Kimray's liquid slugs.

Managing Fluid Density Changes in Early Production

I was recently working with a producer in New Mexico who was experiencing liquid slugs on a recently fracked well. His team was having to perform regular shut-ins to deal with them. He asked if there was any way we could help. Fluid Density and Liquid Slugs A producer injects his fracked well with sand

Gas Dehydration Tool: Glycol Circulation Conversion Chart

What is Gas Dehydration? All natural gas comes to the surface with water vapor. At this early stage of production,  “wet gas” refers to natural gas. Gas dehydration is the process of separating this water from the gas in order to sell the “dry gas” for end use. The most common method of removing water

Liquid and Well Slugs in a Back Pressure Valve

Recently I visited a customer’s operations in west Texas. The challenges we encountered there—including valve placement and well slugs—were very common. Therefore, I thought I would take a minute to share the findings in case it’s helpful to other producers.  The customer had been using Kimray control valves and equipment for the life of this

Application Guide for Dehydration

Glycol dehydration is a method of removing water from natural gas. When gas comes to the surface it contains some element of water. This gas/water mixture—often referred to as “wet gas”—can cause a variety of problems for downstream gas production processes, measurement, and equipment. Introducing Glycol into the mixture traps the water embedded in natural

How to Weight a Float Ball for Liquid Level Control

To control the gas, liquid, and oil interface in process equipment, many producers employ a liquid level controller in conjunction with a mechanical liquid dump valve. A mechanical level controller consists of three primary parts: A float ball, which is inserted into the vessel A trunnion, which is bolted onto the exterior of the vessel An
