  • This paper will explain the mechanism of the sand regulator as well as the benefit of installing this system alone above the pump or complemented with a sand control system below the pump. The candidate wells to this integrated solution were selected from MMV (Middle Magdalena Valley) and Putumayo Basins, in Colombia. The wells had sand problems history and it was necessary to review pump designs, pulling reports and sensor parameters. Well conditions such as production, tubing size, and particle size distribution were analyzed to build the best design for every single well. In the design the geometry of the well was assessed to accommodate the cable and CT (Capillary tube) line downhole.

    The ADN Field in Colombia is characterized by heavy oil production (API between 13-18°), with fluid production between 1,000-2,000 BFPD, with a viscosity of 270 - 3090 cP @ 122°F, water cuts oscillating depending on the waterflooding effect (Between 1% to 95%) and high fine sand production (200 – 24,000 ppm). The CH Field wells produce between 1,000 – 6,000 BFPD, with API between 17-20°, high water cuts (> 77%) and a high sand production between 100 – 3,000 ppm. The wells selected had other type of sand control and management systems and were highly affected by frequent shutdowns. The Sand Regulator design was installed in 20 wells and was compared with the performance achieved using traditional sand control solutions. After the installation, production has remained stable in all the wells applied, allowing to reduce the PIP of the well of up to 400 psi. Less current consumption has been observed after each shutdown in all the wells, extending the run life of some wells up to double the average. Sensor parameters were analyzed after each pump restart to determine how difficult it was to restart operation after shutdowns.

    Compared to the tools installed above the ESP, this sand regulator allows flushing operation through it with flow ranges from 0.5 to 5 bpm. In addition, the unconventional design of this tool has opened the door to a new concept of ESP protection that works in wells with light or heavy oil and can be refurbished or inspected completely without cutting the tool.

  • A revolutionary packer-type gas separator was designed to improve downhole gas separation efficiency. A deep analysis of gas separation methods was done to understand the process's nature and design a tool that could generate enhanced conditions for the gas separation phenomenon.

    During the research stages where data from Permian fields were analyzed to develop this new design of gas separator, the engineering team found three main challenges in downhole gas separation. First, the wells were converted from Electrical Submersible Pump (ESP) to Rod Pumps earlier, forcing the downhole gas separators to handle more production. Second, the small production casing size usually is 5.5" casing, which significantly reduces the annulus area, which is vital to get an effective gas separation efficiency, and third the gas slugging behavior, which in high proportion can lead to a gas lock-in sucker rod pump system. A packer-type gas separator was designed, built, and tested in multiple wells following the requirements and limitations. This gas separator has an outlet section of 1.89" O.D., which means the design maximizes the gas separation area where it really matters at the fluid outlet point. The revolutionary fluid exit slots design creates a linear flow path allowing gas to separate and flow upward the casing annulus in a natural way. Additionally, a valve below the cup packer was included to eliminate surging. This valve prevents surging by holding the fluid in the vertical section, thus avoiding backflow when the gas slug leaves liquids behind. A calculator was developed to estimate the gas separation efficiency downhole and compare the gas separation efficiency among different gas separators to evaluate the new design. After the implementation of this design in 5 wells, the results confirmed the high gas separation efficiency obtained with this new gas separator configuration. The novelty of this gas separator design is the outlet section that takes advantage of the gravity force to increase the gas separation efficiency without limiting the tensile strength of the Bottom Hole Assembly (BHA).

  • ESP Sand Lift
    The protection your ESPs needs...

  • Odessa  Separator’s ESP Sand Lift provides extended ESP run times through improved downhole sand management.  
    It is installed above the ESP discharge, where, upon start-up, the unique OSI  dart,  sand-breaker  uses  differential  pressure  to  push the fluid  and entrained solids through tubular ports in one flow path, to the surface

    - Prevent workovers due to sand failures.
    - Extends run times by regulating the rate of falling sand.
    - Backflush operations are carried out easily.
    - Housing is highly sand-resistant.

  • ESP Vortex Regulator
    Increase pumping efficiency and decrease operating costs...

  • Slug Flow is widely recognized as being the main difficulty in trying to efficiently produce high GOR horizontal wells. Sand is usually present in these types of wells, adding to the problems created by the severe gas interference of slug flow.

    The ESP VORTEX REGULATOR represents proprietary technology designed to regulate the gas slugs and separate sand prior to reaching the ESP. 

    The Vortex Regulator reduces repair and maintenance costs by preventing mechanical damage to the pump caused by gas locking and sand.  Operating costs are reduced through greater pumping efficiency and increased production with less downtime for repairs.


    - Reduced downtime for repairs

    - Better pump efficiency

    - Greater production rates

    - Stabilized pump operation: vibration, frequency, voltage, motor current.
