Almansoori launches new production testing & stimulation vessel in Arabian Gulf

The vessel, MV Al Nisr DP-II, brings with it the capability to offer production testing and well stimulation of the highest level

AlMansoori Specialized Engineering, the oilfield services leader in the Middle East, has announced the deployment of the first of two planned production testing and stimulation vessels in the Arabian Gulf.


Announcing this decision as part of the company’s ongoing expansion of its comprehensive portfolio of oilfield services in the region at a press conference in Abu Dhabi, Nabil Al Alawi, the CEO of AlMansoori Specialised Engineering, said: “The new vessel, with its range of unique capabilities, will substantially reinforce our capacity to offer production testing and well stimulation services of the highest quality and an enhanced level of operational efficiency to our clients. This is part of our commitment to continue to offer our clients the highest levels of quality service and support.”


The vessel, MV Al Nisr DP-II, brings with it the capability to offer production testing and well stimulation of the highest level. All onboard testing equipment has been designed to conduct production testing on oil and gas wells with high H2S & CO2 levels. Additionally, the vessel has been fitted with the latest safety equipment available in the industry in order to ensure safe and trouble-free operations.


The oil production/testing capability of the vessel can accommodate up to 15,000 bbl/day with re-injection using oil re-injection pumps. The gas production/testing capability of MV Al Nisr can reach 70 MMSCFD (million standard cubic feet per day). The vessel has the ability to test single or multi-well developments and to allow full-scale production tests to be performed at remote offshore locations with the minimum of down time.


The MV Al Nisr is also equipped with high pressure pumping equipment and related facilities that are capable of handling various well servicing applications such as chemical pumping and squeezing; acid mixing and pumping for well stimulation; well killing operations; pressure testing; nitrogen lifting and well unloading and pigging pipelines.


The pumping and stimulation system has been configured to the latest international standards for automated mixing and pumping operations for a wide range of fluid volumes to efficiently enable various operations requirements.



The Al Nisr and its sister ship will be deployed in the Arabian Gulf to service the needs of some of AlMansoori Specialized Engineering’s leading clients.


Founded in 1977 in Abu Dhabi, AlMansoori Specialized Engineering has grown into the undisputed leading oilfield services provider in the Middle East region. Today the company has operations in as many as 27 different countries worldwide and employs more than 2,000 people.
