Oil Production from Low-rate Wells
In the recent times, there have been increased efforts to exploit natural oil reserves in low permeability formations. Many questions have been raised on how to optimize production and drill effectively in complete horizontal and vertical wells with an aim of boosting economic production rates. For starters, oil production from low-rate wells is associated with numerous problems such as damage induced to equipment during drilling and completion, high production costs, high cost frequent maintenance of equipment, low pump calibration, rod abrasion problems and limitations to extract from inclined shafts.
Oil locking and sticking are commonly associated with sucker rod pumps. However, the good news that there is a new technology that eliminates ground pumping unit and instead, only has a VSD and transformer on the service. This improves production and promotes better efficiency when dealing with marginal oil wells.
With the increased demand for petroleum worldwide, companies have been forced to come up with innovative technologies whose ultimate aim is to maximize production while at the same time, cut costs and promote better resource utilization.
What is Linear Electric Submersible Pump?
Triol LESP is a product that embraces innovativeness by combining the advantages associated with traditional oil production methods. Using it, you’re guaranteed to solve complications that come with the production of thin and bad oil or low permeability oil. The simplest definition of what is a submersible pump is these pumps don’t use any sucker rod and therefore, get rid of numerous complications associated with production of oil from low-rate wells.
What are the Advantages of Linear Electric Submersible Pump?
- The pumps are very economical because they lower the overall cost of production
- They consume less electricity thus contributing to diminishing costs
- LESP uses less space which is advantageous in reducing the space required at a site
- Compared to rocker-machine, LESP involves minimum effort of moving elements
- Since they don’t use any sucker rod, you’re guaranteed there will be no wear of tubing and sucker rod
- They get rid of oil lock as well as decrease the sand plug
- The pumps are reliable and easier to manage because they require fewer trips to check pumps
- Remote monitoring and adjustments
Why it’s the Right Time to Embrace Linear Electric Submersible Pump
Thanks to Triol LESP, low-rate wells have become efficient and therefore, having Linear Electric Submersible Pump is an excellent decision you can ever make for your site. Replacing the sucker rod, Linear Electric Submersible Pump allows for easier installation and maintenance. Since there are no rods going up and down, it can operate efficiently on both horizontal and deviated oil wells.
