ISBN , He has authored or co-authored: the book “Deliquification of Gas Wells” ( Elesevier), the chapter of the new SPE productions Handbook on Artificial Lift Selection. Deliquification of a low-pressure gas well requires a different approach, tools, and staffing than artificially lifting an oil well.

Gas well deliquification – Wikipedia

Shari Dunn-Norman, James Lea As gas wells deplete, the velocity in the tubing drops and eventually liquids from the well and from condensation begin to accumulate in the tubing. Engineers, field technicians, field supervisors, and others who select, design, install, monitor and evaluate, or operate artificial lift systems for use in dewatering gas wells.

Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: Introduction Liquid loading of as gas well has been described as the inability of the produced gas to remove the Produce Liquids from the wellbore. Advanced search Show search help. Selection, sizing, and operation Plunger lift: This phenomenon has a significantly negative impact on gas well production rate and reservoir pressure due to build up of liquids has the well bore.

Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ In conclusion, a logical artificial lift application selection process for gas well deliquification called the “Unloading Selector??


A high gas velocity results in a mist flow pattern in which liquids are finely dispersed in the gas.

One of the challenging problems deliquifiation gas production is the liquid loading of a deliquificayion well. Gas Lift – GLI. Continuously down-sizing the tubing involves multiple work-over operations, which eventually increases the cost. This paper discusses a new idea of using dielectric heating using microwaves to heat and vaporize the water and hydrocarbons in the wellbore, if present.

The frequency of microwaves in general is MHz; depending on the need, the frequency can be varied. View the Progression Map.

Improved electrical pumps coming onto the market may enhance the effectiveness of the technology. Recognize symptoms of liquid loading in gas wells Critical velocity to analyze wells loading or not Optimize techniques with Nodal Analysis Sizing tubing Compression: This increase of liquids in the tubing adds back pressure on the formation, which in turn reduces flow or even stops flow all together. At this critical point in time, artificial lift is needed which involves either better use of natural energy available at the bottom hole of wellbore gas lift, plunger lift etc.

The course introduces this problem and discusses how to recognize liquid loading as opposed to other possible well problems. The rates that these occur at can generally be estimated by the above mentioned research and then displayed by graph Figure 2.

She has co-authored and edited the book, “Petroleum Well Construction”, and a number of papers related to well completions.

Initially the well has a high gas rate which enables it to carry the produced liquids to the surface. Flow patterns of liquids on the walls of the conduit cause liquid to accumulate in the deliquificatikn of the well, which can either slow or stop gas production altogether.

Proceedings of an International Conference Submersible Technology: The basic concept of tubing design is deliquofication optimize the tubing in such a manner that it should be large enough in diameter which prevents excessive frictional pressure drop but at the same time, small enough, so ggas the velocity is high and liquid loading will not occur.
