A computer program has been written to perform production
optimization in submersible pump lifted wells. Production optimization was
achieved by the principles of Nodal Analysis Technique which was applied
between the reservoir and the wellhead ignoring the surface choke and
separator. Computer program has been written according to two lifting
environment, which are: pumping with only liquid and pumping with both
liquid and gas. Program played an important role in the study by overcoming
difficult iterations existing in the pumping liquid and gas case due to
variation of liquid volume between pump intake and discharge pressure.
Hagedorn and Brown vertical multiphase flow correlation was utilized in the
program to determine the pressure at required depth. However, Griffith
Correlation was also used in the program since Hagedorn and Brown
Correlation failed to give accurate results at bubble flow.
iv
A case study was done by evaluating the 10 wells located in
Diyarbakır-GK field which are all submersible pump lifted. Well, reservoir,
fluid and lift-system data was transferred to already written computer
program. Output of the computer program for both cases was used to
calculate accurately the optimum production rates, required horsepower,
number of pump stages and the relation between these parameters with
each other. The sensitivity variable selected is the number of pump stages.
At the end of the study, by comparing the actual operating data and the
computer-based optimized data, it was observed that 3 wells: W-16, W-17,
and W-24 were producing completely within their optimum range, 5 wells:
W-07, W-08, W-25, W-27 and W-28 were not producing at their optimum
range but their production parameters can said to be acceptable , 1 well: W-
22 was producing inefficiently and should be re-designed to reach optimum
conditions. It was realized that W-15 has insufficient data to make
necessary interpretations.

Keywords: Production optimization, nodal system analysis technique,
electrical submersible pump, artificial lift, Hagedorn and Brown correlation,

Dalgıç pompalarla üretim yapılan kuyuların optimizasyonu için
bilgisayar programı yazılmıştır. Üretim optimizasyonu Nodal Analizi
Tekniğiyle gerçekleştirilmiş ve rezervuar ile kuyubaşı arasında, kuyubaşı
sonrası yüzey donanımı ve separatör dikkate alınmadan uygulanmıştır.
Program iki üretim ortamına göre yazılmıştır, bunlar: sadece sıvı ile hem sıvı
hem gaz üretim ortamlarıdır. Bu bilgisayar programı, sözü edilen sıvı ile gaz
pompalanması sırasındaki pompa emiş ve çıkış basıncı arasında sistemdeki
gaz’dan dolayı oluşan sıvı hacmi değişimlerinin hesaplamasında ortaya
çıkan iterasyonların çözümü açısından önemli bir rol oynamaktadır.
Programda istenilen derinlikteki basınç değerlerini hesaplamak amacıyla
Hagedorn ve Brown korelasyonu kullanılmıştır. Hagedorn ve Brown
Korelasyonunun yetersiz kaldığı akış rejimlerinde Griffith Korelasyonu
kullanılarak sonuca ulaşılmıştır.
vi
Yazılan bu programın pratiğe geçirilmesi açısından Diyarbakır – GK
sahasındaki dalgıç pompalarla üretim yapılan 10 kuyu incelemeye
alınmıştır. Bu kuyuların rezervuar, akışkan ve üretim verileri hazır olan
bilgisayar programına aktarılmıştır. Daha önce belirtilen iki pompalama
ortamını kapsayan bu programın çıktısı optimum üretim debisi, gereken
beygirgücü ve pompa kademe sayısının belirlenmesi için kullanılmıştır. Bu
hesaplamalarda hassas değişken olarak pompa kademe sayısı seçilmiştir.
Çalışmanın sonunda GK sahası verileri ile programdan çıkarılan optimize
değerler karşılaştırılmış ve dalgıç pompalarla üretim yapılan 10 kuyudan
3’ünün: W-16, W-17, ve W-24’ün optimum değer sınırları içerisinde üretim
yaptığı, kuyulardan 5’inin W-07, W-08, W-25, W-27, W-28, optimum
değerler içerisinde olmasa bile kabul edilebilir ve geçerli sayılabilir
sınırlarda üretim yaptığı, 1 kuyunun, W-22, optimum sınırlar dışında ve
verimsiz bir şekilde üretime devam ettirildiği saptanmıştır. W-15’in verileri
herhangi bir yorum yapmak için yetersiz kalmıştır.

CHAPTER I

INTRODUCTION

The electrical submersible pumping system can said to be an
attractive artificial lift technique in reservoirs having high water-cut and low
gas-oil ratio. Currently, it is considered as an effective and economical
means of lifting large volumes of fluid from great depths under a variety of
well conditions. Pumping equipment is capable of producing as high as
60,000 b/d and as low as 200 b/d. The oil cut may also vary within very wide
limits, from negligible amounts to 100 %. The pump performs at highest
efficiency when pumping liquid only; it can handle free gas with the liquid
but high volumes of free gas causes inefficient operation and gas lock
problems. The first submersible pumping unit was installed in an oil well in
1928 and since that time the concept has proven itself throughout the oil-
producing world
1
. A submersible pumping unit consists of an electric motor,
a seal section, an intake section, a multistage centrifugal pump, an electric
cable, a surface installed switchboard, a junction box and transformers.
Additional miscellaneous components also present in order to secure the
cable alongside the tubing and wellhead supports. Pressure sentry for
sensing bottom-hole pressure, check and bleeder valves are the optional
equipment that can be taken into consideration. Under normal operating
conditions, submersible pumping unit can be expected to give from 1 to 3
years of good operating life with some units operating over 10 years.
Despite this advantage, many submersible pump lifted oil and gas wells
produce at rates different than optimum. This fact makes necessary to apply
production optimization techniques to wells having low production rates.
Nodal Analysis has been applied to artificial lift method for many years to
2
analyze the performance of the systems composed of interacting
components. It is a process of determining the effect of each component in
the production system on the total system performance. The analysis can
improve the completion design, well productivity and producing efficiency,
all of which lead to increased profitability from oil and gas investments. The
Nodal analysis technique is essentially a simulator of the producing well
system. The system includes all flow between the reservoir and the
separator. As the entire system is simulated, each of the components is
modelled using various correlations or equations to determine the pressure
loss through that component as a function of flow rate. The summation of
these individual losses make up the total pressure loss through the entire
system for a given flow rate. The production rate or deliverability of a well
can be severely restricted by the poor performance of just one component in
the system. If the effect of each component on the performance of the total
system can be isolated, the efficiency of the system can be optimized in the
most economical way. When performing a Nodal analysis, we divide the
production system into its components, i.e., reservoir, perforations, tubing,
surface choke, flowline and separator. Then we pick a problem area in this
production system as a node. This node acts as the intersection point
between the inflow and outflow performances. Different inflow and outflow
performance curves intersect on the same plot and give the design
considerations for different arrangements
2
. Optimization and design of
submersible pump lifted wells pumping only liquid are generally straight-
forward however pumping gas with the liquid is complicated because of the
high compressibility of gas. In this case, volume of the produced fluid rate
shows a significant variation between the pump intake and discharge
pressures, consequently considerable amount of iterations should be
performed to determine the volume factor at any pressure between the
intake and discharge pressures. Thus, computer program should be written
to overcome these iterations. Optimization of wells with Nodal Analysis
requires pressure gradient correlation in order to reach a solution so it is
3
necessary to use a vertical multiphase flow correlation method in the
computer program. In this study, Hagedorn and Brown vertical multiphase
flow correlation
3
has been used to determine the pressure and pressure
losses at required depth. However, during the study it was observed that
Hagedorn and Brown Correlation failed to give accurate output at bubble
flow. Thus, Griffith Correlation
4
was constructed at bubble flow to obtain
accurate results.
The purpose of this study was to write a general computer program
that gives simultaneously the possible production rates for submersible
pump lifted wells and also the optimum required horsepower and number of
pump stages at these possible rates both considering pumping liquid and
pumping gas with liquid. In addition to that objective, comparison made by
using the production data of wells located in the GK field will assist us in
suggesting optimum pump operating conditions.

CHAPTER II

ELECTRICAL SUBMERSIBLE PUMPS

2.1 Introduction

Many high volume wells are equipped with electric submersible pumps
(ESP) to lift the liquid and decrease the flowing bottom hole pressure. A
submersible pump is a multistage centrifugal pump that is driven by an
electric motor located in the well below the pump. Electrical power is
supplied by means of a cable from the surface.
The pump and motor are suspended on the tubing at a certain depth in
the well. The annulus is either vented or tied into the well’s flowline, so that
as much gas as possible is separated from the liquid before it enters the
pump. In some cases, a centrifugal separator will be placed between the
pump and motor for obtaining maximum gas-liquid separation. A typical
submersible pump installation is given in Figure 2.1. A schematic of a well
equipped with a submersible pump is given in Figure 2.2, along with the
pressure traverse in the well. From the figure it can be seen that, initially,
flowing pressure of submersible pump lifted well is not sufficient to lift the
fluid (depleted well). This insufficient pressure (P
up
) which we define as
intake pressure starts to increase at pump setting depth by required pump
stages and finally reaches to discharge pressure (P
dn
) generated by the
pump which will assist fluid to flow throughout the surface. Figure 2.3 is a
typical pressure traverses for pump on bottom. Discharge pressure of the
pump will be defined as P
2
, and also intake pressure will be defined as P
3

throughout the study. From figure, the effective lift point is that depth at
5
which the flowing bottomhole pressure is capable of supporting the fluids in
the tubing string.
The pump performs highest efficiency when pumping liquid only. It can
and does handle free gas along with the liquid. The manner in which the
pump handle gas is not completely understood; however high volumes of
free gas are known to cause inefficient operation.

