The test facility works in three main areas: Ullrigg, High-Pressure Test Halls, and TFL. At Ulrigg, projects are conducted that are related to activities involving drill floor machinery and the use of equipment and systems on the drill floor. In addition, all activities in connection with the execution of operations in testing out of downhole equipment. This category includes activities relating to handling drill sludge. Two of the UBBS projects are also members of Rogaland County’s examination board for well technology. All technical examinations in this subject are made at Ullrigg, and in the course of 2016 we examined 157 candidates in the field.
Our second area of activity is well equipment and services. Specially developed test areas handle testing of various products and services for use in wells. There are strict requirements for the handling of high energy, a combination of high pressure and temperature. Activities in this area also represent the greatest volume of assignments.
The third area of activity is TeamTFL, the section that performs a Through Flow Line service for Statoil on Snorre-A. Over the course of 2016, this team conducted and assisted in seven offshore operations. These well intervention assignments were completed on schedule and within the budgeted amounts, and contributed to increased production and regularity at the Snorre field.
