Improving Operations and Avoiding Methane Emissions: Interview with Paul Munding, Flogistix

What is your name and relationship to the oil industry?

My name is Paul Munding, and I am the Vice President of Petroleum Engineering at Flogistix. I have over 15 years of experience in the industry. Ten of those years were spent at Chesapeake, with three years in the reservoir department in the Permian Basin and seven years with completions and production duties across the Mid-Continent. I then worked at RKI/WPX, as the production engineering manager over the Delaware Basin asset. I joined the Flogistix team in April of 2016 to start a petroleum engineering department that helps operators focus on solutions using Flogistix equipment and expertise. Working in production over the last ten years, I have seen the need for advancements in production technology that can help the production engineer manage wells more efficiently. Flogistix has the technology to address a wide spectrum of production issue: unloading marginal gas wells, improving production of artificial lift methods, and vapor recovery.

What is the history of Flogistix, and how did it get involved in unconventional plays, including shale plays?

Flogistix acquired Fluid Compressor Partners in 2011. Fluid Compressor Partners had a history dating back to 1996 that included building liquid rings for the Raton Basin and Texas panhandle fields in the Hugoton Basin. In the 2000s, screw compressors gradually became the preference as greater discharge pressure could be achieved at the same suction as liquid rings. They introduced programmable logic controllers (PLC) to control gas engine drive compressors in 2007. In late 2009, Fluid Compressor began using screw compressors in vapor recovery applications. After acquiring Fluid Compressor, Flogistix invested knowledge in vapor recovery application technology. With this new knowledge, the PLC was tailored to control the compressor while measuring vapor amounts in ounces at the stock tank or vapor recovery tower (VRT).

With the advanced controls geared towards vapor recovery, Flogistix was a good fit for the capture of vapors associated with the Niobrara wells of the DJ Basin. This basin became very active by 2011, as more operators extended the play out in Weld County, Colorado. The Niobrara wells produce high gravity oil along with wet gas. The wet gas is composed of raw natural gas (primarily CH4) and natural gas liquids (NGL). These NGLs are the gaseous components consisting of ethane, propane, butane, pentane, and heavier molecular weight hydrocarbons (HC). Pentane and higher molecular HC are considered condensate. As the wells produce fluids to the surface, cooling takes place allowing the condensate components to drop out of the wet gas in primary separators at high pressure slightly above gathering line pressure. The condensate and oil will then often go to a vapor recovery tower or stock tank where pressure is near atmosphere, allowing gases to flash off the liquid as vapors. The gas vapors captured in these towers is very rich in NGLs, with as high as 3200 MBTU content observed per MCF. The gas flashed at low pressure is unable to get into the high pressure sales gathering line and this is where the Flogistix screw compressor is utilized. It will pull the vapors off of the VRT or stock tanks depending on the design of the facility and boost them into the sales line. Our compressors are a good fit for this application since they can pull towers down to ounces and can discharge as high as 365 psig. By year end of 2013, Flogistix had become the preferred vapor recovery vendor in the DJ Basin. Flogistix has now taken this knowledge achieved to apply to their installs in the other unconventional basins of the Eagleford, Permian, and Anadarko.

What kind of equipment does Flogistix specialize in, and how is it used in wells in shales and unconventionals?

Flogistix manufactures screw compressor packages primarily to fit vapor recovery and wellhead applications. In addition to vapor recovery, as explained earlier, the compressor can do multiple roles for wells by reducing flowing wellhead pressures. With unconventional wells this is often in the form of assisting artificial lift methods. This includes drawing the gas off of the casing to improve fluid flow up the Tbg in ESP and sucker rod applications. Downhole pumps are not meant to handle large amounts of gas and become very inefficient as gas percentage increases. By pulling the pressure on the casing down, it allows gas to vent up the casing annulus. The downhole pump can then ingest primarily fluid and increase production on the well. The life of the equipment is significantly improved and can mean the savings of hundreds of thousands of dollars in failed pump expenses due to gas handling. Flogistix recently set a compressor doing a casing drawdown of an ESP in the Anadarko basin. It was a success and the operator was able to prolong the life of their ESP equipment. Look for this case study to be published soon with more details.

