Echometer Well Analyzer Configurations

Thank you for your request for a quotation on the computerized Echometer Well Analyzer.

The Well Analyzer is used to optimize production from oil and gas wells. It is used with an acoustic gas gun and pressure
transducer to acquire acoustic data and casing pressure for determination of liquid level depth and bottomhole pressure.
The Well Analyzer is utilized with dynamometer sensors including a load cell transducer, an accelerometer and a motor
current sensor to analyze the mechanical pumping system. The Well Analyzer is used with the motor power/current
transducer to acquire and analyze motor power and motor current data.

Echometer Well Analyzer Configurations
The Well Analyzer system is very flexible and allows the operator to perform a complete well analysis, or the operator
may elect to acquire the acoustic analysis portion of the instrument now and expand into the dynamometer and power
analysis system at a later date or vice versa.
The following tables summarize the most used configurations of the system depending on the user's requirements:

The Total Well Management System (TWM), illustrated below, is the most complete system for acquisition and
interpretation of;

For pressure transient analysis, the liquid level depth, casing pressure and well data information are processed to obtain
bottomhole pressure. Data plots include casing pressure, liquid level depth and bottomhole pressure versus time.
Diagnostic plots, including Horner, log-log and MDH, are used to monitor the progress of the test. A BHP file is available
for exporting data to other programs for a more rigorous analysis.

For liquid level tracking, the depth to the liquid level is continuously recorded and displayed as a function of time and
compared to high and low liquid level alarm limits to warn the operator of abnormal conditions in the well. Pressure is not
recorded.
Acoustic pressure transient data acquisition and analysis and liquid level tracking measurements are performed
automatically. The operator specifies the shot frequency and the data is acquired automatically while the unit runs
unattended for several hours or days. The acoustic data is processed to determine the distance to the liquid level.

After operator input, the computer activates the Remote Fire Gas Gun to create a pressure pulse that travels through the gas
down the well. Acoustic reflections are detected by the microphone in the gas gun, digitized and stored in the computer.
The TWM software digitally filters the stored signal at the precise collar frequency and automatically counts the number
of collar reflections from the surface to the liquid level and determines the liquid level depth.

Simultaneously, the casing pressure is automatically acquired at 15 second intervals to determine if gas is flowing up the
casing annulus and at what rate gas is flowing up the casing, and to calculate the gradient of the gaseous liquid column
above the pump, if present. The gas-free liquid level, the pump intake pressure and the producing bottomhole
pressure are determined from the analysis of the acquired data. The producing bottomhole pressure and reservoir pressure
are processed using the Vogel IPR or the Productivity Index analysis to present the operator with the producing rate
efficiency and the maximum potential rate of the well. Measurements can be quickly repeated to verify accuracy and
stability of the well condition.

The polished rod transducer (PRT) is designed for easy and safe installation and permits the operator to quickly obtain
surface dynamometer cards, pump cards and standing and traveling valve tests.
After stopping the unit, the operator simply and safely attaches the polished rod transducer to the polished rod in a few
seconds. This highly sensitive transducer outputs a signal indicating change in polished rod diameter caused by the change
in rod load during the pumping cycle and the signal is converted to polished rod load data with a typical accuracy of 3-5%.
All dynamometer load cells include a built-in accelerometer from which the software determines velocity and position of
the polished rod. The TWM program uses the Wave Equation model to convert the polished rod load and position into the
corresponding Pump Dynamometer in order to provide an accurate diagnostic of the operation of the pump, the net pump
displacement and the pump intake pressure.
The Polished Rod transducer houses a small accelerometer for determination of position. Acquiring and processing
acceleration data is a more convenient and reliable technique for determining polished rod position than utilizing the
troublesome, string-type potentiometer.

The 50 KLb transducer is used with a spool assembly that has a 2" tube with end spacers that fits over the polished rod
which allows insertion of the 5" horseshoe load cell and an associated hydraulic jack. A hydraulic pump is used to transfer
the load on the polished rod to the 5" horseshoe transducer. This is a very safe and convenient technique for quickly
installing a horseshoe type load cell. The 5" horseshoe transducer raises the polished rod only 1/8" so the plunger remains
operating in the same portion of the pump barrel.

Using the Well Analyzer to acquire acoustic and pressure signals from a gas gun attached to the tubing, plus pressure
data from an additional pressure transducer attached to the casing can optimize the performance of a plunger lift
installation. At any point in time during the Plunger Lift's operation cycle, both the position and velocity of the plunger
can be accurately determined using this equipment. Monitoring the tubing and casing pressures allows the calculation
of gas and liquid flow rates into and out of the casing and tubing, and also the varying flow rates as a function of
pressure from the reservoir. Plunger trace measurements help to ensure that the plunger will reach the bottom of the
tubing by the end of the shut-in time period so that all of the liquid in the tubing can be lifted to surface during the
plunger unloading cycle. By accurately measuring the plunger fall velocity, the proper shut-in time for the plunger lift
installation can be determined. Setting the well to have the shortest possible shut-in time period to allow the plunger to
fall to bottom will maximize oil and gas production from plunger lift installations.

