CHANGES IN PRODUCTION PROFILE 29.04.2011

CHANGES IN PRODUCTION PROFILE

Over time, production changes. Along the way, you apply various technologies to increase production beyond what nature would otherwise provide, e.g., water flooding, fracturing, artificial lift, etc. Ultimately, the geology of each oil reservoir decides what can be practically produced, but the production profile can be strongly influenced by your decisions.  


Cameron has a breadth of equipment designed to help you manage your processes through the changing production profile.

For example, water flooding means you need to control scaling and prevent reservoir souring. Better sulfate removal technology can help solve the problem at the source, allowing increased productivity and lower operating costs. Removing sulfate before injection reduces the potential for barium and strontium sulfate scaling and helps to prevent reservoir souring. – reducing the risk of lost or deferred production.

As producing wells change, the presence of sand in well fluids also becomes a serious threat to equipment. Throughout the production chain, equipment is at risk for mechanical damage, erosion, plugging, and reduced capacity. But desanding at the wellstream is considerably more difficult than desanding produced waters, with high pressures, slugging three-phase flow, and widely varying conditions. However, we design our solutions with proprietary internals for maximum resistance to wear, higher solids removal capability, and robust life. The compact designs also minimize weight and space for offshore applications.
