Get rid of ESPs. For good. High-Pressure Gas Lift (HPGL) is replacing ESPs across North America—delivering significant savings in the maintenance costs associated with ESP failures and workover repairs.
With HPGL, gas is compressed at the surface to 5,000+ psi and injected through the production tubing, allowing for deeper injection depth. This high-pressure gas lightens the density of the fluid column, lowering bottom-hole pressure and improving production. Injecting directly into the production tubing allows fluid to produce through the annulus for increased flow area, while eliminating the need for packers.
High-Pressure Gas Lift keeps all artificial lift components at the surface—simplifying ongoing system maintenance and potentially fractionalizing both maintenance costs and downtime throughout the life of the well.
This is particularly true in wells with:
- Sandy formations
- Horizontal doglegs or wellbore deviation
- High GOR ratios
- High initial production rates
- Steep production declines
It’s not often we see industry-wide consensus on a better, more cost-effective way to do something. But with hundreds of units in the field and more orders coming daily, operators nationwide are saving millions from HPGL in every major basin as an alternative to failure-prone ESPs.
And we’re proud to help make these efficiencies happen during a time when the industry needs them most.