2.2 Pump Performance Curves

Pumps are divided into groups according to the minimum casing size
into which the pump can be run. But even within the same group, each
pump performs differently. A typical pump performance curve
5
is given in
Figure 2.4.
The performance curves of a submersible electrical pump represent the
variation of head, horsepower, and efficiency with capacity. Capacity refers
to the volume of the produced flow rate, which may include free and/or
dissolved gas. These curves are for a fixed power cycle – normally 50 or 60
cycle – and can be changed with variable frequency controllers

The head (in feet per stage) developed by a centrifugal pump is the
same regardless of the type or specific gravity of the fluid pumped. But
when converting this head to pressure, it must be multiplied by the gradient
of the fluid in question. Therefore, the following can be stated:

Pressure developed by pump = head per stage × gradient of fluid ×
number of stages

When pumping gas with the liquid, the capacity and, consequently, the
head per stage as well as the gradient vary as the pressure of the liquid
elevated from the intake value P
3
to the discharge value P
2.
Thus, the above
equation can be written as follows
6

where:
dP = the differential pressure developed by the pump, psi

The pump performance curves give the horsepower per stage based on
a fluid specific gravity equal to 1.0. This horsepower must be multiplied by
the specific gravity of the fluid under consideration. Thus the following can
be stated:

(horsepower requirements) = (horsepower per stage) × (specific gravity of
fluid) × (number of stages)

Since the horsepower per stage, the specific gravity of fluid, and the
number of stages depend on the capacity V, which varies between the
intake and the discharge pressures, the above equation can be written as
follows:

For each pump, there is a capacity range within which the pump
performs at or near its peak efficency. The volume range of the selected
rate between the intake and the discharge pressures should, therefore,
remain within the efficiency range of the pump. This range, of course, can
be changed by using a variable frequency controller.

2.3 Pump Intake Curves

Predicting intake curves for submersible pumps is considered for two
cases: (1) pumping only liquid, and (2) pumping liquid and gas. For both
cases, it is assumed that the pump is set at the bottom of well and the
wellhead pressure and tubing size are fixed. For case 2, it is assumed that
all associated gas is pumped with the liquid. The sensitivity variable
selected is the number of stages
6
.

2.3.1 Pumping Liquid Only

Since the liquids are only slightly compressible, the volume of the
production rate can be considered constant and equal to the surface rate
q
sc
. Hence, the head per stage will also be constant, and Equation 10 can
be integrated to give

Pump selection is limited by the casing size. Another constraint is the
desired production rate. If the objective is to maximize the production rate,
the proper procedure is to select a pump whose efficiency range includes
rates that are close to the maximum rate of the well.

2.3.1.1 Procedure For The Preparation of Tubing Intake
Curves for Liquid Only

A step-wise procedure for predicting intake curves for the case
when only liquid is pumped follows
6
:

(1) Select a suitable pump as dictated by the casing size and the flow
capacity of the well
(2) Calculate
fsc
ρ from Equation 7 (GLR=0) and
fsc
γ from Equation 5.
(3) Assume various production rates and, for each of these rates, do the
following:
(a) Read the head per stage from the pump performance curves and
calculate the quantity (ρ
fsc
h/808.3141).
15
(b) Determine the required discharge pressure from a pressure gradient
correlation.
(c) Assume various numbers of stages and, for each of these numbers,
calculate the intake pressure from Equation 16.
(4) Plot the intake pressures vs rate for each assumed number of stages on
the same graph as the IPR curve and to the same scale.
(5) Read the rates at the intersection of the pump intake curves with the IPR
curve.
(6) For each rate, read the horsepower per stage from the pump
performance curves; then calculate the total horsepower requirement
from Equation 18.
(7) Plot the rates vs the number of stages and horsepower requirements.
Impose the efficiency range of the pump on the same graph.
(8) Select a suitable rate.

Whether pumping only liquid or pumping gas with the liquid, the selected
rate must satisfy the following criteria:

(a) Its volume range between the intake and the discharge pressures
must remain within the efficiency range of the pump.
(b) It must be economically feasible.

As the number of stages and, consequently, the production rate
increase, the effect of friction in the tubing string becomes significant,
causing the discharge pressure to increase. As a result, the gain in the
production rate per one stage continues to diminish until it becomes
insignificant.

2.3.2 Pumping Liquid and Gas

Because of the high compressibility of gas, the volume of the
produced flow rate V may undergo a significant variation as the pressure of
the fluid changes from the intake value to the discharge value. At any
pressure point between the intake and discharge, if all gas is pumped with
the liquid, the volume factor is determined from

if a certain percentage of the gas is vented:

| |
g s o
B R wc GLR GIP B wc wc VF ) 1 ( ) 1 ( − − + − + = (20)

In either case, the volume of the flow rate is given by:

VF q V
sc
= (21)

2.3.2.1 Determination Of The Number of Stages

Because V and, consequently, h vary as the fluid passes through
the pump, direct integration of Equation 10 is possible only if the integrand
V/h(V) can be reduced to a simple function of pressure. But this is difficult
because VF is a very complicated function of pressure. For this reason,
numerical integration methods are recommended.
The existence of gas at the intake section of the pump implies that
the intake pressure is below the bubble point of the crude (saturated crude).
If that is the case and if the required discharge pressure is above the bubble
point, Equation 10 should be broken down into two integrals as follows

The main reason for breaking down the number of stages into two
summations is the fact that V and, consequently, h undergo only slight
change above the bubble point; hence, ∆P
3,i
can be taken much larger than
18
∆P

In fact, satisfactory results are obtained even if ∆P

is taken as the
difference between P

and the quantity h V / is evaluated at the
midpoint.
When using a computer solution, it is easier to divide the interval
between the intake and the discharge pressure into equal increments by
taking ∆P

integration is not possible, and numerical methods must be used.

2.3.2.3 Pump Selection

As mentioned previously, pump selection is limited by the casing
size and flow capacity of the well. Another constraint that must be taken into
account when pumping gas with the liquid is the volume range of the flow
rate. Because of the high compressibility of the gas, the difference between
the intake and discharge volumes may be too great to be contained within
the efficiency range of one pump. For this reason, the following procedure
for pump selection is suggested
6
:

(1) Prepare IPR curves in stbl/d and b/d to the same scale on the same
graph.
(2) Enter the b/d IPR curve at the upper limit of the efficiency range of
several pumps that are suitable from a casing-size standpoint. Move
horizontally to the stbl/d IPR curve and read the intake rate in stbl/d.
(3) For each intake rate determined in step 2, do the following:
(a) Determine the required discharge pressure from a two-phase flow
correlation.
(b) Calculate VF at the discharge pressure, then calculate the discharge
volume.
21
(4) Select the pump for which the discharge volume is greater than or equal
to the lower limit of its efficency range.
If more than one pump is found to be suitable, choose the one with the
highest capacity.

2.3.2.4 Procedure for the Preparation of Intake Curves for
Wells Pumping Gas

A step-wise procedure for predicting tubing intake curves for the
case in which gas is with the liquid is given as follows
6
:

(1) Select a suitable pump as outlined previously.
(2) Calculate ρ
fsc
from Equation 7 and calculate the constant A from
Equation 23.
(3) Assume several production rates in stbl/d and, for each of these rates,
do the following:
(a) Determine the required discharge pressure (P
3,0
) from a two-phase
flow correlation.
(b) Choose ∆P
3
and calculate the quantity (A∆P
3
/q
sc
)
(c) Calculate
1 , 3
P and 1 , 3 P .
(d) Determine 1 VF at 1 , 3 P , then calculate
1
V .
(e) Read
1
h at
1
V from the pump performance curves.
(f) Calculate the required number of stages to obtain the intake pressure
P
3,1
from Equation 25.
(g) Repeat steps c-f for P
3,2
, P
3,3
through P
3,i
until a convenient intake
pressure is reached. Tabulate the intake pressure versus the number
of stages.
(4) By interpolating or plotting, obtain intake pressure for assumes rates for
an identical number of stages.
22
(5) Plot the intake pressure (obtained in step 4) versus the assumed
production rates for the various number of stages. Plot the stbl/d IPR
curve to the same scale on the same graph.
(6) Read the rates at the intersection of the pump intake curves with the IPR
curve.
(7) For each rate, calculate the horsepower requirement from Equation 33.
Calculation of horsepower requirements is similar to the calculation of
the number of stages.
(8) Plot the rate versus the number of stages and horsepower requirements.
Impose the efficiency range of the pump on the same graph.
(9) Select a suitable rate.

CHAPTER III

NODAL ANALYSIS APPROACH

3.1 Introduction

The systems analysis approach, often called NODAL
TM
Analysis, has
been applied for many years to analyze the performance of systems
composed of interacting components. Electrical circuits, complex pipeline
networks and centrifugal pumping systems are all analyzed using this
method. Its application to well producing systems was first proposed by
Gilbert
7
in 1954 and discussed by Nind
8
in 1964 and Brown
9
in 1978.
The production system can be relatively simple or can include many
components in which energy or pressure losses occur. Figure 3.1 illustrates
a number of the components in which pressure losses occur.
The procedure consists of selecting a division point or node in the well
and dividing the system at this point. All of the components upstream of the
node comprise the inflow section, while the outflow section consists of all of
the components downstream of the node. A relationship between flow rate
and pressure drop must be available for each component in the system. The
flow rate through the system can be determined once the following
requirements are satisfied
2
:

1 Flow into the node equals flow out of the node
2 Only one pressure can exist at a node.

At a particular time in the life of the well, there are always two pressures
that remain fixed and are not functions of flow rate. One of these pressures
24
is the average reservoir pressure,
R
p , and the other is the system
outlet pressure. The outlet pressure is usually the seperator pressure, p
sep
,
but if the well is controlled by a surface choke the fixed outlet pressure may
be the wellhead pressure p
wh
.

