Liquid Loading and Plunger Lift Technology - February 2015

Technical presentation on Liquid Loading and Plunger lift technology, presented by David Green, VP and CTO, Well Master Corp, USA, on Feb 5, 2015 at the Tattersalls  Club, Brisbane.

Featured issues:

  • Bottom hole pressure management – critical role in achieving consistent gas flow
  • Gas wells as pneumatic systems and oil wells as hydraulic systems
  • Liquid loading – how height of liquid column affects production
  • Water flow in tubing – behaviour of droplets and annular mist explained by flow dynamics
  • Onset of liquid loading – using J curve to predict liquid loading with high accuracy
  • Plunger lift – principles, application.
  • Plunger selection – the life cycle approach to well optimization.
  • Horizontal and inclined wells – different from vertical wells. Using specially designed plungers for these applications.
  • Field well data analysis