Plunger lift is another form of lift that our compressors can be utilized to assist for unconventional WH applications. As unconventional gas wells decline, they lose bottomhole pressure and continue to need larger buildup of differential pressure across their casing and tubing string to raise a plunger to surface. By setting our compressor on the Tbg, we can lower the surface pressure that the plunger has to rise against and effectively reduce the differential pressure needed to make a trip. This in turn allows the plunger to make more trips per day. Through our own developed Logix PLC panel, the skid manages control of the compressor by monitoring the pressure upstream of the suction side. Flogisitix compressors have managed as many as four wells on one Pad in a plunger assist application. Operators in the DJ Basin have successfully used this process to achieve as high as 80% increases in production. One such operator has now made it a standard practice across the basin for their operations.

There are tough new methane emission standards. How does Flogistix equipment help prevent fugitive methane emissions?
Flogistix works with operators in planning their facilites from the beginning. This is an important step to make sure facilities are sized to handle not just daily production, but instantaneous slug rates at the vessels. Proper sizing of pipe and routing is also crucial to deliver the maximum obtainable capture of the flash gas. The flexibility of Flogistix equipment allows for vapor recovery and WH assist solutions for the life of a well. An operator can capture vapors over time at lower volumes of production by adjusting the control set point of the compressor on the Logix PLC. The VRT allows the operator to bring this setpoint down to two ounces and lower versus the six ounce minimum threshold on most stock tanks.

If a well has declined in flash gas volume to the point where spare capacity is available on the compressor, then the MultistreamTM function can be used on the Logix PLC to let the compressor collect gas from two different sources. For instance, an operator could begin to pull gas off of his csg to help his ESP as well as continue to capture vapors flashing off of their oil tanks, even at lower production rates. Despite these small rates, capturing fugitive emissions across thousands of wells can make up millions of cubic feet of gas, while also allowing the industry to be good stewards of the environment. Some operators choose to combust or flare their flash gas but improper operation of this equipment can lead to emissions of methane and VOCs, thus resulting in heavy fines. Proper operation of these control devices often gets overlooked with lease operators having multiple wells and lots of equipment to track. In the end, vapor recovery is the only solution that captures the energy rather than wasting it, while still keeping the regional air quality high for residents and animals.

What are some of Flogistix’s new capabilities and areas of opportunities for operators who have new and existing oil and gas production?

We have several new products within our company that have us very excited for operators. One is our composite coil tubing (CCT) service that we offer. This CCT can be installed in older wells that have loaded up as velocity strings. The beauty of the installation is it can be done in a day, at half the cost of conventional steel coil and without all of the corrosion issues. The coil can be run inside Tbg and then easily hung off in the Tbg head with an adapter. Flow can then be up the insided diameter of the CT or the annulus between it and the Tbg. Gas could also be injected down this annulus to provide lift assistance for the well. Flogistix has already done several of these successful operations for horizontal wells in the Marcellus Shale of West Virginia. Most of these wells are three to five years old and are loading up in the 250-600 MCFD rates, with 400 psig line pressure. This application can also be done in the Barnett where line pressures run between 100-150 psig, with wells starting to load in the 100 – 250 MCFD range.

The other new product that is about to launch for Flogistix, is our intelligent gas lift compressor. The reciprocating compressor will be controlled by our own Logix PLC. It will use information given by the well to calculate the necessary injection rate to achieve the minimum bottom hole pressure (BHP), resulting in maximum acheivable well production. The Logix PLC will obtain the injection rate by varying speed and throttling its own automated suction control valve, while monitoring its own gas injection meter. This will allow the compressor to achieve the injection rate at the most efficient setting to burn less fuel gas and save more money for the operator as well. This compressor skid like all others in the Flogistix fleet, will have its diagnostics available to be seen live on FLUX. With FLUX, a customer has a secure webpage to view all of their unit’s data live and up to the minute. All compressor data is stored for the length of the compressor set, allowing trends and predictive analysis be used to control the machine.

