Well Test Systems


Facilities installed on vessels or mobile offshore drilling units (MODUs) for the purpose of evaluating the quality and/or quantity of well fluid to determine whether the well should be completed for production or plugged and abandoned. Well test systems may include well control equipment, process pressure vessels, piping and electrical components, control systems, burners and gas flares and burner/flare booms.
