Thermoflex tubing for esp applications for the oil and gas industry

Thermoflex Tubing for ESP Applications for the Oil and Gas Industry

The use of reinforced polymer tubing with ESP’s to minimize cost and maximize productivity


Benefits of thermoflex tubing for cbm applications

Benefits of Thermoflex Tubing for CBM Applications

  • Sized to Lift Solids without Excessive Pressure drop

  • Corrosion Resistance

  • Ease and Speed of Installation

  • Suitable for Water/Oil/Condensate

  • Lightweight Tubing Protects Cable


Requirements to lift solids

Requirements to Lift Solids

  • Liquid Velocity Greater than 2ft/sec

  • Plastics Reduce Pressure drop vs. Steel.

  • Must Dispose of Solids at Surface


Reduced pressure drop

Reduced Pressure Drop

  • Surface Roughness

    • Steel . . . .005

    • Nylon . . . .00005

  • Increased Velocity Increases Pressure Drop

  • Polymers 50% Lower Pressure Drop at Greater Velocities


Improved corrosion resistance vs steel

Improved Corrosion Resistance vs. Steel

  • Oil/Gas/CO2/Brine Nylon

  • H2S or High Temp (250F) Fortron (PPS)

  • No Polyethylene

Service Life in H2S Environment

Liner construction design

Liner Construction & Design

  • Multi-layer Design

    • Inner Layer for Corrosion Resistance, Low Permeation and Higher Temp Strength . . . Nylon and Fortron

    • Outer Layer for Higher Temperature Strength, Abrasion Resistance

  • Fully Bonded

  • Applications to 250F

Inner Barrier

Outer Strength and

Abrasion Layer


Reinforced design and construction

Reinforced Design and Construction

  • Reinforcement Provides All of the Strength

    • Cross Braids for Burst

    • Longitudinal Braids for Stretch Resistance

    • Aramid Fibers for Low Elongation

  • Tubing Strength P=(2*F*n)/D*L


Couplings and terminations

Couplings and Terminations

  • Couplings Swedged on Both Ends

  • Duplex Stainless or Zinc Chromate Plated Carbon Steel

  • Any Thread or Connection Available

  • Swedged in the Field or Plant


Portable coupling machines

Portable Coupling Machines

  • 1” to 4.5” Couplings

  • Hand Pump or Enerpac


Modeling wells for optimal tubing size

Modeling Wells for Optimal Tubing Size

  • Tubing Sized for Fluid Velocity (bbl/day vs ft/sec)

  • Pressure Drop Curves to Determine Dynamic Head

  • Dynamic Head for Sizing Pump


Installation

Installation

  • Continuous Tubing

  • Direct Drive Spooling Truck

  • Cable Banded to Tubing

  • Hang off with Tubing Hanger or Stuffing Box


Installation equipment

Installation Equipment


Attaching the pump

Attaching the Pump


Banding the cable to the tubing

Banding The Cable To The Tubing

  • Rubber or Tape Under Bands

    • Plastic on Metal Slips

    • Holds Items Prior to Banding

  • Band Every 50ft

  • 500lb or less Compression Load


Hanging off

Hanging Off

  • Utilize Steel Tubing Hangers, Stuffing Box

  • Cable Pack Off

  • Tubing Lightweight Protecting Cable from Abrasion


Installation timing

Installation Timing

  • 40Minutes for 1,800ft Well after Splice

  • If Pulling Pump lift cable at same rate

  • Can’t Spool Cable and Tubing Together


Why it works

Why it Works

  • 1” Thermoflex . . . 1/2bbl Fluid per 1,200ft

  • Velocity Lifts Solids

  • Size vs. Fluid Flow

    • 1” . . . 250bbl/day

    • 1.25” . . . 600bbl/day

    • 1.5” . . . 1,500bbl/day