As one can see, Flogistix is always working to help operators look for new and cost effective ways to maximize their production and net revenue. We will work closely with any customer to develop and ensure our processes are as expected, and up to their standards.

Reservoir Knowledge Essential for Equipment Selection in Today’s Hot Plays: Interview with Paul Munding

It is incredibly important to match the reservoir types with equipment such as compressors. Such is particularly the case in the new “hybrid” unconventional plus conventional plays in the Delaware Basin of the Permian and the STACK play of Oklahoma. Welcome to an interview with Paul Munding, Flogistix (http://flogistix.com/), who explains how geological knowledge is essentially in optimizing production equipment.

What is your name and relationship to the oil industry?

My name is Paul Munding, and I am the Vice President of Petroleum Engineering at Flogistix. I have over 15 years of experience in the industry. Ten of those years were spent at Chesapeake, with three years in the reservoir department in the Permian Basin and seven years with completions and production duties across the Mid-Continent. I then worked at RKI/WPX as the production engineering manager over the Delaware Basin asset. During my career I have seen a lot of technology developed in the drilling and completions realm, but not as much on the production side of the business. Working in production over the last ten years, I have seen the need for advancements in production technology that can help the production engineer manage wells more efficiently. Flogistix has the technology to address a wide spectrum of production issues, from vapor recovery to marginal wells that have become loaded.

What kind of products do you have in the oil field?

Our company is multi-faceted, but our main products are rotary screw compressor packages for the oil and gas industry. Flogistix also launched a Downhole Services division last year that provides a lower cost alternative to cleaning out marginal wells with Coil Tubing. We have also manufactured well stream cooler packages that can cool produced fluids from single or multi-well pads, insuring that the products can be delivered underneath pipeline specs. Our entire skid packages, whether compressor or cooler, come outfitted with our Logix PLC and FLUX automation. The Logix allows users to program algorithms to specifically control compressor functionality according to their well needs. This allows the compressor to manage multiple task on one well site. We call this function Multi-Stream™ and customers only have the cost of one machine on site rather than two or three.
How important are the new compressors in today’s shale and stacked pay plays?

Our compressor packages are a perfect fit in the modern source rock play. Most of these formations produce very high gravity crude. As such, they also have liquids rich gas vapors that vent at atmospheric conditions. When using our compressor in vapor recovery mode, it can capture these high BTU vapors for customers, which allow them to profit on the capture of these emissions. In basins such as the DJ, this gas can be as high as 3200 BTU. Without capture of these vapors, operators do not realize the profit stream and also expose themselves to penalties of falling out of compliance with state and federal regulations. The use of vapor recovery also shows the operators as good stewards of the environment and communities, as much development has become closer to urban settings. The units also become critical to producing wells at lower BHPs when running artificial lift type ESP and sucker rod pumping systems. These pumps are great at reducing BHP but do not handle high gas cuts well. The gas gets trapped in the pumps and can often lead to reduced efficiencies and costly failures. We can pull gas out of the wells by setting a rotary screw compressor on the casing head of the wells on pump. This allows the casing to be a giant separator and the operator often sees better gas separation and increased production results. It is not uncommon in these type of applications to see the cost of the compressor being paid out in a couple of days due to the significant amount of uplift generated with a casing drawdown.

Why does it matter what kind of reservoir you have when you’re selecting a pump or compressor?

