroleum Sdn. Bhd. (SVP) to chose us to deliver a desanding equipment and manpower package to the Cendor B platform in the South China Sea, Malaysia wasn’t an instant one.

Important decisions like these rarely are.

In fact, before contracting us in November 2012 a huge amount of work went into SVP determining that not only did we have the best experience and expertise for the project, but also that we were able to provide exactly the right equipment and team to operate it effectively.

From site meetings, to detailed technical analysis to pre-production consultation and on-site operational/safety, at every step of the way we were able to show clearly that we were the ideal project partner.

SVP’s diligence and our ability has been handsomely rewarded in the form of an extremely successful clean out project.

A project that delivered:

  • A smooth, seamless operation
  • Clear project communication
  • Minimized downtime
  • Zero production shutdowns
  • Assured safety
  • Great value
  • Huge cost savings by protecting downstream production equipment

Says Devan Nair, GM at SVP: “From the outset it was clear that Vantage had both the right equipment and as importantly the right expertise to protect our platform processing equipment from expensive sand damage. A job very well done.”

Here’s what we did

We supplied a desanding system to separate sand from return well fluids after coiled tubing. At the same time we prevented any sand carryover into downstream production facilities.

In conjunction with coiled tubing and Nitrogen services our desander package also cleaned two wells removing 95% of all sand (200 kg) from both wells.

Here’s how we did it

We used a high efficiency 5K Dual Pot Sand Filter with a further sand handling treatment and packaging system downstream.

The result?

Continuous operation, zero downtime and an extremely satisfied client.
Concludes Devan: “It’s great to have found a partner as professional and reliable as VOS. A truly excellent service that we’ve since used on 2 more desanding projects since Cendor. Highly recommended.”