Once the node is selected, the node pressure is calculated from both
directions starting at the fixed pressures.

Inflow to the node:

p p
R
∆ − (upstream components) =
node
p (36)

Outflow from the node:

p p
sep
∆ + (downstream component) =
node
p (37)

The pressure drop, p ∆ , in any component varies with flow rate, q .
Therefore, a plot of node pressure versus flow rate will produce two curves,
the intersection of which will give the conditions satisfying requirements 1
and 2, given previously.
The effect of a change in any of the components can be analyzed by
recalculating the node pressure versus flow rate using the new
characteristics of the component that was changed. If a change was made
in an upstream component, the outflow curve will remain unchanged.
However, if either curve is changed, the intersection will be shifted, and a
new flow capacity and node pressure will exist. The curves will also be
shifted if either of the fixed pressures is changed, which may occur with
depletion or a change in separation conditions.
Figure 3.2 illustrates the comparison of intake curves for artificial lift
methods. It can be observed from the figure that electrical submersible
25
pump keeps the bottomhole pressure low, thus, creates large amount of
pressure drawdown to reach high production rates.

Inflow to node:

wh tubing res R
p p p p = ∆ − ∆ − (38)

Outflow from node:

wh flowline sep
p p p = ∆ + (39)

The effect of increasing the tubing size, as long as the tubing is not too
large, is to give a higher node or wellhead pressure for a given flow rate,
because the pressure drop in the tubing will be decreased. This shifts the
inflow curve upward and the intersection to the right.
A larger flowline will reduce the pressure drop in the flowline, shifting the
outflow down and the intersection to the right. The effect of a change in any
27
component in the system can be isolated in this manner. Also, the effect of
declining reservoir pressure or changing separator can be determined.
A more frequently used analysis procedure is to select the node
between the reservoir and piping system. The inflow and outflow
expressions for the simple system will then be:

Inflow to node:

wf res R
p p p = ∆ − (40)

Outflow from node:

wf tubing flowline sep
p p p p = ∆ + ∆ + (41)

A producing system may be optimized by selecting the combination of
component characteristics that will give the maximum production rate for the
lower cost. Although the overall pressure drop available for a system,
sep R
p p − , might be fixed at a particular time, the producing capacity of the
system depends on where the pressure drop occurs. If too much pressure
drop occurs in one component or module, there may be insufficient pressure
drop remaining for efficient performance of the other modules.
Even though the reservoir may be capable of producing a large amount
of fluid, if too much pressure drop occurs in the tubing, the well performance
suffers. For this type of well completion, it is obvious that increasing
reservoir performance by stimulation would be a waste of effort unless
larger tubing were installed.
If tubing is too large, the velocity of the fluid moving up the tubing may
be too low to effectively lift the liquids to the surface. This could be caused
by either large tubing or low production rates.The fluid velocity is the
production rate divided by the area of the tubing.
28
As tubing size is increased, the friction losses decrease, which results in
a lower
wf
p and, therefore, a larger inflow. However, as the tubing size is
further increased, the well begins loading with liquid and the flow becomes
intermittent or unstable. As the liquid level in the well builds the well will
eventually die.
Once a well that is producing liquids along with the gas reaches the
stage in which it will no longer flow naturally, it will usually be placed on
artificial lift.
The nodal systems analysis approach may used to analyze many
producing oil and gas well problems. The procedure can be applied to both
flowing and artificial lift wells, if the effect of artificial lift method on the
pressure can be expressed as a function of flow rate. The procedure can
also be applied to the analysis of injection well performance by appropriate
modification of the inflow and outflow expressions. A partial list of possible
applications is given as follows
2
:

1. Selecting tubing size
2. Selecting flowline size
3. Gravel pack design
4. Surface choke sizing
5. Subsurface safety valve sizing
6. Analyzing an existing system for abnormal flow restrictions
7. Artificial lift design
8. Well stimulation evaluation
9. Determinig the effect of compression on gas well performance
10. Analyzing the effects of perforating density
11. Predicting the effect of depletion on producing capacity
12. Allocating injection gas among gas lift wells
13. Analyzing a multiwell producing system
14. Relating field performance to time

3.2 Application of Nodal Analysis to Electrical Submersible Pumping
Wells

To perform a nodal analysis on a submersible pumping well, the node is
selected at the pump. The pump can be handled as an independent
component in the system in a manner similar to that used in gravel-packed
completions. The node pressure is either the pump intake pressure
up
p or
the pump discharge pressure
dn
p . The pressure gain that the pump must
generate for a particular producing rate is
up dn
p p p − = ∆ . The pressure
traverse below the pump will be calculated based on the formation
gas/liquid ratio and the casing size. The traverse in the tubing above the
pump will be based on the gas/liquid ratio entering the pump and the tubing
size. The inflow and outflow expressions are

:
Inflow:

The following procedure may be used to estimate the pressure gain and

2. Determine the required

4. Repeat for a range of liquid producing rates and plot

b. Determine dissolved gas

c. Estimate fraction of free gas

where:

3. Determine
dn
p using GLR

to calculate the pressure drop in the tubing
and the flowline if the casing gas is vented. If the casing tied into the
flowline, the total GLR will be used to determine the pressure drop in the
flowline.
4. Repeat for a range of
L
q and plot
dn
p vs
L
q on the same graph.
5. Select various producing rates and determine the pressure gain ∆p
required to achieve an intersection of the inflow and outflow curves at
these rates. The suction and discharge pressures can also be
determined for each rate.
31
6. Calculate the power requirement, pump size, number of stages, etc., at
each producing rate.

The required horsepower can be calculated from:

) ( 10 72 . 1

where:
HP = horsepower required
∆p = pressure gain, psi

q
w
= water rate, STB/day
B
o
= oil formation volume factor at suction conditions, bbl/STB, and
B
w
= water formation volume factor at suction conditions

The pressure gain can be converted to head gain if necessary for pump
selection. This is accomplished by dividing the pressure gain by the density
of fluid being pumped. The actual plotting of the data is not required if the
pump is to be selected for specific rates, as all the necessary information is
calculated before plotting.

3.3 Description of the Computer Program

3.3.1 Pumping Only Liquid

A two-stage computer program in Fortran Code has been written and
also EXCEL Worksheet was used to support the program.
At the first stage, program input consists of well, fluid, reservoir, and lift-
system data. Once these conditions were satisfied, program initially gives
the pressure at pump setting depth (discharge pressure) by applying
Hagedorn and Brown
3
vertical multiphase correlation. In addition to
32
Hagedorn and Brown Correlation, Griffith
4
Correlation was also used at
bubble flow to obtain accurate results. Steps followed in the correlation can
be observed in details at Chapter 4. During this process, program takes P
wh

as initial pressure and calculates depth increment at every 10 psi pressure
increase (pressure interval was taken low to reach an accurate solution) and
finally stores the pressure (discharge pressure) when depth reaches to total
pump setting depth. After recording discharge value program simply
calculates intake pressures at assumed flow rates and number of pump
stages. Head per stage data was required during these calculations and this
was achieved by constructing equation of each pump performance curve
and transferring it to program. These intake pressures are necessary to
construct intake curves on the same graph as the IPR curve. At the second
stage of the program, user should enter possible production rates to
programs, which are obtained manually by intersecting intake curve and IPR
curve. This procedure cannot be achieved by program since curve trendline
equation changes at every different input value and there is no chance of
data transfer between EXCEL Worksheet and the program. At the last step,
program calculates HP requirement at every possible rate, which will help
us to construct Possible Production Rate versus Stages and Horsepower
Figure. It should be kept in mind that pump selection is achieved manually
by entering to input, in other words program does not comprise an algorithm
that automatically selects a suitable pump for that well.

3.3.2 Pumping Liquid and Gas

Pumping gas with the liquid causes produced fluid rate V to undergo a
significant variation between the intake and discharge pressures. This is
due to high compressibility of gas. At any pressure point between the intake
and discharge, the volume factor should be determined. This process can
only be achieved by making huge amounts of iteration, which leads to
necessity of a computer program. A two-stage computer program in Fortran
33
Code has been written and also EXCEL Worksheet was used to support the
program. Input parameters of the program are same with pumping only
liquid program, however, GOR value should be entered since free gas
exists. At first stage, program calculates VF at pressure interval between
200 – 5000 psi. Afterwards, by following same steps with pumping only
liquid program, discharge pressure is calculated by Hagedorn and Brown
3

Vertical Multiphase Flow Correlation (existing as a subprogram in the
algorithm) and program starts to make iterations by decreasing pressure 50
psi at every iteration in order to calculate volume (h), h (head per stage) and
number of stage (St) values at desired production rate. As explained
previously, program computes Griffith
4
Correlation when bubble flow
conditions were formed. Program then calculates the intake pressure at
various numbers of stages to let us construct tubing intake curve on the
same graph as the IPR curve. At the second stage of the program, user
should again enter possible production rates to programs, which are
obtained manually by intersecting intake curve and IPR curve. This
procedure cannot be achieved by program as explained before. At this
point, program starts to make iterations to calculate horsepower per stage
and total horsepower requirement at every 50 psi pressure drop until it
reaches to intake pressure. This data will help us to construct Possible
Production Rate versus Stages and Horsepower Figure in order us to make
necessary evaluation. It should be kept in mind that pump selection is
achieved manually by entering to input, in other words program does not
include an algorithm that automatically selects a suitable pump for that well.

