Typical Gas-Lift Surveillance Processes Vendor-Driven Predominant at Unocal Unocal delegates design and surveillance Results in unknown optimization level Operator Staff-Driven Engineer Part-Time Work typically prioritized downward Technician Full-Time Optimum results
Typical Gas-Lift Surveillance Processes Vendor-Driven Timetable driven surveillance Engineering staff typically uninformed about key design and operation parameters Operators not fully aware of these parameters
Surveillance Program - 2001 Results Previous program well turnaround = 60 days Current process = 2 days Average production deferment = 50 bopd Deferred yearly program revenue = $480,000
Conclusions Gas lift completions require continuous surveillance to yield optimum returns Web-based technology is available to systematically change current surveillance This technology requires key staff understand their key performance / design parameters
