WELLHEAD COMPRESSION TECHNOLOGY HOERBIGER’S SOLUTION TO MATURE

OIL & GAS FIELDS

artificial lift methods to increase oil and gas production

Backpressure in Oil Wells

Whether it is in emerging wells with high levels of gas, or induced by any other artificial system, the gas molecules that come with the fluid go towards the surface are retained by the seals. This gas builds up creating a backpressure that lowers level of the liquid column and creates a force against the pumping equipment.

The operators are forced to lower the engine’s RPM and/or modify the stroke of the equipment in order to continue operating. In addition, the presence of gas generates other unwanted problems such as gas lock or gas interference in the pumping equipment.

Liquid-Loading in Gas Wells

When the reservoirs are exploited, the gas is consumed and the reservoir pressure begins to decrease losing strength and speed and accumulating condensates in the bottom of the well. This phenomenon is known as liquid loading. The gas flow falls abruptly, as it bubbles through the tubing and the well dies.

By connecting the wellhead compressor on the surface, it lowers the pressure in the well, increasing the gas speed and restoring production. We have many success stories even on previously abandoned wells.

The compressors can work alone or in combination with plungers lift and foaming agents.

Unconventional Production

Does your company explore and produce in unconventional fields? Then our compressors are appropriate for the early facilities and modular production plants in shale oil, shale gas, tight gas or coal bed methane (CBM).

The compressors are placed parallel depending on the quantity necessary to capture the low pressure gas and help process the liquids. When the flow rate decreases, the compressors can be relocated to where it is needed.

HOERBIGER can calculate, design, sell or lease the complete plant, carrying out the auxiliary services and well testing.
