Oil and Gas Upgrades

Artificial Lift

Rod lift systems are a critical component of the Artificial Lift. This technology is simple but can be an inefficient form of energy transfer, with system efficiency as low as 10%*. PSO can help you find more energy efficient ways to bring your oil to the surface without compromising your production. These methods include:

  • Pump Off Controllers
  • Variable Frequency Drives
  • Progressive Capacity Pumps
  • Electric Submersible Pumps (ESP)

Note: *Dependent on system and equipment conditions.

Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs)

VFDs deliver precise control over the speed of the motor to match a given load, reducing wear and saving energy.
Benefits:

  • Annual energy savings of 60,000 — 100,000 kWh
  • PSO rebates of up to 75% installation costs
  • Simple payback in as little as 1-2 years
  • Reduced wear on the pump system/rod string
  • Minimal downtime for installation
  • Less downtime for maintenance/workover
  • Wide range of applications, including:
    • Rod beam pumps
    • Surface pumps
    • Compressors
    • Electric Submersible Pumps (ESP)

Note: Based on previously implemented projects data – actual results may vary.

Injection Pumps

Most oil producers need to inject fluid back into the ground from produced water, saltwater disposal, or water flooding. Inefficient systems not only waste energy but reduce the life of the equipment. Let PSO help you find the most energy efficient way to inject your fluids downhole and save your business money in the process. Here are a few examples that can bring very sizable savings:

Pump-Off Controllers (POCs)

Pump off controllers provide better control of the operating profile for rod lift systems, so your pump can operate more efficiently and with less wear on the system. A POC can help optimize run times and prolong the life of your equipment.

Benefits:

  • Average energy savings of 1,350 kWh/HP
  • PSO rebates of up to 75% installation costs
  • Simple payback in as little as 2 years
  • Reduced wear on the pump system/rod string
  • Minimal downtime

Note: Based on previously implemented projects data – actual results may vary.

High-Efficiency Electric Submersible Pumps (HE ESPs)

HE ESPs improve pumping efficiency, resulting in lower energy use and increased fluid production rate.

  • Average energy savings of 0.44 kWh/bbl produced
  • PSO rebates of up to 75% installation costs
  • Simple payback in as little as 2 years
  • Prolongs life of equipment due to less wear on the pump itself

Note: Based on previously implemented projects data – actual results may vary.
