The mechanical differences and associated challenges of CSG production– including dealing with solids, turbulent flow conditions, gas locking, pulling the water down below the bend of a horizontal well, and others – demanded products and service changes to meet these differences.
It was also apparent that the economics of CSG were very different from the oil industry and therefore using the same products were cost prohibitive. Global has met the mechanical and the economic challenges by developing specific cost-effective products and developing new processes and procedures for this industry.
A new product for a new industry
For many years electric submersible pumps (ESPs) had been viewed as products best suited for high volume wells, and are still excellent pumping platforms to accomplish that. Due to years of experience and development, Global has developed CSG systems that are also capable at low levels of production – down to 50 barrels per day.
