The Challenge

When it comes to resolving an effective artificial lift strategy over a horizontal well’s life cycle, there are many complications and compromises. Production Plus has developed a system that addresses some of the most common challenges in horizontal wells – giving you the freedom to optimize your artificial lift strategy over the life of the well.

High total well capital expenses

Horizontal wells often have complex drilling profiles and require transitions through multiple lift systems after the natural flow period. Oversized pumping equipment is frequently required to deal with deep wells and inefficient production.

High operating
expenses

The sluggy flow, gas and solids common in horizontal wells cause frequent pump failures, excessive downtime and significant workover costs. Deep pump placement and low pump efficiency drive up energy consumption.

Production and reserves not maximized

Producers are often unable to maximize production and reserves. This is because horizontal wells experience inadequate drawdown due to lift system limitations, and pump placement hinders their ability to pump off the well to very low bottomhole pressures.

Production Plus HEAL System™

The Solution: The HEAL System

After 8 years of research and field trials, Production Plus discovered that the key to solving artificial lift challenges is to smooth flow. With smooth flow, artificial lift systems are able to perform more efficiently and more reliably.

Production Plus invented the HEAL System™ specifically to smooth flow from horizontal wells. The HEAL System is a patent-pending downhole solution that easily joins to the horizontal as part of a standard well completion. By conditioning the flow from the horizontal, the System enables you to maximize drawdown and minimize costs over the life of the well.
