Built to Optimize ™
Plunger lift solutions are widely used and are the most economical method of artificial lift. Plunger Lift uses the well’s natural gas, energy, or gas injection to seal around the plunger and eliminates liquid fallback. This artificial lift method of continually unloading liquids in the tubing string optimizes oil and gas production. When you add automation to a plunger lift system, you gain true supervisory control and remote monitoring capabilities to your lift system.
Plunger lift is typically used in high gas/liquid ratio (GLR) wells and is versatile enough to be used in lower GLR wells with recent advances in technology. As with other artificial lift methods, the purpose of plunger lift is to remove liquids from the wellbore so that the well can be produced at the lowest bottomhole pressure and maximum flowing potential. A plunger lift system relies on the gas/liquid ratio to lift liquids to the surface. There are many variations of plunger types based on well production and conditions.
Alternatively, one can optimize production with a combination of lift methods, such as adding continuous gas lift to a continuous flow plunger system. See hybrid solutions for more details.
