PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The Client has implemented an aggressive drilling and development program, including a major pattern steam flood project for enhanced oil recovery.

The 2010 exit rate of gross daily oil production at the field was nearly 120,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

The Client plans to steadily increase production through continued expansion of the steam flood project.

FOCUS ON PRODUCT

PCM Vulcain™ is a patented All Metal artificial lift progressing cavity pump (PCP) capable  of pumping extremely hot fluids (350°C/660°F). It has been widely used in various steam assisted recovery processes (SAGD, CSS, Steam Flood), providing all intrinsic PCP benefits (steady & efficient production, flexibility, lower life cycle cost) at high temperature.

BENEFITS

  • All Metal PCP continuously running for 2 years
  • More than 900,000 barrels in 2 years
  • 1 stop for drivehead maintenance

CHALLENGES

  • Pump head: 80 bar Setting depth: 2930 ft
  • Hole angle: 64°
  • Water Cut: 38% to 80%
