Founder Speaking at SPE Thermal Well Integrity and Production Symposium
The SPE Thermal Well Integrity and Production Symposium, attended by industry experts and professionals, has provided a platform for Greg Montie, founder of Rotoliptic, to showcase the remarkable capabilities and potential of this groundbreaking pump.
The Rotoliptic (RTI) represents a major leap forward in artificial lift technology, with the increasing challenges faced in thermal production, such as energy consumption, water usage, and the handling of varying viscosity and high gas-liquid ratios, the industry has been eagerly anticipating an innovative solution. Greg Montie's presentation highlighted how the RTI addresses these challenges and paves the way for enhanced efficiency, reduced costs, and improved environmental sustainability.
The key features of the Rotoliptic pump will be outlined during the presentation, emphasizing its unique design and functional capabilities. The pump's configurability in axial loading allows it to adapt to the demanding conditions of thermal wells, while its increased rod string capacity enables smooth operation even in deep and complex well scenarios. Field trials and rigorous bench testing have provided compelling evidence of the RTI's exceptional performance. Results from successful field trials conducted in Canada and the United States, utilizing advanced material rotor and stator pairings, confirmed the pump's superior volumetric and mechanical efficiencies.
A comparative analysis between the Rotoliptic and a standard all-metal progressive cavity pump (PCP) further highlighted the advantages of this revolutionary pump. In-house testing revealed the RTI's superior efficiency, reliability, and cost-effectiveness, solidifying its position as a preferred choice for thermal applications. By addressing the industry's pain points and offering unmatched performance, the R-PDP is poised to transform thermal production and enhance overall operational efficiency.
As Rotoliptic plans further field trials in 2023, the future looks promising for this groundbreaking technology. The introduction of the RTI opens up new possibilities for operators, providing them with the benefits of all-metal construction without the drawbacks associated with traditional artificial lift methods. With its potential to improve energy efficiency, reduce water consumption, and enhance production outcomes, Rotoliptic is poised to shape the future of thermal applications in the oil and gas industry.
