Accurately replicating downhole conditions (pressure, temperature, foaming, viscosity, gas content, etc.) is a serious problem for most oil and gas production companies. Electrical submersible pumping (ESP) systems and other downhole production solutions are often installed without any reliability testing whatsoever. This increases the likelihood of failure and can lead to significant loss of time and money.
Novomet partnered with the IM Gubkin Russian State Oil and Gas University to develop a multifunctional testing and experimentation complex inside our CONNAS Design Bureau facility in Moscow. This facility features two labs and eight test wells of various size that enable us to mimic downhole conditions and perform thorough testing before finalizing designs and beginning mass production. The CONNAS test wells and labs give us a clear advantage over all our competitors inside Russia and most international production service companies.
We currently perform tests under the following scenarios:
