PROJECT DESCRIPTION

N-Line Tools installed its downhole paraffin heater treater in a producing well with known paraffin problems. The well has been on production for three months.

PURPOSE

The purpose of the test was to verify the effectiveness of a new downhole heater treater to reduce paraffin buildup in downhole production equipment, flowlines and production facilities.

RESULTS

Prior to the installation of the tool average production rate on this well was 16.70 BPD, with oil cut of @ 10%. It appears that with the tool running total fluid increased to 21.67 BPD, with the oil cut reaching at times 20%. THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF PARAFFIN BUILDUP IN THE FLOWLINES.

BENEFITS

This equipment should be used in other similar type well and I believe, based on the recorded data that the increase in production was due to at least three factors. 1) continued proper operation of the insert type pump due to no paraffin buildup, 2) the higher downhole temperatures resulted in the clogged perforations being opened to their original aperture, and 3) the heater generated enough heat to prevent paraffin precipitation at some distance from the perforation resulting in a larger productive surface area and higher total production.
