Camcon Oil’s APOLLO Artificial Lift Solution Delivers Significant Oil Production Increases in Comparison to Conventional Gas Lift Equipment, New Report Finds


Camcon Oil’s APOLLO digital intelligent artificial lift solution can deliver as much as 1,000 BOPD (Barrels of Oil per Day) more oil production from a typical well and, in one scenario, a 110% increase in production compared to traditional gas lift equipment.

These were the findings of a recent report by production technology consultants, Laing Engineering Training Services (LETS), who evaluated a number of different gas lift solutions at various stages of the productive lifecycle based on a typical subsea well scenario.


Increased production rates

The report found that APOLLO, part of Camcon’s Digital Intelligent Artificial Lift (DIAL) solutions, led to increased production rates and offered much greater flexibility than conventional gas lift equipment based on wireline retrievable valves and side pocket mandrels. This was due to the APOLLO’s ability to set real-time injection rates in response to changing reservoir conditions over the life of the well.

When assessing the APOLLO units under a number of life cycle well scenarios – from one day to three years – APOLLO’s ability to move injection depth up and down the well in response to changes in well production characteristics, such as reservoir pressure and water cut, was clearly seen to yield increased production with, at times, incremental production of over 1,000 BOPD. With higher casing head pressure and higher gas injection rates, the APOLLO units delivered even greater incremental production - all without the well intervention required with traditional gas lift equipment.

“Our simulation modeling clearly demonstrates the limitations of conventional gas lift solutions where the implicit design assumption is that the well will operate within specific reservoir pressures, flow and water cut parameters and that any changes can easily be accommodated by simple wireline intervention to change out gas lift valves,” said Cameron Laing, Managing Director of LETS and author of the report.
