Fire Suppression for Well Site and Remote Storage

The Next Generation of Fire Protection

Talk To An Expert

Setting up a drilling and workover camp in a remote location is typically conducted like a military drill by the professional drilling companies. Everything has a pre-arranged location and they do it the same way every time. This builds continuity, safety, and efficiency into their mobilization. And that earns them revenue—because time is money in this business.

Well site camps can look like military camps too, with everything laid out around the drilling rig in a precise manner. Occupied spaces reside in one area, with site stores in another, along with a fuel depot for the heavy generators and equipment.

The remoteness also highlights the need to exercise a greater degree of caution and safety in how you operate. Help will not arrive quickly. A small problem can become a big problem.

The Fire Risk

This is especially the case with fire. In addition to the site’s inaccessibility, there is probably no water source available either. The crews at the site are on their own with limited resources for a significant period of time until help arrives.

A fire in any of a drilling camp’s storage sites can have serious consequences to the operation. The crews only carry what they think they will use, so the storage of tools and equipment is premium real estate. Also, since a typical drill site is powered by heavy diesel generators and drivers, fuel storage and distribution are super-critical.

A significant fire in the storage area for downhole tools and instruments can damage or destroy hundreds of thousands of dollars in highly technical equipment. While fuel and fuel storage and distribution equipment are comparatively inexpensive, everything on the site is ultimately powered by that fuel.

Far and away the biggest cost is downtime of the rig. With well completion paying $3 to $5 million per well*, drilling operations are big earners. Every day not spent drilling or working over a well represents a heavy hit to revenue.

The remoteness, value, and transient nature of drilling operations requires a quick-acting fire suppressant that extinguishes a fire while it is small. The ideal unit is self-contained, can activate with or without a detection system, and can withstand the rigors of the oil and gas fields.

The Solution

The Stat-X® aerosol fire suppression system is perfectly suited to protect vital enclosed storage and equipment as well as fuel provisioning at remote drilling sites. The Stat-X system consists of compact individual units that can be mounted to protect single pieces of equipment or configured for area total flooding. Being virtually maintenance-free, the Stat-X units are built to withstand the harshest of environments.
