HOUSTON -- Halliburton has unveiled its new vessel, the Stim Star Borneo, a self propelled barge designed to work in offshore oil and gas fields with the additional capability of servicing wells in the rivers and deltas in Indonesia.

The vessel is fully equipped to handle all phases of production stimulation including acidizing, acid fracturing, proppant fracturing, sand control, and conformance treatments. In addition, it is equipped to provide well intervention services using coiled tubing.

At 200 ft (61 m) length and 66 ft (20 m) width, the vessel has an operating draft of 10.5 ft (3.2 m) offshore and 9 ft (2.7 m) in the delta areas. Above deck storage capacities consist of 5,200 gal acid, almost 4,400 gal additives, and 350,000 lb proppant. Below deck capacities are almost 3,500 bbl of process and completion fluid and over 4,700 bbl of drill water. Maximum fracturing rate is 18 b/min with sand and 25 b/min with clean fluid.

TheStim Star Borneo meets or exceeds the requirement of SOLAS and other regulatory bodies, the company says. In addition, the vessel is outfitted to provide environmentally sustainable operations.

The vessel serves as a platform that enables Halliburton to deliver the following services:
• Hydraulic fracturing
• Tight gas reservoir technologies
• Horizontal well fracturing
• Limited entry to bypass damage
• Near-wellbore damage removal
• Matrix acidizing
• Foamed acid
• Near-wellbore damage removal (cont'd)
• Scale removal (mechanical and chemical)
• Waterblock removal
• Horizontal well cleanup.
Conformance Solutions
• Chemical water shut off
• Relative permeability modification.
Sand Control Solutions
• New completions
• Fracpack
• High rate water pack
• Thru-tubing intervention
• Resin sand consolidation
• Thru-tubing gravel pack with coiled tubing.
Well Intervention Solutions – Coiled Tubing
• Nitrogen services
• Fishing and milling
• Stimulation
• Sediment washing
• Logging.

TheStim Star Borneo is equipped with Halliburton's proprietary InstaVis gel-on-the-fly system that uses a fully hydrated fracturing gel concentrate and provides the following advantages:
• Eliminates waiting for gel hydration.
• Enables almost instantaneous adjustments to help match fluid characteristics to formation parameters.