It is important to know that most reservoirs will be compatible with compression. Only a few, that have proven to be pressure dependent on permeability, would not be ideal candidates to use compression to lower the BHP. Those types of reservoirs, like the Haynesville, need a minimum amount of backpressure to keep the insitu-stress from closing the fracture and significantly reducing permeability. Most reservoirs respond very favorably to compression and even reducing wellhead pressure by 100 psig on shale wells can be the difference needed to unload fluids.

What are some of the benefits of having a multi-use compressor?

Our equipment match comes down to each particular reservoir’s stage of life. Early on, we can pull high vapor emissions off of horizontal flowing wells. Then, once the wells go on artificial lift, we can use the compressors to assist the well according to the lift type. On an ESP or pumping unit, the compressor can be used to pull gas off of the casing head. If the well does not make as much fluid and has been put on plunger lift, then our compressor can be used in conjunction with the plunger to allow the plunger to rise against a lower wellhead pressure. Our compressor can go into recycle mode as the plunger falls, and be ready to assist instantaneously upon another trip. These compressors have also done this plunger assist mode on multi-well pads, and have assisted up to four different wells on plunger with a single compressor. If there is an upset condition with the sales line, we have a swab mode that can be activated on the PLC to shut in the well and prevent it from loading up.
What are some of the new directions you are seeing?

Huge growth is currently occurring by using PLCs to manage well sites on their own, through machine learning. Our FLUX program captures all 53 data points on each of our compressors, once a minute, and then streams it to a Cloud server. The customer is given a login to our FLUX webpage where they can view all of their units in real time and trend the data looking for issues. This allows our data science team to rake this data looking for patterns that cause issues. The data science teams can then write code and send it out to all of our units, allowing the PLC to fix these issues on the fly without any physical presence by a technician. We also have a very talented engineering team that has designed these units and have been with the company over 15 years. The functionality that has been built into these units is unrivaled in the industry. One such feature is our Air Fuel Ratio emissions control which is monitored on our motors via the PLC. Through the engine speed and manifold pressure, we can adjust the O2 sensor readings through a nine point interpolation method.

Oklahoma City-based Flogistix launches Downhole Services division

Company offers capabilities unique to Mid-Continent, including composite coiled tubing and nitrogen pumping

 

OKLAHOMA CITY – Flogistix, LP, a leading manufacturer and well optimization service provider to the domestic onshore oil and gas industry, recently launched a new Downhole Services division. The Oklahoma City-based company now offers services including composite coiled tubing, steel tubing, nitrogen membrane service, artificial lift installation, and purging and pressure testing of vessels at gas plants and pipelines. Flogistix will have unique capabilities in the Mid-Continent with this type of equipment.

 

“Downhole services are a perfect complement to our existing offerings at Flogistix and will provide efficiencies and cost-savings for our clients,” said Mims Talton, CEO of Flogistix. “We are always looking for ways to improve our clients’ well productivity, and this state-of-the-art technology and equipment will continue to set us apart from the competition.”

 

A particular differentiator for the Flogistix Downhole Services division are the composite coil tubing unit (CCTU) and nitrogen membrane unit (NMU).

 

The CCTU provides safe and efficient live well intervention, simple mobilization and rig-up, and the ability to circulate fluids while moving tubing up and down inside the wellbore. CCTU applications include well unloading, cleanouts, spotting chemicals (such as acid), sales and installation of low horse power electric submersible pumps, and gas lift/velocity strings.

 

“The CCTU is typically a fraction of the cost of conventional coil tubing units,” Talton said. “It is smaller in size and weighs less, making it more nimble than conventional coil units and allowing it to be transported without weight permits. Further, the composite tubing is less susceptible to stress cycle fatigue and reduces the risk of downhole failures and unnecessary replacement.”

 

On average, membrane nitrogen is half the cost of liquid nitrogen and is created by separating the nitrogen from the oxygen on-site, which makes the NMU more affordable, safer and convenient than liquid nitrogen. It also has a smaller environmental footprint and requires fewer operating personnel, which reduces logistical issues.
