IHS Subpump: Day 1 / Part 1
- SubPUMP at a glance
- System Analysis and Artificial Lift Review (Nodal Analysis)
- Pressure and Head
- TDH Calculation
- PVT Data Sources Used by SubPUMP
- Steps for an Optimum ESP installation
- Critical Operating Conditions (How parameters like viscosity, water cut, and free gas at pump intake affect the pump performance – pump curves.)
IHS Subpump: Day 1 / Part 2
- SUBPUMP main features (Menus and Windows)
- System Preferences options
- Analysis setting
- System Components and correlations
- Required Information and Data
- Equipment Dialog Box
- Pressure/Rates Dialog Box
- Explanation of all Output Reports and Graphs
IHS Subpump: Day 2 / Part 3
- Problem Set. Design and analysis of ESP installations are illustrated with several cases to familiarize the user with the analysis modes and data entry process.
- Program familiarization, dialog overview, data entry procedure, Productivity Index IPR, solve for total fluid rate, auto selecting a pump, motor, and cable. Sensitivity analysis for different equipment vendors. Number of stages allowed fluctuating for motor slip. Gas goes back into solution in stages. Medium crude with 55% water cut.
- Vogel corrected for water cut IPR, solve for pump intake conditions, selecting a pump, motor, and cable. Gas is compressed in stages. Heavy crude with 10% water cut. Solving for startup conditions, simulate well start up with kill fluid, pump-off time.
- Solving for pump depth: design in a deviated well, flowline profile and choke included for evaluation. Compare different PVT and wellbore correlations to obtain deviation values. Dogleg analysis.
- Solving for downhole conditions: temperature profile subject to downhole equipment, review of temperature correlations. Use motor heat rise calculation for cable selection.
- Solving for viscosity fluid: PVT Lab data and viscosity calibration. Prediction for different emulsion viscosity. Calculate viscosity correction factors, effect on TDH, HP and efficiency.
- Solving for missing equipment in database: Import IPR curve data from a file and import new pump from Excel format. Using PVT Laboratory data.
- Solving for high GOR fluid: application of gas separator and tapered system to optimize free gas in the pump. Use gas interference to calculate the head degradation and the possibility of flow being unstable.
