TOTAL WELL MANAGEMENT
A Methodology for Maximizing Oil Production and Minimizing Operating Costs.
Paper presented at the SPE Third Annual Symposium -
"The Challenge of Optimizing Operating Costs" Calgary, Alberta,
Canada May 23, 1995
A procedure is described that allows an
operator to identify those beam pumped wells which are capable of
producing more oil and are operating at reduced efficiency. The
logical sequence of steps to be followed in acquiring performance
data such as fluid level, pressure, dynamometer, power, etc. and
the criteria to be used in determining the causes of inefficiency
are presented with the objective of maximizing oil production and
minimizing operating expense.
*The examples shown are acquired and analyzed
using DOS software. Any Well Analyzer using DOS software can be
update to Windows if desired.
