Session 8 July 8 2020 Troubleshoot and Analyze Sucker Rod Wells Using Reference Load Lines and Pressure Annotations

Session 8 Pump cards have three load reference lines 1) Zero Load line, 2) Fluid Load line from Fluid Level, Fo, calculated using the pump intake pressure determined from an acoustic Fluid Level measurement, and 3) Maximum Fluid Load, Fo max, line calculated by setting the pump intake pressure equal to zero. Certain downhole pump problems can be recognized based on the location of the pump card loads with respect to the three load reference lines. When there is no apparent pump action the load value of the flat pump card can be used to determine if there is 1) a shallow rod part, 2) a deep rod part or traveling valve, TV, is stuck open, 3) Tubing is dry of well fluids, 4) the standing valve, SV, is stuck open or 5) the SV is stuck closed with no fluid is entering the pump. Typical pump card loads plot near zero load line on the down stroke and the loads plot near Fo from Fluid Level load line on the upstroke.  Presented by  Lynn Rowlan.

Session 7 July 1 2020 Acoustic Fluid Levels to Analyze and Troubleshoot Gas Wells

Session 7 Examples of acoustic tests are presented, where the test are performed on shut-in or flowing above or below critical flow rate gas wells with or without surfactant treatments acquired down the tubing or the tubing/casing annulus.  Techniques for acoustic liquid level analysis are discussed for gas wells where unusual conditions exist such as very shallow liquid levels, very deep liquid levels, noisy wells, high bottomhole temperature, and low or high surface pressures. Presented by  Lynn Rowlan.

Session 6 June 24 2020 How Much Liquid Does My Sucker Rod Pump Pump?

Session 6 Lynn explains how gas interference and pump slippage is used to adjust the effective plunger stroke to deterine the amount of stock tank liquid contained in one pump stroke.  Presented by  Lynn Rowlan.