CHAPTER IV

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM


The objective of this study is to perform a production engineering
study at GK oil field in Southeastern Turkey. The main goal of the study is to
achieve production optimization of 10 electrical submersible pump lifted
wells currently operating in this field. Desired conclusion will be reached
after determining the optimum pump stages and horsepower requirement
for a possible production rate by a theorotical study and compare it with
actual field submersible pump operating data. The study will let us to
suggest optimum submersible pump running conditions for each well to
continue production in a more economical and cost saving approach.


Following steps were considered during the study to reach the aim:

• writing computer program that applies vertical multiphase flow
correlation and computes the parameters that were required for the
optimization
• collecting and evaluating the actual reservoir, well, fluid and lifting
data that the case study was performed
• entering field data to computer program and taking the output for
two pumping conditions
35
• preparing necessary figures and charts concerning pump stages,
production rate and horsepower requirement using the computer
output
• comparison of actual field values and theorotical values and
making necessary suggestions

CHAPTER V

HAGEDORN AND BROWN VERTICAL MULTIPHASE FLOW
CORRELATION SUPPORTED BY GRIFFITH CORRELATION

5.1 Introduction

The use of multiphase flow pipeline pressure drop correlations is very
important in applying nodal analysis.
The correlations that are most widely used at the present time for
vertical multiphase flow are as follows:

1. Hagedorn and Brown
3

2. Duns and Ros
10

3. Ros and Gray
11

4. Orkiszewski
12

5. Beggs and Brill
13

6. Aziz
14


These are found to calculate pressure drop very well in certain wells
and certain fields. However, one may be much better than the other under
certain conditions and field pressure surveys are the only way to find out.
Without any knowledge in a particular field, it would be recommended
beginning initial work with the correlations as listed in the above order.
In the literature it is recommended to from a hybrid by using the most
dependable parts of the four models. As an example, the commercial
vertical multiphase flow model (MTRAN) that was developed by Scientific
Software Incorporation uses the following sections:


37
1. Duns and Ros
10
flow map
2. Use Orkiszewski
12
for bubble flow
3. Use Hagedorn and Brown
3
for slug flow
4. Use Duns and Ros
10
for transitional and mist flow

Figure 5.1 illustrates the schematic diagram of possible flow patterns in
two-phase pipelines to visualize the flow systems that above correlations
used for.

Pipelines

5.2 Hagedorn and Brown Method

The Hagedorn and Brown
3
method was developed by obtaining
experimental pressure drop and flow rate data from a 1500 ft deep
instrumented well. Pressures were measured for flow in tubing sizes ranging
from 1 ¼ to 2 7/8 in O.D. A wide range of liquid rates and gas/liquid ratios
was included, and the effects of liquid viscosity were studied by using water
and oil as the liquid phase. The oils used had viscosities at stock tank
conditions of 10, 35 and 110 cp. Later two adjustments were made to
improve this correlation. When bubble flow existed, the Griffith
4
Correlation
was used and when the no slip holdup was greater than the holdup value,
the no slip holdup was used
2
.
Neither liquid holdup nor flow pattern was measured during the
Hagedorn and Brown study, although a correlation for the calculated liquid
holdup is presented. The correlations were developed by assuming that the
two-phase friction factor could be obtained from the Moody diagram based
on a two-phase Reynolds number. This Reynolds Number requires a value
for
L
H in the viscosity term.
The Hagedorn and Brown method has been found to give good
results over a wide range of well conditions and is one of the most widely
used well flow correlations in the industry
2
. However, the original Hagedorn
and Brown correlation has several weaknesses: At first, it is not very
accurate in bubble flow. Moreover, calculated slip holdup is sometimes
below no-slip holdup and also the acceleration term is too dominant.
Thompson added that, the modified Hagedorn and Brown Correlation
tended to overpredict pressure loss in bubble flow (Griffith), while it tended
to underpredict slug flow. The Hagedorn and Brown Correlation gives best
results for wellbores with low to moderate liquid volume fractions (high gas-
liquid ratios) and relatively high mixture velocities (annular-mist or froth
flow).
The selection of appropriate correlation for a given production system
is important to reach to an accurate solution. In this study, Hagedorn and

Brown correlation was selected to calculate pressure drop for flow in the
vertical tubing. However, during the execution of the correlation in this
study, Griffith modification was also used when bubble flow conditions were
satisfied since Hagedorn and Brown method shows weaknesses at bubble
flow.

Depending upon the requirements of the problem,i.e., whether or not a
flowing bottom-hole pressure is to be determined from surface information,
or whether the calculations are to start from total depth and come up the
pipe, the starting pressure must be known. Pressure increments or
decrements must then be assumed from which the distance between
pressure points (1) and (2) will be calculated.
As a word of precaution, if starting from the surface with a pressure
lower than 100 psi, increments of 25 psi should be taken until reaching 400
40
psi. This type of calculation is practically forbidden by long hand but lends
itself readily to machine computation. If starting from bottom with pressures
in excess of 1,000 psi, the pressure decrements may be as great as 200
psi.

CHAPTER VI

DESCRIPTION OF THE GK FIELD

6.1 Introduction

The selected field is located on South East Anatolian. The field was
discovered in 1961 and has been on production since then. Currently, there
are a total of 29 wells with 12 producers, 13 closed-in, 2 dumpflooders and
2 injection wells. The main drive mechanism of the field is rock and fluid
expansion, there also exists a weak aquifer at the system but not sufficient
to create a producing force.
The field started its production life as a dry and natural flowing field. A
steep pressure decline in wells was observed during late 1961 and early
1962. It was decided that the field pressure should be maintained by water
injection through peripheral wells –3 and –5 on the Eastern and Western
flanks of the field to keep the production wells on natural flow. In 1966,
water cut increased and killed natural flow. In 1967, as a result of high field
offtake, pressure in producers began to decline rapidly. Thus, in August
1967, water injection was stopped to observe production declines in the field
and artificial lift system was installed. After realising that recovery is
constrained by pressure decline rather than the watercut development in
1986 dumpflooding started. In June 1997 from two wells re-injection
started
19
.




52
6.2 Geology

The field is an elongated structure in an approximate East–West
direction. Up to date 29 wells have been drilled and two wells are located
outside the field (Well-9 and Well-10). The field is a frontal thrust structure
consisting of an anticline on the leading edge of the thrust block. The
reservoir rock has been divided into Mardin Units, I, II, III and IV. These
units are further subdivided based on lithology (limestone and dolomite) and
porosity classes.
There is a main continues East-West trending normal fault. This main
fault separates two blocks as Main Block and Northern Block and there is an
another block called Western Block. The unique pressure response of the
W-14 with respect to the rest of the field (pressure measured in W-14
showed slight depletion of only a few hundred psi, when the average
reservoir pressure in the rest of the field was more than 1000 psi) may show
the existence of a barrier between W-14 and W-11 due to either a fault or
reservoir rock quality deterioration (a permeability barrier) between those
wells. The reservoir deterioration between the wells on the other hand, can
not be confirmed due to shallow completion of the W-11 which prevents the
correlation of two wells because of the long distance between these two
wells, the deterioration of the reservoir quality is still quite possible.
The units having the highest porosities are the dolomite in Unit I and the
high porosity limestone close to the bottom of the Unit II. The average
porosities of this dolomite unit varies between 15% and 20% and the
average permeabilities between 6 mD-50mD based on core measurements.
Intercrystalline and vuggy porosities, and some solution channels and
fractures were also observed on the core samples.
Unit II is described as limestone-dolomitic limestone. Cores indicated
that it has vuggy porosity and solution channels, and some sub-vertical/sub-
horizontal fractures also exist. The average porosity is 10%-15% with air
permeabilities between 0.3 mD-1.5 mD based on core measurements.
53
All of the producing wells produce from Unit I and II, the dumpflooders
W-3, W-5, W-19 inject the water into Unit I and injectors W-11 and W-18
inject to Unit I and II.

6.3 Reservoir,Fluid and Lift-System Properties

In the absence of PVT sampling, reservoir fluid properties have been, to
large extent, derived from correlations. Estimated values for key parameters
are listed in Table 6.1.

Production rates and bottomhole pressures recorded for the producer
wells between the years 1961 and 1999 gives the generalized IPR curve
showed in Figure 6.1. This figure is the combination of 66 well test data from
12 different producer wells and by inspecting the figure, it can be observed
that the (q

CHAPTER VII

RESULTS AND DISCUSSION

7.1 INTRODUCTION

Calculations are based on the steps that are summarized in Chapter 2
at sections 2.3.1.1 for pumping liquid and 2.3.2.4 for pumping liquid and
gas. These calculations were done for the 10 submersible pump lifted wells
indicated in Table 6.2 and by using the pumps that were actually operated in
the GK field. Detailed sample calculation for W-08 and the output of
computer program can be observed in Appendix B.

Results of the study can be categorized into five different parts:

a. Construction of vertical flowing pressure gradient (pressure traverse)
curves according to computer program output and comparing the
results with Beggs&Brill
13
Correlation
b. Performing Sensitivity Analysis based on effect of of oil density, GLR
and WOR on flowing bottomhole pressure by using the computer
program output
c. Construction of possible production rate versus stage and
horsepower chart for each well (GLR = 15 scf / STB) by using the
pumping liquid and gas computer algorithm
d. Comparison of theoretical and actual production parameters and
suggestion for optimum pump operating conditions by inspecting
possible production rate versus stage and horsepower chart

Correlation gives program user a chance to construct the vertical flowing
pressure gradient curves at any flow rate and at the desired reservoir, fluid
and well conditions. Pressure traverse curves for a flow rate of 100 stb/d
and with a water-cut of 0, 0.5 and 1.0 were constructed respectively
according to GK field data and by the help of computer program output.
These curves can be observed at Figure 7.1, 7.2 and 7.3.

