Surface Velocity Optimization Now Available to Operators With Plunger Lift Wells, Improving Oil and Gas Well Production Worldwide

Share Article

ETC has officially released new plunger lift controller software with support for Surface Velocity optimization for oil and gas well production. The release of the long-awaited Sasquatch plunger velocity sensor enables producers to use this innovative new optimization method to improve oil and gas well production throughout North America.

As the first ever plunger velocity sensor, Sasquatch was designed to record surface velocity and kinetic energy of the plunger in addition to signaling its arrival.

ETC's patent-pending velocity optimization algorithm makes adjustments that are proportional to the current flow/close time.

Extreme Telematics Corp., experts in advanced technology for the oilfield, is proud to present a new firmware release for ETC plunger lift controllers. Version 2.0.0 can be downloaded and installed quickly and easily using ETC Vision Device Management Software and features exciting advancements for optimizing oil and gas well production using surface velocity with the Sasquatch plunger velocity sensor.

Some of the latest enhancements include:

-Logging of Surface Velocity and Average Velocity; Compare Average Velocity with Surface Velocity for past cycles.
-Display Surface Velocity in status screen; Quick & easy viewing of the Surface Velocity of the last plunger arrival. If you witness a fast arrival while on site you can quickly check the Surface Velocity.
-Fast Trip and Danger Trip using Surface Velocity; Automatically shut in your well when the plunger is travelling too fast at surface.
-Optimization using Surface Velocity; Surface Velocity provides the most accurate information for optimizing oil and gas well production. Adjust open and close times for plungers arriving too fast or slow.
-Modbus over TCP Server added to simulator; Allows for faster and easier SCADA integration.

In addition to these new features, our patent-pending velocity optimization algorithm, which makes adjustments that are proportional to the current flow/close time, is now the default optimization method. This Current Time Velocity Optimization was used with average plunger velocity to double gas well production in a recent case study.
