Halliburton provides both modular, skid-based cementing units and portable bulk plants.
Modular Cementing Skid Units Halliburton manufactures and installs modular diesel and electric cementing skid units to provide cementing and well-control pumping operations for every type of offshore rig from jack up to deepwater.
Their modular design reduces the amount of time and cost required to install the unit on offshore drilling rigs. Additionally, modularity provides greater flexibility, enabling the unit to be tailored to meet the exact power train configuration needs of the operation. Halliburton skid units are type-certified to both ABS-CDS and DNV Dirll (n) for Safe Area or Zone II hazardous area classification.
At the heart of Halliburton cementing skid units is the RCM® IIIr cement mixing system. This system enables operators to obtain consistent, high-quality cement slurries by mixing the correct proportions of dry material and fluids.
Skid units provide improved environmental performance with significant sound and vibration control as well as dust control at the RCM IIIr mixing system.
Portable Bulk Plants Our portable bulk plants store materials for spacers and cement slurries, enabling the formulation of engineered cementing solutions to suit any well condition. Portable bulk plants can take as little as 48 hours to set up.
To date more than 80 Halliburton portable cement bulk plants operate at locations, ranging from Angola, Mozambique and Nigeria to Russia, Indonesia, the Middle East and South America among other areas.
Portable bulk plant facilities can use 2,000 to 3,000-lb bags of cement. Pneumatic fill lines, running into the storage tanks, allow for filling from pneumatic transports, including trucks or trailers, boats, barges or air-transported pressure vessels.
To move cement from the plant to the rig, Halliburton offers a fully equipped onshore or offshore system. The onshore system includes a 1,410 cubic foot bulk storage trailer, a 400 cubic foot bulk transport truck and a 660 cubic foot bulk transport trailer. The offshore system includes an 80 cubic foot Steady Flow™ separator air removal device, as well as a wide range of pressure vessels for bulk storage and delivery during offshore jobs.
Halliburton's SeaWave service offers a versatile solution for effective and consistent processing of water for discharge for offshore completions and production. The SeaWave unit relies on electrocoagulation to destabilize particulate and break oil/water emulsions, typically achieving 99% reduction in contaminants.
Multi-Chem understands that a properly engineered and implemented chemical treatment program can contribute to significant savings in deepwater/CAPEX projects. That’s why we dedicate the time and technology to assure that every treatment will continue to flow through every umbilical, every time – no matter how long the deepwater line runs.
Our Xaminer® Array Sonic Tool (XAST) service offers simultaneous monopole and crossed-dipole sonic information. P-wave and S-wave slowness can be obtained in a range of formation conditions, borehole sizes, and even extreme borehole hydrostatic pressures.

Each pad contains six resistivity sensors, providing a total of 36 microresistivity measurements circumferentially around the borehole.
Wireline formation pressure testing and sampling runs should be quick, completed in a single descent, provide pure single phase fluid samples, and deliver the required pressure tests along with the associated mobilities and pressure gradients. The Halliburton Reservoir Description Tool (RDT™) employs several best in class features to help you meet these goals.
The search for hydrocarbons in HP/HT conditions should not exclude the collection of PVT samples and formation pressures.