A comparison was made between pressure traverse curves prepared
by Beggs&Brill
13
and curves constructed with computer output in order to
test the accuracy of correlation used in the program algorithm. Table 7.1
briefly indicates the pressures at selected depths with respect to two
conditions. Inspecting Table 7.1, we can understand that computer-based
pressures and the Beggs&Brill correlation values are very close to each
other. This means that vertical multiphase flow correlation within the
program is giving reliable output and encurages us about the accuracy of
rest of the study. It should be kept in mind that values determined from
Beggs&Brill correlation are recorded at slightly different reservoir and fluid
conditions than GK field parameters, that is, gas gravity is 0.65, oil API
gravity is 35 and average flowing temperature is 150 °F. Another point that
should be taken into account during the comparison is that when GLR
increases, difference between pressure values of computer output and
Beggs&Brill values are also increases. This behaviour can be interpreted as
reliability of Hagedorn and Brown flow correlation supported by Griffith
Correlation should be re-tested at high GLR reservoirs.

7.2.2 Sensitivity Analysis by Using the Computer Program Output

Having a chance of changing all variables related to Hagedorn and
Brown vertical multiphase flow correlation within the program, sensitivity
analysis was performed by observing the effect of oil density, GLR and
WOR on flowing bottomhole pressure. Results were summarized in Table
7.2, 7.3 and 7.4. Reservoir and fluid data of W-08 was used during the
study. After making necessary observations for the output, it can be
observed that the increase in oil density and GLR creates a slight decrease
in bottomhole pressure, and an increase in WOR causes an increase in
flowing bottomhole pressure.

7.2.3 Construction of Possible Production Rate versus Stage
and Horsepower Chart for GK Field Wells by Using
the Pumping Liquid and Gas Computer Algorithm

Possible production rate versus stage and horsepower chart was
prepared for each electrical submersible pump lifted wells in GK field by
considering the intake pressures obtained from computer program at
selected flow rates. These charts can said to be the final step of the study
and helped us to make necessary suggestions for optimum pump operating
conditions. In below figures, actual value point is the real production rate of
the well in GK field and the number of pump stages used for that well. It
should be noted that actual horsepower requirement data for these wells
are not available. On Figures 7.6 to 7.14, the efficiency range of the pumps
used and also suggested flow rate and corresponding horsepower
requirement and number of pump stages can be observed.

7.2.4 Comparison of Theoretical and Actual Production Parameters
and Suggestion for Optimum Pump Operating Conditions by
Inspecting Possible Production Rate versus Stage and
Horsepower Chart

Inspection of Possible Production Rate versus Stage and
Horsepower charts for GK field wells let us to make following interpretations:
Actual operating rate of W-07 is 180 stb/d with 356 stages. This
operating rate is within the efficiency range (83-458 bpd) of the pump used
(DN 440), however from the Figure 7.6 it can be observed that beyond 100
stb/d, the horsepower requirement and the number of pump stages increase
very fast without a significant gain in the production rate. A production rate
of 90 stb/d with a horsepower requirement of 40 HP, and a pump stages of
450 can said to be ideal considering the chart.
W-08 is operated with 740 stb/d with 238 stages. This production rate
is higher than the upper limit of pump efficiency range (267-692 bpd). On
the other hand, by examining Figure 7.7, 740 stb/d rate at 238 stages seem
to be a good choice, since HP and pump stage curve slope increases
significantly with an increase in production rate. A production rate of 680
stb/d and a corresponding horsepower requirement of 35 HP and 230 pump
stages can be suggested which are close to actual operating values. 680
stb/d production rate is useful since it is within the upper limit of efficiency
range and providing maximum production rate from W-08.
W-15 cannot be interpreted due to lack of required data.
W-16 is operated with 1350 stb/d with a pump stage of 180. The rate
is within the efficiency range of the pump (833-1792 bpd) and the
corresponding pump stages and HP requirement can said to be economical
by observing Figure 7.8. A production rate of 1200 stb/d with a 70 HP and
160 pump stages can be a perfect design and it should be noted that the
actual production rate and pump stage values are nearly equal to theoretical
values.
78
W-17 is operated with 1270 stb/d with 181 stages. This rate indicates
that the pump is used efficiently (833-1792 bpd). Besides, observing Figure
7.9, operating production rate and pump stage values are said to be at
optimum range, and the actual and theoretical values are close to each
other. Thus, a production rate of 1400 stb/d and a corresponding HP
requirement of 100 HP and 220 pump stages can be offered in theorotical
circumstances.
W-22 produces with a low rate, 70 stb/d, with 320 stages. Figure 7.10
shows that the rate is below pump efficiency range (83-458 bpd) and also
320 stages is useless since HP requirement increases significantly,
however production rate increases slightly. This well can said to be
operated inefficiently. 390 stb/d production rate can be selected with a 18
HP requirement and a pump stages of 212.
W-24 produces 1000 stb/d within upper limit of pump efficiency range
(500-1125 bpd). Pump stage value is 332, and entire actual operating data,
is acceptable. Suggested values can be given as 1050 stb/d production rate
with a 32 HP and 270 pump stages.
W-25 is operated with 1620 stb/d with 239 stages. Figure 7.12 shows
that the actual operating production rate can be selected higher, especially
within efficiency range (1834-3417 bpd) of the pump. 1900 stb/d production
rate with a 310 HP and a pump stage of 400 can be suggested for this well
but it should be noted that horsepower requirement is too high to be
operated in field conditions.
W-27 has a production rate of 400 stb/d and a pump stage of 338.
Examining Figure 7.13, it can be concluded that the pump is operating at its
optimum range (267-692 bpd). Operating with 650 stb/d with a 25 HP and
170 pump stages can be economical.
W-28 operates with 530 stb/d within its pump efficiency range (267-
692 bpd) with 338 stages 680 stb/d production rate with a 28 HP and 192
pump stages can be a good selection.

CHAPTER VIII

CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

System Nodal Analysis is an useful method in designing and optimizing
a production system having interacting components. Application of Nodal
Analysis technique to electrical submersible pumps lets production
engineers to run the pump more efficiently by selecting optimum flow rate
and corresponding number of pump stages and horsepower requirement.
System optimization is especially important when dealing with gas with
liquid rather than producing and pumping only liquid. In these cases, system
analysis should be supported by a computer program to overcome large
iterations due to production volume change between pump discharge and
intake pressures. It should be noted that GK field has a low GOR (15
scf/STB) which allows straight-forward pump designs without a need of
detailed optimization procedures. This study is useful especially for high
GOR submersible pump lifted wells. A computer program is also necessary
to predict pressure at required depth simultaneously by using vertical
multiphase flow correlation. It can be observed from the results that
Hagedorn and Brown correlation generally gave acceptable program output
when compared with Beggs&Brill Correlation, however failed to give
accurate values at bubble flow. During the study, Griffith Correlation was
used when bubble flow conditions were met. Results indicated that when
dealing with high GLR wells by the help of the computer program, Hagedorn
and Brown Correlation showed tendency to give less accurate output. In this
study, sensitivity analysis was also performed based on the effect of oil
gravity, WOR and GLR on flowing bottomhole pressure which was
evaluated with graphical analysis.
Evaluation of possible production rate versus stage and horsepower
chart showed that within 10 submersible pump lifted wells, 3 wells, W-16,
82
W-17, and W-24 were operated at their optimum range. 5 wells, W-07, W-
08, W-25, W-27, and W-28, were not operated completely at optimum
operating conditions but can said to be acceptable. 1 well, W-22, was
operated inefficiently which should be re-designed to reach optimum
parameters. W–15 could not be interpreted due to lack of required
production data. The study gave the writer a chance to suggest optimum
operating parameters for each well. Finally, it should be kept in mind that
actual production rates for the wells in GK field can be different from the
optimized values because of the commercial production needs of the oil
companies.

TABLE D5 Relation of Production Parameters With Each Other




Comments


Wellhead Pressure, P
wh

A high wellhead pressure means a high pump
discharge pressure. More the pump increases
the pressure from intake to discharge value,
more the pressure will be in the wellhead


Intake Pressure, P
intake
Assuming a constant discharge pressure ,
intake pressure increases with an increase in
production rate and decreases with an increase
in number of pump stages


Discharge Pressure,
P
discharge
Discharge pressure is a function of production
rate, and pressure in the wellhead. These
parameters are directly proportional with
discharge pressure


Pressure gain, ∆P
gain
Pressure gained by pump (P
discharge
-

P
intake
)
increases with an increase in number of pump
stage however in this case pump requires more
horsepower


Pressure loss ∆P
loss

Pressure loss in the tubing is directly related to
production rate. High production rates results in
high-pressure losses.



Production Rate, q
An increase in production rate results in
increase in pressure loss due to friction and
related to that increase in discharge pressure
Also an increase in production rate decreases
the pump head (per stage) which causes a
decrease in intake pressure and thus a
decrease in pressure gain by pump


Number of Stages
If number of pump stages will be increased
then intake pressure will decrease, that means
pump will gain more pressure but at the same
time pump will require more horsepower


HP Required
High horsepower requirement means number
of pump stages will be more and pressure gain
will be high, i.e, pump will increase the intake
pressure to higher discharge pressure for lifting
the fluid

ABSTRACT

PRODUCTION SYSTEM OPTIMIZATION FOR SUBMERSIBLE PUMP LIFTED WELLS : A CASE STUDY

GÜLER, Nuri Ozan M.S. Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering Supervisor: Prof. Dr. A. Suat Bağcı April, 2004, 173 Pages

A computer program has been written to perform production optimization in submersible pump lifted wells. Production optimization was achieved by the principles of Nodal Analysis Technique which was applied between the reservoir and the wellhead ignoring the surface choke and separator. Computer program has been written according to two lifting environment, which are: pumping with only liquid and pumping with both liquid and gas. Program played an important role in the study by overcoming difficult iterations existing in the pumping liquid and gas case due to variation of liquid volume between pump intake and discharge pressure. Hagedorn and Brown vertical multiphase flow correlation was utilized in the program to determine the pressure at required depth. However, Griffith Correlation was also used in the program since Hagedorn and Brown Correlation failed to give accurate results at bubble flow.

