DIAL can be applied in several completion architectures to optimize gas lift production from single and multi-zone reservoirs in onshore, offshore and subsea operating environments.
DIAL gas lift units strategically spaced to enable unload and life-of-well lift gas optimization. DIAL sensing units included to provide bottom-hole flowing pressure reference for optimization.
DIAL gas lift units in each production string enable complete and independent monitoring and control of both strings. DIAL sensing units between producing zones inform production management decisions
Currently in the concept phase, DIAL gas lift and sensing units are installed in existing well without workover.
DIAL gas lift units control flow of lift gas from an in-situ gas formation to the tubing string negating the need to provide lift gas from surface.
DIAL gas lift and sensing units can be deployed in subsea applications, enabling production optimization and avoiding costly well intervention.
At the system level, DIAL adds value on ten dimensions.
In comparison to existing gas lift technology, DIAL overcomes six primary application challenges to increase production by up to 40%, dependent on application type:
