Addressed to Owners and Operators:

In these times of falling Oil prices and economical uncertainty, Efficiency should be a top priority.

Ask these three questions and keep fluid levels and dynamometers in mind:

Am I producing everything the well has to offer?
Is my pump pumping at maximum capacity?
What is the cost per BBL?
along with other questions can be answered with three noninvasive tests:

1. Fluid Levels analysis:

Fluid level is used throughout the patch, but it is not used to its fullest potential. Typically fluid level information is only used to locate the liquid level.  Much more valuable information is derived from a Fluid Level Analysis:

  • Gas Flow

  • Gas to Liquid Ratio

  • PBHP

  • SBHP

  • Well Potential

Most of this information can be acquired without shutting down production. The well will need to be shut in and allowed to go static to acquire SBHP, this can be done when well is down waiting for repairs or yearly gas company shut downs.

2. Dynamometer Analysis:

Typically dynamometer data is not requested until operator has pulled and replace the pump with no improvement only to find out that a simple adjustment on the surface would have fixed the problem and extra rig time would not have been neededInformation available with Dynamometer Analysis:

  • Pump Efficiency

  • Rod Stress

  • Peak Torque

  • Surface Loads

  • Traveling/Standing Valve Leaks

  • Tubing Leaks

Incomplete pump fillage is a problem seen across the state and leads to bigger problems; fluid pound, rod buckling and tubing wear. Identifying problems before the rig is over the hole cuts down on waiting time.

3. Power/Current Analysis:

Electricity is your largest daily expense, but by using electricity you have given yourself options to efficiently pump your well, Pump Off Controller and Timer. Available information from Power/Current Analysis:

  • What is the real motor current?

  • What is the exact power consumption, KWH/day, $/month, $/bbl?

  • Is the motor over/under sized for the load?

  • What movement of the weights is required to electrically balance the unit?

  • What is total system efficiency?

All of these tests will point out opportunities for improvement, lower electric cost, more production, fewer pulling jobs. It all comes down to $/BBL!!
