1. Production Optimization

    Under-optimization of gas lifted wells can reduce achievable production by more than 40%. DIAL realizes this optimization uplift continuously and automatically.

  2. Deeper Injection

    Conventional gas lift methods do not fully utilize available lift gas injection pressure. DIAL does, enabling deeper injection at higher rates with the same available compressor horsepower.

  3. Accelerated Recovery

    Dial accelerates reserve recovery, particularly in wells with rapid decline rates, such as unconventional shale plays. Real-time changes to injection rate and depth, as reservoir pressure declines and water cut increases, can be made remotely without intervention.

  4. Reduced Uncertainty

    DIAL delivers in-well production flowing gradient data in real time. This is used to correlate multi-phase flow nodal analysis models and as input to production optimization algorithms. They can aid production and reservoir management decision making without having to resort to intervention-based production logging.

  5. Gas Allocation

    Achieving optimal lift gas injection is difficult with conventional gas lift systems. DIAL’s continuous monitoring and control of pressure and injection rates enables more precise distribution of lift gas in multi-well systems. That means more production using less gas.

  6. Reduced OPEX

    DIAL gas lifted wells can be continually optimized remotely and, most significantly, without intervention. DIAL not only cuts down on wireline interventions and well tests; avoiding deferred production and HSE risks also create significant savings.

  7. Increased Reserves

    The combination of accelerated recovery, reduced production deferment, reduced intervention and lower OPEX typically mean a DIAL well can produce for longer than conventional gas-lifted wells.

  8. HSE

    DIAL units can be monitored and controlled completely remotely. This negates the need for frequent well site visits and interventions and enables un-manned offshore installation.

  9. Enhanced Reliability

    Conventional gas lift technology has improved significantly over the 70 or so years since its introduction. But, with its reliance on periodic downhole pressure surveys and wireline interventions to change valves and orifices, it remains notoriously unreliable. DIAL addresses all the reliability limiting aspects of conventional technology.

  10. No Intervention

    Conventional gas lift systems rely on costly and risky well interventions to maintain them and optimize performance. Money lost through deferred production increases that cost. DIAL eliminates in-well gas lift system intervention. That can be a huge cost saving particularly in deep-water, subsea and extended reach wells.
