Plunger Lift

Case Study: Optimizing Plunger Lift with an Electric Actuator

BACKGROUND The primary motivation for the implementation of the electric actuator was operational efficiency. With the current conventional plunger set ups, the field relies entirely on pneumatics: using supply gas to actuate a multitude of valves. Stainless steel tubing (usually 3/8”) is used to pull gas off of a scrubber bottle upstream of a regulator.

Three Stimulation Methods for Aging Wells

Upstream oil and gas producers are often looking to get increased efficiency and make their operations leaner, and never more so than in our current climate. One proven way to do this is to maximize production on the wells they currently have open through well stimulation. The more these existing assets produce, the better. There

An Electric Solution for Plunger Lift

Plunger lift has provided our industry with secondary recovery for many years. It has taken on a more prominent role with the recommendation of the EPA that plunger lift be used instead of gas blow down as a way to alleviate bottom-hole pressure and remove liquids from the wellbore. The purpose of this piece is
