MULTIPLE PASSING VALVES SEALED AFTER INJECTION OF VALVE LUBRICANT 601TM FOR ADCO, BAB FIELD – ABU DHABI

Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Petroleum Operations Limited (ADCO) Bab Field is located in the onshore area of Abu Dhabi Emirates, on the southwest of Abu Dhabi city. It is the largest onshore field in Abu Dhabi based on its area. The field covers approximately 1200 sq.km and located between two urban communities (Madinat Zayed and Marfa).

Bab is considered as both oil and gas field critical to the future of Abu Dhabi. Bab’s oil production capacity presents around a quarter of ADCO’s current total capacity, while its contribution to gas production represents approximately 75% of total ADCO associated and non-associated gas.

The Problem

ADCO were experiencing issues operating valves and reported passing valves in several wells throughout the Bab field.

Their incumbent valve lubricant was not able to provide an effective preventative maintenance solution to preserve valve functionality and prevent leakage.

The Solution

ADCO discussed their operational problems with an RS Clare Technical Sales Engineer and Valve Lubricant 601TM was offered as a high performance, capable solution. A field trial of was agreed to inject 601 into Gas Well’s Bb-195, 373 and 466. The original results can be seen below:

After injecting Valve Lubricant 601TM into the valves on the 3 wellheads that had all been passing, the passing stopped and operatives found the valves easier to operate. They continued to monitor the valves for 2 months and all results reported from the trial were favourable. The same trials were then conducted for two oil production wells and operatives reported the positive same results, with Valve Lubricant 601TM successfully able to stop the leaks and improve ease of valve operation.
