Engineered Solution Delivers Quick Implementation of Modular EPF Layout, Leveraging Existing Equipment and Running Four Years With Zero NPTDownload PDF
Separate fluids and stabalize oil for export from the Aullador-I oil well
Santander Province, Colombia
Provide engineering expertise, project management, and implementation of EPF, including:
An oil and gas producer needed to efficiently separate fluids, securely burn gas, and stabilize oil for export via truck from the Aullador-I oil well, located in Colombia’s Santander province. Although there was no existing infrastructure in the area to support this production, existing processing equipment was available for quick setup of a standalone early production facility (EPF). A specialized Halliburton EPF team was commissioned to provide expertise in customized facility design and project management, ensuring asset optimization via proper installation, operation, and maintenance. This integrated solution fulfilled client requirements for producing high-quality oil in a timely and cost-effective manner, in addition to meeting local and international regulations.
Halliburton EPF engineers configured and mobilized equipment in an innovative modular plant layout that was quick to install, permitting easy upgrades if capacity needs were to increase. With the help of engineering and project management teams, the EPF design was planned and equipped to successfully handle a processing capacity of 1,000 BPD and 5 MMscfd, with uninterrupted production. Putting in place a competent operational team and a maintenance program further ensured a smooth-running facility.

The following statistics reflect what was accomplished by the Aullador-1 EPF project in 1,655 days of operation:
This EPF achieved fast-track, excellent performance thanks to the modular design, process flow, plant layout execution, and equipment mobilization, as well as to a competent operational crew and maintenance plan. The results exceeded the producer’s expectations of optimizing production and delivering high-quality, marketable oil (above standard, per documentation) with low capital investment in a temporary, standalone EPF. This Aullador-I EPF enabled the operator to experience continuous, uninterrupted service with no NPT, accidents, or incidents in over four years of operation.