The oil cut may also vary within very wide limits. check and bleeder valves are the optional equipment that can be taken into consideration. A submersible pumping unit consists of an electric motor. The first submersible pumping unit was installed in an oil well in 1928 and since that time the concept has proven itself throughout the oilproducing world1. an electric cable. a surface installed switchboard. from negligible amounts to 100 %. Additional miscellaneous components also present in order to secure the cable alongside the tubing and wellhead supports. a seal section. a multistage centrifugal pump. many submersible pump lifted oil and gas wells produce at rates different than optimum. it is considered as an effective and economical means of lifting large volumes of fluid from great depths under a variety of well conditions. Under normal operating conditions.CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION The electrical submersible pumping system can said to be an attractive artificial lift technique in reservoirs having high water-cut and low gas-oil ratio. Currently. The pump performs at highest efficiency when pumping liquid only. a junction box and transformers.000 b/d and as low as 200 b/d. Pumping equipment is capable of producing as high as 60. This fact makes necessary to apply production optimization techniques to wells having low production rates. an intake section. Nodal Analysis has been applied to artificial lift method for many years to 1 . Despite this advantage. it can handle free gas with the liquid but high volumes of free gas causes inefficient operation and gas lock problems. submersible pumping unit can be expected to give from 1 to 3 years of good operating life with some units operating over 10 years. Pressure sentry for sensing bottom-hole pressure.

Then we pick a problem area in this production system as a node. Optimization and design of submersible pump lifted wells pumping only liquid are generally straightforward however pumping gas with the liquid is complicated because of the high compressibility of gas.e. The system includes all flow between the reservoir and the separator. each of the components is modelled using various correlations or equations to determine the pressure loss through that component as a function of flow rate. computer program should be written to overcome these iterations. The Nodal analysis technique is essentially a simulator of the producing well system. well productivity and producing efficiency. This node acts as the intersection point between the inflow and outflow performances. It is a process of determining the effect of each component in the production system on the total system performance. As the entire system is simulated. In this case. we divide the production system into its components. When performing a Nodal analysis. tubing. all of which lead to increased profitability from oil and gas investments. Different inflow and outflow performance curves intersect on the same plot and give the design considerations for different arrangements2. The production rate or deliverability of a well can be severely restricted by the poor performance of just one component in the system. Thus. the efficiency of the system can be optimized in the most economical way.. volume of the produced fluid rate shows a significant variation between the pump intake and discharge pressures. The summation of these individual losses make up the total pressure loss through the entire system for a given flow rate. The analysis can improve the completion design.analyze the performance of the systems composed of interacting components. If the effect of each component on the performance of the total system can be isolated. Optimization of wells with Nodal Analysis requires pressure gradient correlation in order to reach a solution so it is 2 . reservoir. perforations. consequently considerable amount of iterations should be performed to determine the volume factor at any pressure between the intake and discharge pressures. flowline and separator. surface choke. i.

In this study. during the study it was observed that Hagedorn and Brown Correlation failed to give accurate output at bubble flow.necessary to use a vertical multiphase flow correlation method in the computer program. The purpose of this study was to write a general computer program that gives simultaneously the possible production rates for submersible pump lifted wells and also the optimum required horsepower and number of pump stages at these possible rates both considering pumping liquid and pumping gas with liquid. In addition to that objective. However. Griffith Correlation4 was constructed at bubble flow to obtain accurate results. Hagedorn and Brown vertical multiphase flow correlation3 has been used to determine the pressure and pressure losses at required depth. Thus.

a centrifugal separator will be placed between the pump and motor for obtaining maximum gas-liquid separation.1.CHAPTER II ELECTRICAL SUBMERSIBLE PUMPS 2. In some cases. From figure. The annulus is either vented or tied into the well’s flowline. A typical submersible pump installation is given in Figure 2.2. so that as much gas as possible is separated from the liquid before it enters the pump. Figure 2. From the figure it can be seen that. along with the pressure traverse in the well. A schematic of a well equipped with a submersible pump is given in Figure 2.1 Introduction Many high volume wells are equipped with electric submersible pumps (ESP) to lift the liquid and decrease the flowing bottom hole pressure. the effective lift point is that depth at 4 . Discharge pressure of the pump will be defined as P2.3 is a typical pressure traverses for pump on bottom. Electrical power is supplied by means of a cable from the surface. This insufficient pressure (Pup) which we define as intake pressure starts to increase at pump setting depth by required pump stages and finally reaches to discharge pressure (Pdn) generated by the pump which will assist fluid to flow throughout the surface. initially. A submersible pump is a multistage centrifugal pump that is driven by an electric motor located in the well below the pump. and also intake pressure will be defined as P3 throughout the study. The pump and motor are suspended on the tubing at a certain depth in the well. flowing pressure of submersible pump lifted well is not sufficient to lift the fluid (depleted well).

however high volumes of free gas are known to cause inefficient operation. 5 . The manner in which the pump handle gas is not completely understood. The pump performs highest efficiency when pumping liquid only.which the flowing bottomhole pressure is capable of supporting the fluids in the tubing string. It can and does handle free gas along with the liquid.

This horsepower must be multiplied by the specific gravity of the fluid under consideration. Thus the following can be stated: (horsepower requirements) = (horsepower per stage) × (specific gravity of fluid) × (number of stages) Since the horsepower per stage. which varies between the intake and the discharge pressures.433 P h(V ) ∫ d ( HP) = ( 0 (13) or: 12 .

For both cases. there is a capacity range within which the pump performs at or near its peak efficency.3 Pump Intake Curves Predicting intake curves for submersible pumps is considered for two cases: (1) pumping only liquid. therefore. it is assumed that the pump is set at the bottom of well and the wellhead pressure and tubing size are fixed.3.1 Pumping Liquid Only Since the liquids are only slightly compressible. This range. The volume range of the selected rate between the intake and the discharge pressures should. the head per stage will also be constant. the volume of the production rate can be considered constant and equal to the surface rate qsc. Hence. it is assumed that all associated gas is pumped with the liquid.3141 )( P2 − P3 ) ρ fsc h St = ( (15) Solving Equation 15 for P3 gives: 13 . remain within the efficiency range of the pump.433 P3 h(V ) P (14) For each pump. and Equation 10 can be integrated to give6: 808. can be changed by using a variable frequency controller.

(3) Assume various production rates and.P3 = P2 − ( ρ fsc h 808.3141). the proper procedure is to select a pump whose efficiency range includes rates that are close to the maximum rate of the well.433 h (17) Substituting Equation 15 into the above equation yields: HP = h p γ fsc St (18) Pump selection is limited by the casing size. Another constraint is the desired production rate. If the objective is to maximize the production rate.1 Procedure For The Preparation of Tubing Intake Curves for Liquid Only A step-wise procedure for predicting intake curves for the case when only liquid is pumped follows6: (1) Select a suitable pump as dictated by the casing size and the flow capacity of the well (2) Calculate ρ fsc from Equation 7 (GLR=0) and γ fsc from Equation 5. 14 . for each of these rates.1.

(4) Plot the intake pressures vs rate for each assumed number of stages on the same graph as the IPR curve and to the same scale.

numerical integration methods are recommended. h vary as the fluid passes through the pump. direct integration of Equation 10 is possible only if the integrand V/h(V) can be reduced to a simple function of pressure. The existence of gas at the intake section of the pump implies that the intake pressure is below the bubble point of the crude (saturated crude). if all gas is pumped with the liquid. Equation 10 should be broken down into two integrals as follows6: 16 . At any pressure point between the intake and discharge. the volume of the flow rate is given by: V = q scVF 2. But this is difficult because VF is a very complicated function of pressure.3. For this reason.2.2 Pumping Liquid and Gas Because of the high compressibility of gas.1 Determination Of The Number of Stages (21) Because V and.3. the volume of the produced flow rate V may undergo a significant variation as the pressure of the fluid changes from the intake value to the discharge value.2. the volume factor is determined from6: VF = wc + (1 − wc) Bo + [GLR − (1 − wc) R s ]B g (19) if a certain percentage of the gas is vented: VF = wc + (1 − wc) Bo + GIP[GLR − (1 − wc ) R s ]B g (20) In either case.

Because of the high compressibility of the gas.433 hi (34) then Equation 33 can be written as: n HPi = ∑ ∆ ( HP) i i =1 (35) 2. (3) For each intake rate determined in step 2. the following procedure for pump selection is suggested6: (1) Prepare IPR curves in stbl/d and b/d to the same scale on the same graph. the difference between the intake and discharge volumes may be too great to be contained within the efficiency range of one pump. (b) Calculate VF at the discharge pressure. then calculate the discharge volume. 20 . pump selection is limited by the casing size and flow capacity of the well. Another constraint that must be taken into account when pumping gas with the liquid is the volume range of the flow rate.2. Move horizontally to the stbl/d IPR curve and read the intake rate in stbl/d. For this reason.3 Pump Selection As mentioned previously.

