Comprehensive testing of oilfield tools and perforating systems

Testing Solutions

Owen Oil Tools offers complete testing of downhole equipment at its North American headquarters in Godley, Texas. Convenient to the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, the Owen testing facility offers testing to API or supplier defined specifications. Equipment testing includes packers and bridge plugs, perforating charges and gun systems, and a wide variety of downhole components.

Simulated downhole testing ensures that equipment will perform to expectations before deploying it in your well. This is particularly valuable for companies encountering unusual well or formation conditions, new applications, or extremes of well temperature and/or pressure. Testing not only ensures that the equipment will work, but also that its performance under difficult conditions will be adequate to the task for which it is intended.

Testing is conducted under existing API recommended practices (RP) guidelines. For new applications where RP have not yet been established, Owen engineers can design custom tests, fabricate testing equipment, conduct the tests and collect data to satisfy users that their planned approach will deliver expected results.

Some Examples:

  • Product Verification Testing
    • - Extensive testing is conducted to verify product performance and reliability under simulated well conditions. Not limited to Owen products, tests can be designed and applied to third party equipment as well.

  • Fit-for-use Testing
    • - When a product or system is expected to encounter conditions that exceed its standard application, Owen can test for appropriateness and quantify results (e.g., evaluate effect of exposure to elevated pressures and temperatures, assess collateral damage to outer strings in multi-string scenarios).
