GAS WELL DELIQUIFICATION PDF

Liquid loading can reduce production and shorten the lifecycle of a well costing a company millions in revenue. The 2nd Edition serves as a guide discussing the most frequently used methods and tools used to diagnose liquid loading problems and reduce the detrimental effects of liquid loading on gas production. With new extensive chapters on Coal Bed Methane and Production this is the essential reference for operating engineers, reservoir engineers, consulting engineers and service companies who supply gas well equipment. It provides managers with a comprehensive look into the methods of successful Production Automation as well as tools for the profitable use, production and supervision of coal bed gases. Operating engineers and reservoir engineers, consulting engineers, service companies that supply equipment for gas wells, academic market. James F.

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 fracturing and well completions.

She has co-authored and edited the book, "Petroleum Well Construction", and a number of papers related to well completions. James F. Lea X DR. LEA, JR. He has been an SPE Distinguished Lecturer two times and has presented and organized numerous conferences for artificial lift.

He played a major role in organizing the Denver Gas Well De-Watering forum, which is continuing after multiple successful occurrences. He has authored or co-authored: the book "Deliquification of Gas Wells" Elesevier , the chapter of the new SPE productions Handbook on Artificial Lift Selection and other book chapters, as well as over 65 technical papers and articles on artificial lift systems.

About the course Designed For You will learn Course Content As gas wells deplete, the velocity in the tubing drops and eventually liquids from the well and from condensation begin to accumulate in the tubing. This increase of liquids in the tubing adds back pressure on the formation, which in turn reduces flow or even stops flow all together.

The course introduces this problem and discusses how to recognize liquid loading as opposed to other possible well problems. The course will then cover the various methods of solving the problem of liquid loading, showing how to apply the various solutions and the advantages and disadvantages of each method. Solution methods include use of surfactants, velocity strings, compression, use of plunger lift, various other pumping methods, gas lift, and the injection of fluids below a packer so gas can flow up the annulus.

There are about , gas wells in the USA and most are liquid loaded. The course will consist of slide presentations, example problems, and discussion. Some films will be shown. Effects of deviated or horizontal well applications on all methods are discussed. Special considerations for the use of each system in unconventional or horizontal wells are also discussed. One personal computer is provided, at additional cost, for each two participants.

Gas Well Deliquification - GWD

Abstract Many gas wells cease producing economically long before their reservoirs have depleted and artificial lift applications for removing liquids from gas wells around the world are becoming more and more important. Proper application of artificial lift technology to a loaded up gas well can be one of the most profitable ventures that a company undertakes in its overall investment opportunity portfolio. 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. This presentation will illuminate the importance of gas well deliquification technologies for the future.
