Failure analysis, new equipment specification and diagnosis techniques deliver ability to identify and prevent a production loss of 3,400 barrels a day.
$5 million in lost production identified. ESP training and mentoring in Ecuador finds 67 improvements in software, improving runlife of equipment and increasing skill levels of personnel.
Combination of gaslift and ESPs in the North sea creates significant gains. $1.35 million potential increase in daily production identified.
Significant production increase in the corcel field in the Llanos of Colombia with new ESP system designed and specified, with ongoing analysis of ESP performance.
Repeat failures of rod pumps halved, saving an estimated $16 million a year. Pump off controllers applied and the re-use of low cost parts stopped enabling the system to be capable of achieving three-year runlife.
A suggestion of a trial of long stroke rod pumps successfully enhanced production, through identifying the correct lift method for each well.
Training and mentoring with Hupecol’s enthusiastic team on ESP diagnosis techniques results in almost double the production of their 10 wells.
A change in contracting strategy saves $3.75 million in 6 months. The change also drives cooperative approach to failure analysis, identifies quality issues and drives ESP equipment specification improvements.
An operator had been running a well for 3 years, but it hadn’t been optimized (for?). After running an analysis, production was increased by 500 barrels of oil per day which was more than double the previous production.
