PTS has developed the largest well testing system built for emergency response to deepwater well events. HWCG and PTS will host a Well Testing and Water Treatment Showcase in Broussard, LA on November 7 and 8 for our members to walk-through the complete offshore production testing package, which will be rigged up for viewing. The equipment is designed for rapid deployment to enable quick well containment and control to meet current BSEE regulations.
Members of the HWCG team traveled to Washington D.C. earlier this year for the annual update review with the Director of the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE). Pictured (left to right): Michael Noel, HWCG Commercial Director, Ross Frazer, HWCG Technical Director, David Bump, Chairman of Board Steering Committee, Bill Cowan, DITC Chairman, Craig Castile, HWCG Executive Director and David Coatney.
HWCG will collaborate with over 200 well control experts on May 9-10 during its annual source control drill in Houston, TX. Stone Energy Corporation, an independent oil and natural gas exploration and production company, will serve as the host for this year’s exercise. During this large-scale source control drill, Stone Energy will work to resolve a simulated well blowout scenario. HWCG’s Mutual Aid team, which includes experts from all sixteen member companies as well as vendors and response partners, will assist Stone in containing the blowout.
