Permian Basin: Using hydraulic jet pumps as an economic alternative to ESP's

Due to the rapidly declining life cycle of horizontal Shale wells, the use of ESPs as a long-term lift solution, when compared to the overall production cycle, can present numerous challenges to an operator. Because of the short-term use and expense tied to ESPs, Weatherford has explored various ESP replacement technologies with the goals of lowering OPEX, and increasing run life and reliability. Hydraulic Jet Lift in the Permian basin is replacing ESPs and problematic Rod Lift wells due to high deviation and wear. This high-level discussion will give an overview of Hydraulic Jet Pump Systems, case histories in problematic wells, and outline the overall decisions made to utilize Hydraulic Jet Lift based on run life and reduced OPEX expenses.
