Established in 2008, StimWell Services has become a global provider of vessel-mounted Stimulation Services and is ISO and OHSAS accredited. Well established in the North Sea, StimWell’s Island Patriot vessel performs acid and propped fracturing treatments for all operators under a primary contract with BP Norge.
Designed to meet DNV Stimulation Vessel Class certification and to operate in any area of the globe, StimWell’s Island Patriot represents a step-change in vessel design philosophy. Built by StimWell and entering service in 2010, her carrying capacity and capabilities were substantially greater than vessels operating in the North Sea at that time, and many treating records have been set since her launch.
‘It is a tribute to the pre-planning, quay-side-testing, completion type and performance of StimWell that Wintershall now regard 10 days fracturing as their new marker-time for a 5 frac campaign in contrast to their historical norm of 32 days’
The core-team used to design and build the vessel consisted of highly experienced stimulation vessel personnel, taken from managerial and operational disciplines across the globe. StimWell prides itself that these personnel remain, carrying invaluable experience for development as the company expands into new markets.
StimWell has a deep commitment to research and has built a class-leading reputation for concept development and testing. In addition to a dedicated field laboratory, the Island Patriot comes complete with a fully equipped R&D laboratory, offering the capability to carry out a wide range of client specific testing.
