Halliburton’s Modular Stimulation Plant Gets New Tanks
Suretank, a global leader in the supply of DNV 2.7-1 certified cargo carrying units to the offshore oil and gas industry, has engineered and installed a range of highly customised tanks for Halliburton’s on board modular stimulation plant in Kakinada, India.
Three different types of customised tanks were manufactured across Suretank’s three manufacturing plants in China, Thailand and Ireland, drawing on the engineering expertise at each facility to ensure the units were ready for commissioning on board the Halliburton modular stimulation plant which is now offshore and fully operational.
The tanks include a lined acid transport tank for transporting full strength hydrochloric acid, custom designed dual compartment lined mixing tanks and large brine and gel mixing tanks which had specific requirements for attaching laboratories to their top decks.
Greg Bailey, Suretank’s sales manager for Asia Pacific said: “This was a very specialised and logistically challenging project. The customer had very specific requirements for all three types of tanks and so we drew upon the expertise that we have globally across our manufacturing sites to deliver exactly what they needed. The end result was a huge success and demonstrates our ability to deliver a high quality service from anywhere in the world.”
Steve Page, Asset manager for Asia Pacific at Halliburton added: “Suretank are known within the industry for their engineering expertise and quality standards and so we turned to them to leverage their experience of delivering on this type of project. Dealing with one supplier for all the tanks simplified the process and because all of their products are manufactured to DNV 2.7-1 standards there were no issues around where they were produced. We’re looking forward to working with Suretank on similar projects in the future.”
