Solutions to Separate, Process, Avoid, and Control Gas in Production
Protection in high gas ratio wells ensures stable, reliable ESP operation. Valiant’s INTERCEPT™ portfolio of gas solutions combines proven gas handling technologies with applications expertise.
Solutions that extend system run life and ensure efficient, uninterrupted operations are an essential part of a successful ESP strategy in unconventional applications.
Vortex and Rotary Gas Separators
When installed at the pump intake, gas separators use centrifugal force to isolate and remove large bubbles from the fluid mixture. Our INTERCEPT™ gas separators are available in Rotary or Vortex designs in a variety of configurations for your specific conditions.
|SERIES||MODEL||MAX PRODUCTION RATE¹||PRODUCTION EFF. IN 25% GVF²|
|338||Rotary||2,700 bpd||1,850 bpd / 89.2%|
|400||Rotary||2,000 bpd||1,400 bpd / 89.4%|
|400||Vortex||4,800 bpd||2,500 bpd / 86%|
|513||Vortex||9,000 bpd||5,000 bpd / 86.4%|
² Based on water production under nominal testing conditions
Above the separator, a gas handler breaks up the remaining bubbles and homogenizes fluid up to encourage natural lift. Each model is designed with a fixed stage count and can be run with or without a gas separator.
|400||VCGH 1550||380-1550 bpd|
|400||VCGH 2300||750-2300 bpd|
|538||VEGH 4500||2250-4500 bpd|
|538||VEGH 9500||4500-9500 bpd|
Proprietary VSD Anti-Gas-Locking Software
In order to help control gas management, Valiant PULSE® Variable Speed Drives are programmed with proprietary gas lock prevention software. Reaction Delay and Gas Lock Prevention timers can automatically reduce the frequency of the drive to allow gas slugs to move through the pump.
Designed to monitor key ESP Inputs
- Potential gas loads
- Motor amperage
- Intake and Discharge Pressure
Faltering Production Restored With ESP Gas Lock Programming
By combining “graybeard” field experience with proprietary gas lock programming and Variable Speed Drive (VSD) controls, Valiant was able to help one operator stop daily shutdowns on ESP wells and increase system uptime.
