Low Pressure Production Unit (LPPU)
Effective Solution for Low Pressure Oil Wells
Pressure depletion is an issue faced by almost every maturing oil field across the world. As wellhead platforms are usually small and unmanned, it is often not economical to retrofit existing facilities to accommodate these low pressure wells due to constraints of space, weight and/or cost, and so these wells are usually idle or shut-in and their oil inventory is unrecovered.
LPPU is a cost effective system designed to boost the pressure of production fluids from low pressure oil wells in mature fields. The system operates at very low pressure such that it exerts minimal backpressure on the wells. This increases the production and extends the well life by allowing it to continue producing even with a FTHP near to atmospheric pressure.
The system is designed with a fully automated intricate isolation methodology such that it can receive continuous full flow from the well, and still manages to operate in batches to deliver the oil to the production header.
This technology has been jointly developed, patented, and successfully deployed with PETRONAS.
