Implementation of Multiphase Pumping Systems in Fields of the AIATG

The PEMEX reservoirs of the fields at Activo Integral Aceite Terciario del Golfo (AIATG) are stratified, lenticular, heterogenous and discontinuous sands with a pushing mechanism by means of disolved gas, low-productivity-index wells and fast depletion rate. These conditions pose a great challenge for the implementation of the multiphase pumping technology taking into account its dynamic conditions.

A technological demonstration was realized using a twin-screw multiphase pumping system in one of the production pads. The results demonstrated the feasibility of using the technology to extend the operation life of the wells as well as increasing the production of hydrocarbons.
