Automating the Routine with Essential Well Management (EWM) for Stripper Wells

Situation

Artificial lift optimization is one of the core activities Production Engineers and Techs are asked to perform on a daily basis. Rod lift is the most widely used artificial lift type, deployed on horizontal and vertical wells alike. Due to the widespread use of rod pumps, consistent best practices have been established over time. When those operational best practices are adhered to, meaningful increases in field profitability of even the lowest producing wells have followed.

Despite their differences in the horizontal development and vertical legacy well context, industry best practices to optimize rod lift around efficiency, and thus profitability, have a consistent logic and methodology. First, wells are diagnosed as underpumping, dialed in, or overpumping. Second, based on the categorical classification, a consistent remediation workflow is applied based on the available levers to pull that either increase production or lower the number of damaging strokes into the system.
