New Technology from Camcon

Wednesday, April 26, 2006
Camcon Technology unveiled a new technology application designed to increase the volume of oil that can be recovered from the world's reservoirs as well as reduce operating costs. Developed specifically for the oil and gas industry, the Camcon Intelligent Gas Lift configuration is part of Camcon binary actuator Technology (BAT). The application aims to enhance the recovery of oil from reservoirs by introducing gas injection management capabilities to improve extraction flow. Oil fields start their lives with sufficient geo-pressure, allowing for efficient extraction of oil. However, as extraction proceeds and geo-pressure drops, artificial lift has to be employed. It is estimated that up to half the world's oil wells currently require artificial lift. The volume of oil lifted by gas injection is determined by the size and frequency of the gas bubbles injected. Traditionally, the valve settings are fixed and based on best estimates, frequently causing bubble sizes and the amount of gas injected to be too little or too great, creating an inefficient method of extraction. The Camcon Intelligent Gas Lift configuration can monitor oil flow rates, consider external conditions such as pressure and temperature. It can also adjust both bubble size and bubble frequency to respond to the flow characteristics encountered and so achieve maximum lifted flow volumes at all times. This Camcon technology can be implemented in other industries where fluid application processes demand accurate, repetitive dosing that can be modified to suit prevailing conditions, such as crop spraying in agriculture, 'pulse sorting' in food processing, and medical and pharmaceutical dosing.
