The article describes pilot tests, concerning with the automatic process control system of the noncompressor gaslift, carried out by Gazpromneft-Orenburg. The goal of the project is to increase the efficiency and the well control.
Materials and methods
The article includes the description of the noncompressor gaslift service problems, details of the automatic process control system ofthe noncompressor gaslift implementation, the analysis of the results. There is also thedescription of the steps for the implementation ofthe permanent monitoring system.
Two producer wells at work were chosen for tests.
Summarizing the results, all the goals for the automatic process control system Gaslift were reached during pilot tests. In fact, it became possible to increase the efficiency of well tests for the Orenburgskoe oil and gas condensate fields; new technologies of gaslift wells monitoring were proposed.
The implementation of the automatic process control system Gaslift is planned at the rest wells of the Orenburgskoe oil and gas condensate field; it can give the opportunity to improve gaslift working efficiency, to provide data capturing on areal-time basis, to improve decision making and certainly to provide the reductionof risks and the labor safety for the staff of Gazpromneft-Orenburg.
