OPT - Gas Well Optimization
Taking advantage of the capabilities of the existing flow computer (RTU) and on-site I/O saves our customers thousands in hardware costs.
Outlaw Automation believes poor production due to declining pressure in older wells or constant variations in liquid loading identifies a need for gas well optimization.
The Gas Well Optimization Program provides solutions from simple timers to complete artificial lift and self-optimizing routines. It offers a number of different control modes designed to achieve an increase in production volumes. The multiple control modes are user-selectable within one program, keeping programming and re-programming costs to a minimum.
Depending on the mode selected, control functions utilize timers, gas flow rate, well pressure, plunger arrival data or a combination of methods to achieve results.
A typical multiple-mode optimization routine would contain the following sub-routines as a minimum:
- Production time on vs. production time off (timer)
- Critical flow vs. time off
- Critical flow vs. casing - tubing differential pressure
- Casing - tubing differential pressure vs. time off
- Critical flow vs. casing pressure
- Load factor
- Self optimization
ICScada HMI is pre-built to incorporate all our Gas Well Optimization programs.
We can also provide complete register lists to our customers for easy HMI system integration on other HMI systems.
Taking advantage of the capabilities of the existing flow computer (RTU) and on-site I/O saves our customers thousands in hardware costs when compared to pneumatic systems and provides the results our customers are looking for. Many control methods do not require expensive plunger and additional I/O equipment to achieve results.
Site installation/authorization can be done by Operations or 3rd party contractors who posses RTU knowledge or through the Outlaw Automation support group. (1-866-408-5001)