The flow rate through the system can be determined once the following requirements are satisfied2: 1 Flow into the node equals flow out of the node 2 Only one pressure can exist at a node. At a particular time in the life of the well. there are always two pressures that remain fixed and are not functions of flow rate. Figure 3.1 Introduction The systems analysis approach. Its application to well producing systems was first proposed by Gilbert7 in 1954 and discussed by Nind8 in 1964 and Brown9 in 1978. The production system can be relatively simple or can include many components in which energy or pressure losses occur. The procedure consists of selecting a division point or node in the well and dividing the system at this point. All of the components upstream of the node comprise the inflow section. A relationship between flow rate and pressure drop must be available for each component in the system. often called NODALTM Analysis.

is the average reservoir pressure. Inflow to the node: p R − ∆p (upstream components) = p node (36) Outflow from the node: p sep + ∆p (downstream component) = p node (37) The pressure drop. If a change was made in an upstream component. psep. the intersection will be shifted. a plot of node pressure versus flow rate will produce two curves. but if the well is controlled by a surface choke the fixed outlet pressure may be the wellhead pressure pwh. the node pressure is calculated from both directions starting at the fixed pressures. the intersection of which will give the conditions satisfying requirements 1 and 2. Figure 3. The effect of a change in any of the components can be analyzed by recalculating the node pressure versus flow rate using the new characteristics of the component that was changed. The outlet pressure is usually the seperator pressure. ∆p . The curves will also be shifted if either of the fixed pressures is changed. which may occur with depletion or a change in separation conditions. However. p R . if either curve is changed. It can be observed from the figure that electrical submersible 24 . the outflow curve will remain unchanged. and a new flow capacity and node pressure will exist. Once the node is selected. and the other is the system outlet pressure.2 illustrates the comparison of intake curves for artificial lift methods. Therefore. in any component varies with flow rate. q . given previously.

thus. Figure 3.pump keeps the bottomhole pressure low.1 Pressure Losses In a Production System2 25 . creates large amount of pressure drawdown to reach high production rates.

This shifts the inflow curve upward and the intersection to the right. shifting the outflow down and the intersection to the right.Figure 3. The effect of a change in any 26 . because the pressure drop in the tubing will be decreased. is to give a higher node or wellhead pressure for a given flow rate. as long as the tubing is not too large. A larger flowline will reduce the pressure drop in the flowline.2 Inflow to node: Tubing Intake Curves for Artificial Lift Systems6 p R − ∆p res − ∆p tubing = p wh (38) Outflow from node: p sep + ∆p flowline = p wh (39) The effect of increasing the tubing size.

the producing capacity of the system depends on where the pressure drop occurs. The inflow and outflow expressions for the simple system will then be: Inflow to node: p R − ∆p res = p wf (40) Outflow from node: p sep + ∆p flowline + ∆p tubing = p wf (41) A producing system may be optimized by selecting the combination of component characteristics that will give the maximum production rate for the lower cost. the velocity of the fluid moving up the tubing may be too low to effectively lift the liquids to the surface. might be fixed at a particular time. This could be caused by either large tubing or low production rates. Although the overall pressure drop available for a system. 27 . If too much pressure drop occurs in one component or module. For this type of well completion. there may be insufficient pressure drop remaining for efficient performance of the other modules. if too much pressure drop occurs in the tubing. it is obvious that increasing reservoir performance by stimulation would be a waste of effort unless larger tubing were installed.The fluid velocity is the production rate divided by the area of the tubing. A more frequently used analysis procedure is to select the node between the reservoir and piping system. p R − p sep . Even though the reservoir may be capable of producing a large amount of fluid. If tubing is too large. the effect of declining reservoir pressure or changing separator can be determined.component in the system can be isolated in this manner. the well performance suffers. Also.

It should be kept in mind that pump selection is achieved manually by entering to input. At any pressure point between the intake and discharge. program takes Pwh as initial pressure and calculates depth increment at every 10 psi pressure increase (pressure interval was taken low to reach an accurate solution) and finally stores the pressure (discharge pressure) when depth reaches to total pump setting depth. A two-stage computer program in Fortran 32 . This process can only be achieved by making huge amounts of iteration. program calculates HP requirement at every possible rate. 3. During this process. the volume factor should be determined. Steps followed in the correlation can be observed in details at Chapter 4. This procedure cannot be achieved by program since curve trendline equation changes at every different input value and there is no chance of data transfer between EXCEL Worksheet and the program.Hagedorn and Brown Correlation. Griffith4 Correlation was also used at bubble flow to obtain accurate results. which are obtained manually by intersecting intake curve and IPR curve. These intake pressures are necessary to construct intake curves on the same graph as the IPR curve.2 Pumping Liquid and Gas Pumping gas with the liquid causes produced fluid rate V to undergo a significant variation between the intake and discharge pressures. At the second stage of the program. After recording discharge value program simply calculates intake pressures at assumed flow rates and number of pump stages. Head per stage data was required during these calculations and this was achieved by constructing equation of each pump performance curve and transferring it to program.3. which leads to necessity of a computer program. in other words program does not comprise an algorithm that automatically selects a suitable pump for that well. At the last step. user should enter possible production rates to programs. which will help us to construct Possible Production Rate versus Stages and Horsepower Figure. This is due to high compressibility of gas.

Afterwards. This procedure cannot be achieved by program as explained before. At first stage. It should be kept in mind that pump selection is achieved manually by entering to input. which are obtained manually by intersecting intake curve and IPR curve. however. h (head per stage) and number of stage (St) values at desired production rate.Code has been written and also EXCEL Worksheet was used to support the program. At the second stage of the program. 33 . user should again enter possible production rates to programs. program calculates VF at pressure interval between 200 – 5000 psi. by following same steps with pumping only liquid program. As explained previously. Program then calculates the intake pressure at various numbers of stages to let us construct tubing intake curve on the same graph as the IPR curve. This data will help us to construct Possible Production Rate versus Stages and Horsepower Figure in order us to make necessary evaluation. discharge pressure is calculated by Hagedorn and Brown3 Vertical Multiphase Flow Correlation (existing as a subprogram in the algorithm) and program starts to make iterations by decreasing pressure 50 psi at every iteration in order to calculate volume (h). At this point. program computes Griffith4 Correlation when bubble flow conditions were formed. program starts to make iterations to calculate horsepower per stage and total horsepower requirement at every 50 psi pressure drop until it reaches to intake pressure. Input parameters of the program are same with pumping only liquid program. GOR value should be entered since free gas exists. in other words program does not include an algorithm that automatically selects a suitable pump for that well.

The main goal of the study is to achieve production optimization of 10 electrical submersible pump lifted wells currently operating in this field. Desired conclusion will be reached after determining the optimum pump stages and horsepower requirement for a possible production rate by a theorotical study and compare it with actual field submersible pump operating data. Following steps were considered during the study to reach the aim: • writing computer program that applies vertical multiphase flow correlation and computes the parameters that were required for the optimization • • collecting and evaluating the actual reservoir.CHAPTER IV STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM The objective of this study is to perform a production engineering study at GK oil field in Southeastern Turkey.

Duns and Ros10 3.CHAPTER V HAGEDORN AND BROWN VERTICAL MULTIPHASE FLOW CORRELATION SUPPORTED BY GRIFFITH CORRELATION 5. the commercial vertical multiphase flow model (MTRAN) that was developed by Scientific Software Incorporation uses the following sections: 36 . The correlations that are most widely used at the present time for vertical multiphase flow are as follows: 1. it would be recommended beginning initial work with the correlations as listed in the above order. In the literature it is recommended to from a hybrid by using the most dependable parts of the four models. Without any knowledge in a particular field.1 Introduction The use of multiphase flow pipeline pressure drop correlations is very important in applying nodal analysis. one may be much better than the other under certain conditions and field pressure surveys are the only way to find out. Beggs and Brill13 6. However.

Pressures were measured for flow in tubing sizes ranging from 1 ¼ to 2 7/8 in O. The oils used had viscosities at stock tank conditions of 10. although a correlation for the calculated liquid holdup is presented. 35 and 110 cp. the Griffith4 Correlation was used and when the no slip holdup was greater than the holdup value. A wide range of liquid rates and gas/liquid ratios was included. Thompson added that. Later two adjustments were made to improve this correlation.2 Hagedorn and Brown Method The Hagedorn and Brown3 method was developed by obtaining experimental pressure drop and flow rate data from a 1500 ft deep instrumented well. Hagedorn and 38 .D. The selection of appropriate correlation for a given production system is important to reach to an accurate solution. the no slip holdup was used2.5. calculated slip holdup is sometimes below no-slip holdup and also the acceleration term is too dominant. Moreover. it is not very accurate in bubble flow. However. This Reynolds Number requires a value for H L in the viscosity term. The Hagedorn and Brown method has been found to give good results over a wide range of well conditions and is one of the most widely used well flow correlations in the industry2. Neither liquid holdup nor flow pattern was measured during the Hagedorn and Brown study. When bubble flow existed. In this study. The Hagedorn and Brown Correlation gives best results for wellbores with low to moderate liquid volume fractions (high gasliquid ratios) and relatively high mixture velocities (annular-mist or froth flow). the original Hagedorn and Brown correlation has several weaknesses: At first. while it tended to underpredict slug flow. the modified Hagedorn and Brown Correlation tended to overpredict pressure loss in bubble flow (Griffith). The correlations were developed by assuming that the two-phase friction factor could be obtained from the Moody diagram based on a two-phase Reynolds number. and the effects of liquid viscosity were studied by using water and oil as the liquid phase.

It was decided that the field pressure should be maintained by water injection through peripheral wells –3 and –5 on the Eastern and Western flanks of the field to keep the production wells on natural flow. In 1967. Thus. there are a total of 29 wells with 12 producers. The main drive mechanism of the field is rock and fluid expansion. as a result of high field offtake. in August 1967. In 1966. The field was discovered in 1961 and has been on production since then. Currently. A steep pressure decline in wells was observed during late 1961 and early 1962. water injection was stopped to observe production declines in the field and artificial lift system was installed. 13 closed-in.

