NIDC Indigenizes Eco-Friendly Well Test Burner

The National Iranian Drilling Company's experts have designed and manufactured the first  indigenized well test burner dubbed "Land Burner" to address the environmentally-unfriendly fallout conditions that occur from crude oil disposal during traditional well testing operations.
"Two versions of the equipment have been produced, with six successful trial operations in two major oilfields, namely South Azadegan and Sarvestan," Jahangir Shojaei, NIDC's technical services director, was quoted as saying by NIDC's news portal.
Well testing during exploration and appraisal includes the production of hydrocarbons with a temporary production facility to obtain fluid samples. Burners are used to prevent the pollution of land or marine surface through the release of explored liquids during testing.
According to Shojaei, the oil industry has been committed to environmentally-friendly exploration and appraisal, and with this improved burner technology, the fallout of unburned hydrocarbons and dense smoke clouds can be significantly reduced or eliminated during well-testing operations.
