First, calculate the liquid inflow per cycle. 2. Determine the gas pressure in the annulus opposite the operating valve, with a known surface pressure of 800 psi, and an estimated gas gradient of 0.02125 psi/ft. The gas pressure at the operating valve is pc = 800 + 0.02125 (8000) = 970 psi. Using a 65 percent load factor, find p p pt p = pt - pts = 0.65 pc = 0.65 (970) = 630 psi = 630 - 100 = 530 psi.

With this pressure, the produced fluid should rise in the tubing to a total height of:

This is equivalent to a fluid inflow volume of: Ftb Be = 0.0038 bbl/ft (from tubing tables or calculations) = hFtb =(1325) (0.0038) = 5.03 bbls.

3. Next, calculate the lift efficiency. For a depth of 8000 feet and an assumed 5% holdup per 1000 ft, the efficiency, E, is

With a lift efficiency of 60%, the fluid production per cycle is: Bt = 0.60 (5.03) = 3.02 bbls/cycle. 4. Next, calculate the maximum number of cycles possible per day. For a gas lift operating valve located at a depth of 8000 feet, it is equal to:

5. Complete the calculations by combining the production per cycle and the maximum number of cycles per day to find a maximum production rate of: q = NcBt = (60) (3.02) = 180 B/D. If the inflow performance calculations for this well show that the well will sustain this rate, it is very likely a good design. However, some degree of field adjustment will probably be required.

VALVE SELECTION

The primary requirement of an operating valve used in intermittent lift is to be able to handle a large volume of gas over a short time period. This is an ideal application for the pilot-operated valve. Its large port allows a large volume of gas to pass once the valve is opened. A properly designed dome-charged valve, or a fluid-operated valve, could also be used. However, because the port of a fluid-operated valve is small, a series of operating valves, opening in succession, would be required to move the slug up the tubing.Required Gas VolumesTwo-phase slug flow is a complex phenomenon, and as such, it is difficult to calculate the exact gas volumes required during an intermittent cycle. For estimation purposes, we may

assume that the required volume equals the volume of gas left in the tubing at the moment that the slug reaches the surface, and that the pressure of the gas in the tubing is equal to the average of the two values of tubing pressure when the valve opens and closes.The basic gas volume required per cycle is equal to:

where: pt = pressure at the operating valve; pvc = the pressure just as the valve closes; Vt = the volume of tubing not occupied by fluid, and; pa = atmospheric pressure (used to convert gas volume in the tubing to standard conditions), in this example, 14.73 psia. This estimate is approximate, and does not include the effects of temperature and compressibility.) For example, continuing with the Sample Problem from above, and given the following information for this 180 B/D well,

Valve opening pressure is 970 psi Valve closing pressure is 725 psi Tubing length is 8000 feet; capacity = 0.0217 cubic feet per foot. Fluid fills 1325 feet of the tubing. The tubing gas volume is V t = (8000 - 1325) (0.0217) = 144.8 cu. ft.

We can estimate the gas volume per cycle as follows (converting to standard cubic feet of gas in the tubing at the average pressure):

This agrees with a common rule-of-thumb whereby the injection gas requirement can be approximated as 200-400 SCF/Bbl per 1000 ft of lift for a well on conventional intermittent lift (Winkler and Smith, 1962):

This gas must be conserved and reused in subsequent cycles to create an efficient production operation.

The gas lift valve controls the flow of gas from the casing to the tubing. Surface controllers, which may be actuated on a time-cycle or by a choke, complement the subsurface valve control function. With time-cycle control, a clock drives a pilot that opens and closes a diaphragm-actuated valve on the gas supply line. The pilot can be adjusted to open and close for specific time periods. The choke control uses the inflow performance of the well and the operating spread characteristics of the gas lift valve to control the cycle. The surface equipment consists of an adjustable choke or flow control valve on the gas supply line. The choke is adjusted to admit gas continuously into the annulus so that its pressure builds at a steady rate.
