Operations of marine stimulation vessels are considered highly risky by oil and gas industry standards. Activity performed by these vessels includes scale, asphaltene, hydrate, water and sand control, acidizing and hydraulic fracturing. Risks include the hazards inherent in the fluids used (acids of different strengths, non-aromatic solvents, chemical inhibitors, etc.), the pressures under which they are pumped into an oil or gas well, and navigation hazards such as sea and weather conditions and potential leaks. The need to run simultaneous work-such as pumping and maintenance on the stimulation plant-in a confined space adds to the overall health, safety and environmental risk. It is like having the base plant and the well in the same site.
Exposure to chemicals, high noise levels, weather conditions and stress due to marine confinement are a daily reality for the workforce.
The industry has applied intense efforts to minimize these risks.
