Successful trials of thrust chamber as part of PCP in JSC “Lukoil – Komi” fields
JSC “Lukoil - Komi” is the largest production company in North Western Federal District, which operates in Komi Republic (Nenets Autonomous Area). Company attaches great importance to innovations and advanced technologies for oil and gas production. Particularly, numerous trials of latest equipment are performed in Usinsk field “Lukoil - Usinskneftegas” (JSC “Lukoil - Komi” subsidiary).
PCP with submersible drive allows to produce oil effectively in wells with low inflow, high viscosity, a lot of solids. This PCP compare to standard PCP with surface rod drive and can operate in deep, deviated and horizontal wells.
The trials of Novomet 406 series thrust chamber were successfully finished in the end of July in the wells #2758 and #2821 of Usinskii field. The 406 series thrust chamber allows to compensate the axial load up to 5 tons during operation of PCP with submersible drive.
Fails haven’t been fixed during under-control operations. All required criteria were met, the trial was considered successful. Equipment was recommended for operations in JSC “Lukoil - Komi” fields.
