Plunger Lift Monitoring – Alberta Oil and Gas Optimization from Surface Solutions Inc.
Plunger lift is a low cost method of unloading liquids without interrupting production for long periods of time. Holes in tubing, wax formation, and non-arrivals can be addressed instantly utilizing SSI’s PLET services. SSI can monitor a complete plunger lift cycle which can detect wear on the plunger, leaking or missing standing valves and adjusting to shut-in or after-flow times. Plunger lift evaluation tests can also help support the piping changes recommended by the plunger lift provider. Surface Solutions Inc. can answer critical questions concerning plunger location, fall velocity, fluid level, pressures, valve requirements, bottom hole pressure, plunger fall restrictions, and more. Our plunder testing captures acoustic and pressure data from tubing and casing throughout a plunger lift cycle. By monitoring a complete cycle, SSI can determine plunger wear, leaking or missing standing valves, and necessary adjustments to shut-in or after-flow times. Plunger lift evaluation testing should be part of any routine maintenance program.
