Objective: An operator needed artificial lift using a jet pump in a highly corrosive environment where producing fluid up the casing is not an option with any type of lift. The well makes 4% CO2 and 5,000 ppm (0.5%) H2S.
Results: The operator installed a JJ Tech reverse flow jet pump where power oil can be treated with inhibitors on the surface and injected down the casing. Power oil and all formation gas and liquids are produced up the tubing.
Advantages of Jet Pump vs. Rod Pump
• JJ Tech jet pumps can produce moderate to high volumes of sand.
• Gas can be brought to the market immediately.
• No back pressure is put on formation (as with nitrogen).
• Software can calculate PBHP based on production volumes.
