Utilizing a well's own energy
to cost-effectively remove liquids.
During their natural lives, most gas wells experience some type of liquid loading, when water and oil accumulate in the tubing and well bore. As the volume of those liquids increases and the well loses energy, it has a harder time removing them.
When this occurs, artificial lift is needed to remove the liquids and extend the life of the well. To optimize production of marginal and aging wells, you need an affordable, effective and easy-to-use means of artificial lift.
When plunger lift is the right choice.
Plunger lift is most effective and economical in wells with specific characteristics, namely low bottom hole pressure, high gas-to-liquid ratio and production of roughly 130 barrels per day or less. In this environment, plunger lift ensures optimal production in a number of ways, including:
Removing accumulated liquids in gas wells,
allowing them to produce
Minimizing shut-ins and blowing to the atmosphere
Providing an alternative to soaping
Controlling paraffin and hydrate buildup
Increasing efficiency of Opti-Flow gas lift systems
Extending the life of the well
Lowering operating and maintenance costs
You need PCS Ferguson Plunger Lift.
A plunger lift system is one of the most cost-effective methods of deliquification and offers a number of benefits:
Maximum production with minimal cost
Quick and easy implementation
Simple operation and no energy source required
Broad selection of equipment addressing a variety of conditions
PCS Multi-Stage Tool:
The Next Evolution
of Plunger Lift
In a particularly deep well or a well with low gas and high liquids (low GLR), the multi-stage tool can create multiple plunger lift systems in one well. By lifting the liquid load in stages, the well is able to more efficiently utilize its own energy to remove fluids.
