Go System® A Proven Method for Dewatering Oil and Gas Wells
US Patent No. 7,500,525 March 2009
Liquid loading is an oilfield term to describe the gradual build-up of well bore fluid within the well. This condition creates back pressure on the formation and results in a decrease of expected production rates. One approach used by ALTEC artificial lift technology production specialists is the introduction of the Go System into the liquid-loaded well. Benefits include:
• Decrease of the critical flow-rate beneath the packer
• Elimination/Reduction of fluid build-up across the wellbore perforations during production
• Maximization of net gas production in well by maximizing the reservoir draw-down and keeping perforations dry (near well-bore dehydration)
This patented technology does not require surface control and allows the well to flow longer on its own energy. Contact an ALTEC production specialist to see if this approach is a good fit to address your production challenge.