The TWM Plunger Lift software includes all necessary elements for acquisition and interpretation of the data and
generation of reports and transfer to external databases. Additional information about the Plunger Lift software and
data acquisition can be viewed in the Echometer web page www.echometer.com.
The Well Analyzer Electronics consist of precision sigma-delta analog to digital converters, transducer signal
conditioning circuits and a notebook computer housed in a rugged waterproof briefcase. The analog to digital
converter conditions and converts signals from sensors to digital data that are processed and analyzed by the computer
to present the operator with an analysis of the well's performance.

General Information

Acoustic Pulse Generation for Liquid Level Depth and Reservoir Performance Analysis
The Well Analyzer is generally used with a remote fire gas gun, pressure transducer and acoustic software to acquire
and process acoustic data and casing pressure data to analyze the well's producing rate performance. The remote fire
gas gun (WP=1500psi) is the most commonly supplied gas gun/microphone assembly for use with the Well Analyzer.
In order to obtain pressure transient data, the remote fire gas gun must be utilized. It contains a solenoid that can be
actuated by the Well Analyzer automatically while unattended.

Well Analyzer Computerized Analog to Digital Electronics Package
The Compact Gas Gun (WP=1500psi) and the 5000-psi gas guns (WP=5000psi) are manually fired gas guns. One of
the advantages of these gas guns is that they can be operated in an implosion mode as well as an explosion mode. In the
explosion mode, compressed gas is added to the compact gas gun volume chamber until the pressure in the volume
chamber is in excess of well pressure. In the implosion mode (when the well has a surface pressure in excess of 100
PSI (7 arm.)), gas can be released from the well into the gas gun volume chamber that creates the acoustic pulse. These
guns are especially useful when making measurements in gas-lift or in gas wells. A 5000-PSI (333 atm.)
implosion/explosion gas gun is available for wells with pressures up to 5000 PSI (333 atm.). Please request a quotation
on these gas guns if these gas guns are desired.

The 15,000-psi (1000 atm.) manual implosion gas gun is generally used for measurements in high-pressure gas wells
with pressures from 1500 PSI (100 atm.) to 15,000 PSI (1000 atm.). A 15,000 PSI integral pressure transducer is
available with this gas gun as an option.
LIQUID TRACKING is a software program that is used with the Well Analyzer computerized electronics package to
track the liquid level in a producing well or in a well being drilled. The LIQUID TRACKING software is included in
the Total Well Management System and is available as an option for all of the other systems. A remote fire gas gun is
required for the Liquid Tracking operation.

Dynamometer Load Transducers for Pumping Unit, Rod and Pump Analysis
Three different load transducers are available. Each load transducer has its features. All load transducers house a
reliable and accurate accelerometer. Acceleration data is processed to determine polished rod position.

Electric Motor Performance Analysis
Current Sensor
A motor current sensor is supplied with all dynamometer sensors. The current probe is used to measure instantaneous
motor current throughout the stroke. This permits an analysis of motor loading and proper motor sizing, and an
indication of pumping unit balance. Power and Current Sensor
The power/current transducer measures multi-phase motor voltages and currents. The data is electronically processed
to obtain instantaneous power and current. This data is analyzed to determine overall electrical efficiency, balance and
torque.

Rod Pump Predictive Software
For enhanced analysis of rod pumping systems, a rod system design software package is useful to fully evaluate the
pumping system.

QROD
A user-friendly, predictive, wave equation beam pump modeling software program is supplied with the TWM
software and is downloadable (free of charge) from the Echometer web page. The program only requires selection of
"generic" pumping units that are modeled from "average" pumping units and API rod strings. This is a very popular
and useful program.

EchoPUMP
A comprehensive predictive program "EchoPUMP" is a cost-effective option. This predictive program reads
Echometer well fdes and data. Thus, the measured polished rod loads can be compared to predicted polished rod
loadings. The operator can change parameters such as pump size, stroke length, rod sizes, strokes per minute and other
variables, and then predict the performance of the pumping system. This program is very useful for studying the
performance of a pumping system when a parameter such as pumping speed is changed. The program also allows the
selection of the proper equipment for a particular well depending upon its depth, fluid characteristics, reservoir
performance and other factors. The program is valuable for determining and understanding the performance of a beam
pumped system.

Plunger Lift Analysis
Plunger lift analysis is available for determining plunger movement and location, evaluating well productivity, and
determining optimum cycle times. See the web for an article on plunger lift analysis.

Operating Manual
A complete operating manual is supplied with all of the equipment. A CD with videos, FAQ's and Help is also supplied
with the equipment.

Web Site Information
A copy of the operating manual and additional information about the Well Analyzer can be obtained from the
Echometer web page at the following address www.echometer.com. or a CD with the same information can be mailed
to you upon request.
