Artificial lift PCM

PCM Vulcain™-Vollmetall-PCP im SAGD-Einsatz in Kanada

All-metal PCP SAGD pilot in Canada

Fallbiespiele - PCP im SAGD-Einstatz in Kanada

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

JOSLYN: Field (Pilot) development in thermal enhanced oil recovery.

First field pilot using  PCP for SAGD production (Steam assisted Oil Gravity).

Successful trial  conducting on 11 of 12 Wells equipped with AMPCP technology

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

  • Tripled bitumen production compared to ESP (20m3/d to more than 60m3/d)
  • Doubled run life compare to ESP (more than one year)
  • PCM Vulcain™ proved its versatility: from  50 to 150 m3/d, from 60 to 150°C at high efficiency.

CHALLENGE

  • 150°C at pump intake
  • Shallow wells
  • Field trial on new  technology