III and IV. the deterioration of the reservoir quality is still quite possible. The units having the highest porosities are the dolomite in Unit I and the high porosity limestone close to the bottom of the Unit II. Unit II is described as limestone-dolomitic limestone. The average porosities of this dolomite unit varies between 15% and 20% and the average permeabilities between 6 mD-50mD based on core measurements. The unique pressure response of the W-14 with respect to the rest of the field (pressure measured in W-14 showed slight depletion of only a few hundred psi. 52 . can not be confirmed due to shallow completion of the W-11 which prevents the correlation of two wells because of the long distance between these two wells. Up to date 29 wells have been drilled and two wells are located outside the field (Well-9 and Well-10). and some sub-vertical/subhorizontal fractures also exist.2 Geology The field is an elongated structure in an approximate East–West direction. II. Intercrystalline and vuggy porosities. These units are further subdivided based on lithology (limestone and dolomite) and porosity classes.

This main fault separates two blocks as Main Block and Northern Block and there is an another block called Western Block. when the average reservoir pressure in the rest of the field was more than 1000 psi) may show the existence of a barrier between W-14 and W-11 due to either a fault or reservoir rock quality deterioration (a permeability barrier) between those wells. There is a main continues East-West trending normal fault.

1. gas gravity is 0. This behaviour can be interpreted as reliability of Hagedorn and Brown flow correlation supported by Griffith Correlation should be re-tested at high GLR reservoirs. Another point that should be taken into account during the comparison is that when GLR increases. that is.65. oil API gravity is 35 and average flowing temperature is 150 °F. difference between pressure values of computer output and Beggs&Brill values are also increases. Inspecting Table 7. It should be kept in mind that values determined from Beggs&Brill correlation are recorded at slightly different reservoir and fluid conditions than GK field parameters.1 briefly indicates the pressures at selected depths with respect to two conditions.A comparison was made between pressure traverse curves prepared by Beggs&Brill13 and curves constructed with computer output in order to test the accuracy of correlation used in the program algorithm. 62 . Table 7. This means that vertical multiphase flow correlation within the program is giving reliable output and encurages us about the accuracy of rest of the study. we can understand that computer-based pressures and the Beggs&Brill correlation values are very close to each other.

Reservoir and fluid data of W-08 was used during the study.3 and 7. After making necessary observations for the output. GLR and WOR on flowing bottomhole pressure. sensitivity analysis was performed by observing the effect of oil density.4. 7.2.2 EFFECT of OIL DENSITY on FLOWING BOTTOMHOLE PRESSURES AT SELECTED DEPTHS Well Depth (ft) API 4000 10 2000 6000 2880 8000 3760 10000 4620 15 2000 2880 3760 4620 20 1990 2870 3760 4610 25 1990 2870 3750 4610 30 1990 2870 3750 4610 35 1990 2870 3750 4600 40 1990 2870 3740 4600 64 . it can be observed that the increase in oil density and GLR creates a slight decrease in bottomhole pressure.2. and an increase in WOR causes an increase in flowing bottomhole pressure. Results were summarized in Table 7.

In below figures. It should be noted that actual horsepower requirement data for these wells are not available. These charts can said to be the final step of the study and helped us to make necessary suggestions for optimum pump operating conditions.2. On Figures 7.3 Construction of Possible Production Rate versus Stage and Horsepower Chart for GK Field Wells by Using the Pumping Liquid and Gas Computer Algorithm Possible production rate versus stage and horsepower chart was prepared for each electrical submersible pump lifted wells in GK field by considering the intake pressures obtained from computer program at selected flow rates. 67 . the efficiency range of the pumps used and also suggested flow rate and corresponding horsepower requirement and number of pump stages can be observed. actual value point is the real production rate of the well in GK field and the number of pump stages used for that well.14.7.6 to 7.

740 stb/d rate at 238 stages seem to be a good choice. A production rate of 680 stb/d and a corresponding horsepower requirement of 35 HP and 230 pump stages can be suggested which are close to actual operating values. The rate is within the efficiency range of the pump (833-1792 bpd) and the corresponding pump stages and HP requirement can said to be economical by observing Figure 7.6 it can be observed that beyond 100 stb/d. the horsepower requirement and the number of pump stages increase very fast without a significant gain in the production rate. On the other hand. and a pump stages of 450 can said to be ideal considering the chart. This production rate is higher than the upper limit of pump efficiency range (267-692 bpd). by examining Figure 7. 77 .4 Comparison of Theoretical and Actual Production Parameters and Suggestion for Optimum Pump Operating Conditions by Inspecting Possible Production Rate versus Stage and Horsepower Chart Inspection of Possible Production Rate versus Stage and Horsepower charts for GK field wells let us to make following interpretations: Actual operating rate of W-07 is 180 stb/d with 356 stages. since HP and pump stage curve slope increases significantly with an increase in production rate. however from the Figure 7.7.8.2. W-15 cannot be interpreted due to lack of required data. This operating rate is within the efficiency range (83-458 bpd) of the pump used (DN 440). W-16 is operated with 1350 stb/d with a pump stage of 180. A production rate of 90 stb/d with a horsepower requirement of 40 HP.7. 680 stb/d production rate is useful since it is within the upper limit of efficiency range and providing maximum production rate from W-08. A production rate of 1200 stb/d with a 70 HP and 160 pump stages can be a perfect design and it should be noted that the actual production rate and pump stage values are nearly equal to theoretical values. W-08 is operated with 740 stb/d with 238 stages.

Figure 7.10 shows that the rate is below pump efficiency range (83-458 bpd) and also 320 stages is useless since HP requirement increases significantly. 390 stb/d production rate can be selected with a 18 HP requirement and a pump stages of 212. with 320 stages. Besides. a production rate of 1400 stb/d and a corresponding HP requirement of 100 HP and 220 pump stages can be offered in theorotical circumstances. it can be concluded that the pump is operating at its optimum range (267-692 bpd).W-17 is operated with 1270 stb/d with 181 stages. This rate indicates that the pump is used efficiently (833-1792 bpd).12 shows that the actual operating production rate can be selected higher. 70 stb/d.13. W-28 operates with 530 stb/d within its pump efficiency range (267692 bpd) with 338 stages 680 stb/d production rate with a 28 HP and 192 pump stages can be a good selection. Thus. W-22 produces with a low rate. and the actual and theoretical values are close to each other. 1900 stb/d production rate with a 310 HP and a pump stage of 400 can be suggested for this well but it should be noted that horsepower requirement is too high to be operated in field conditions.9. operating production rate and pump stage values are said to be at optimum range. Examining Figure 7. especially within efficiency range (1834-3417 bpd) of the pump. is acceptable. W-24 produces 1000 stb/d within upper limit of pump efficiency range (500-1125 bpd). W-25 is operated with 1620 stb/d with 239 stages. Pump stage value is 332. and entire actual operating data. Operating with 650 stb/d with a 25 HP and 170 pump stages can be economical. Figure 7. however production rate increases slightly. observing Figure 7. Suggested values can be given as 1050 stb/d production rate with a 32 HP and 270 pump stages. 78 . W-27 has a production rate of 400 stb/d and a pump stage of 338. This well can said to be operated inefficiently.

Results indicated that when dealing with high GLR wells by the help of the computer program. however failed to give accurate values at bubble flow. System optimization is especially important when dealing with gas with liquid rather than producing and pumping only liquid. 3 wells. WOR and GLR on flowing bottomhole pressure which was evaluated with graphical analysis.CHAPTER VIII CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS System Nodal Analysis is an useful method in designing and optimizing a production system having interacting components. Evaluation of possible production rate versus stage and horsepower chart showed that within 10 submersible pump lifted wells. 81 . In this study. In these cases. It should be noted that GK field has a low GOR (15 scf/STB) which allows straight-forward pump designs without a need of detailed optimization procedures. A computer program is also necessary to predict pressure at required depth simultaneously by using vertical multiphase flow correlation. sensitivity analysis was also performed based on the effect of oil gravity. It can be observed from the results that Hagedorn and Brown correlation generally gave acceptable program output when compared with Beggs&Brill Correlation. system analysis should be supported by a computer program to overcome large iterations due to production volume change between pump discharge and intake pressures. This study is useful especially for high GOR submersible pump lifted wells. Application of Nodal Analysis technique to electrical submersible pumps lets production engineers to run the pump more efficiently by selecting optimum flow rate and corresponding number of pump stages and horsepower requirement. Hagedorn and Brown Correlation showed tendency to give less accurate output. W-16. During the study. Griffith Correlation was used when bubble flow conditions were met.

The study gave the writer a chance to suggest optimum operating parameters for each well. it should be kept in mind that actual production rates for the wells in GK field can be different from the optimized values because of the commercial production needs of the oil companies. W08. and W-24 were operated at their optimum range.

Pdischarge Pressure gain.TABLE D5 Relation of Production Parameters With Each Other Comments A high wellhead pressure means a high pump discharge pressure. An increase in production rate results in increase in pressure loss due to friction and related to that increase in discharge pressure Also an increase in production rate decreases the pump head (per stage) which causes a decrease in intake pressure and thus a decrease in pressure gain by pump If number of pump stages will be increased then intake pressure will decrease. more the pressure will be in the wellhead Assuming a constant discharge pressure . These parameters are directly proportional with discharge pressure Pressure gained by pump (Pdischarge.Pintake) increases with an increase in number of pump stage however in this case pump requires more horsepower Pressure loss in the tubing is directly related to production rate. High production rates results in high-pressure losses. More the pump increases the pressure from intake to discharge value. pump will increase the intake pressure to higher discharge pressure for lifting the fluid Wellhead Pressure.e.
