Baker Hughes introduces new Gulf of Mexico stimulation vessel: StimFORCE
HOUSTON – Baker Hughes has launched the StimFORCE well stimulation vessel, a new addition to the company’s fleet of stimulation vessels.
The StimFORCE GoM adds increased capacity and reduces costs with customized, singl- trip solutions to the Gulf of Mexico market. The modular system is designed for offshore and shallow water pumping projects. StimFORCE will join the existing fleet of vessels, Blue Dolphin and Blue Tarpon, currently operating in the Gulf of Mexico.
“The StimFORCE vessel’s pumping capacity of 8,800 HHP combined with the large flexible deck configuration allows for multiple well acid or chemical treatments in a single trip, without the need to return to the dock and resupply,” said Kevin Wetherington, Managing Director, Gulf of Mexico. “The vessel’s fluid system, quality control laboratory and remote data acquisition services ensure critical pumping information is available during all operational phases.”
