Susceptible to Liquid Loading
Gas wells tend to decline quickly making them susceptible to liquid loading. There are around 500,000 gas wells in the US. Over 90% of them are in steep decline and produce far below a critical rate of 1,000 Mscf per day. Almost 300,000 stripper wells produce below 60 Mscf per day
Liquid loading from condensed or connate fluids sharply reduces the production in low producing wells.
Early and Automated Identification and Prediction
We provide 5 different integrated methods for early and automated identification and prediction of liquid loading. Best practice logic, data analytics, and NPV calculation lead to a selection of the most feasible deliquification method. All results are visualized in a comprehensive dashboard.
Added Value Gained
Identifying and predict wells that are underperforming due to liquid loading. Timely prediction of liquid loading events prevents wells from been killed by water and take countermeasures. NPV calculation of necessary workover and selection of the best deliquification method let operators better plan and execute workover in the field. Premature abandonment is avoided, and investments are optimized by selecting and prioritizing the best workover candidates.
