The entire tubing string has to be deliquifixation the same size. With these basic concepts covered, the presentation will then present a brief overview of the four most commonly applied artificial lift techniques used for deliquifying a gas well; reciprocating rod lift, foamer injection, plunger lift and gas lift.

This paper discusses a new idea of using dielectric heating using microwaves to heat and vaporize the water and hydrocarbons in the wellbore, if present.

The basic concept of tubing design is to optimize the tubing in such a manner that it should be large enough in diameter which prevents excessive frictional pressure drop but at the same time, small enough, so that the velocity is high and liquid loading will not occur.

A common practice is to use a device called a plunger to lift the liquids. Continuous bypassconventional and gas assisted Use of foam to deliquefy gas deeliquification Hydraulic pumps Use of beam pumps to gad gas wells Gas lift Electrical submersible pumps Progressive cavity pumps Other methods to solve liquid loading problems. The production decrease requires solutions in order to fully realize the value of the well.

Maximize gas production using optimized dewatering techniques Recognize liquid loading in a gas well using field symptoms, critical velocity, and nodal analysis Recognize the advantages and disadvantages of various methods of liquid removal Best install and troubleshoot the various methods Understand economics of each method covered Course Content: One of the challenging problems of gas production is the liquid loading of a gas well. Initially the well has a high gas rate which enables it to carry the produced liquids to the surface.

A high gas velocity results in a mist flow pattern in which liquids are finely dispersed in the gas. She has taught artificial lift, production engineering and well completions for more than 20 years and has conducted a wide range of research in pipeline well flow, well construction for the protection of USDW’s, hydraulic deliquifkcation and well completions.

The course will gad cover the various methods of vas the problem of liquid loading, showing how to apply the various solutions and the advantages and disadvantages of each method. Plunger Lift – PLS.

Production and Completions Engineering Level: Continuously down-sizing the tubing involves multiple work-over operations, which eventually increases the cost.

By injecting a gas such as nitrogen into the wellbore at a specific point, the density of the fluid column can be reduced to the point that the reservoir pressure is once again able to lift fluids to the surface.

The progression of a typical gas well from initial production to its end can be described as shown in Fig. Generally there is an agreement that a critical velocity is tied to the pressure, along with the gas quality, and surface tensions of the fluids to be lifted and although there is some disagreement as to the mechanism that defines the way that the fluid is lifted near the critical rate, the resulting critical velocities predictions appear to be relatively accurate.

Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: Deliqhification well deliquificationalso referred to as “gas well dewatering”, is the general term for technologies used to remove water or condensates build-up from producing gas wells.

The course introduces this problem and discusses how to recognize liquid loading as opposed to other possible well problems. She worked for Atlantic Richfield ARCO in domestic and international production operations, where she designed gas lift, reciprocating rod and electrical pump installations, in addition to well completions and workovers.

Of these solutions the most commonly supplied are Compression reduction in surface pressureReduced ID of tubing, and addition of foamers through continuous injection of liquid foam or by surfactant sticks, plunger lift, gas deliquificatiln, hydraulic jet pump, and rod pump.


The well head, deliqyification master valves and flow tee, must be the same size as the tubing.

She has co-authored and edited the book, “Petroleum Well Construction”, and a number of papers related to well completions. He has been an SPE Distinguished Lecturer two times and has presented and organized numerous conferences deliquifciation artificial lift.

The ultimate recovery of gas is dependent on the economic removal of accumulated liquids, to allow the gas to get produced. The accumulated liquid may be in the form deliquofication formation water, condensed water or hydrocarbons condensate which acts as a hindrance to the formation gas getting produced. G and Dukler A.

The dollars invested relative to the dollars returned, the rapid payout, and the generally low risk to reward nature of their spend is expected to continue to propel rapid expansion of Gas Well Deliquification Technologies into the fore seeable future. Some films will be shown.

Intermediate Instructors who teach this course: Special considerations for the use of each system in unconventional or horizontal wells are also discussed. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. deliqufiication

One personal computer is provided, at additional cost, for each two participants. Effects of deviated or horizontal well applications on all methods are discussed. Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ Gas Lift – GLI. In the case of multiple valves, the assembly must be stripped down to minimize the height of the tree.

Gas well deliquification

Abstract One of the challenging problems of gas production is the liquid loading deliquificaation a gas well. Liquid loading occurs when the produced gas velocity falls below the critical velocity, and hence, cannot carry the produced liquid from the well bore.

It is the inability of the produced gas to remove the produced liquids from the well bore. He has authored or co-authored: For further information, contact our In-House Training Coordinator at one of the numbers listed below.
