Hot-Hed was asked what could be done to help Aramco recover the old, non-functional and/or out-dated well equipment that they had on location and install a newer, more suitable stack on the head of the old oil well. Having been left without care for many years in the Saudi Arabian Desert, the oil well had seriously deteriorated.
Hot-Hed went onto this worksite with minimal equipment - only a crane, portable welding equipment, electrical generation equipment and compression tools - and completed the task without the need to utilize a derrick.
Saudi Aramco was very pleased with the outcome of this Wellhead and Christmas Tree Completion System Rehabilitation and are considering more onsite projects of this type. By completing this project without the use of a derrick, Hot-Hed saved the Client a great deal of time and financial resources.
