Utilization of associated petroleum gas with using of existing field infrastructure

Authors: A.N. Drozdov (Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas, RF, Moscow)

Key words: utilization of associated gas, field infrastructure, pump, jet apparatus, pump-ejecting system.

There are many reasons of not sufficiently associated gas utilization – the absence of gas pipelines, remoteness and marginal fields, the lack of gas consumers in the areas of production, etc. However, analysis of field data shows that in many cases gas passing can be disposed through its joint transportation with the liquid through pipelines to the plant complex of oil and gas preparation with subsequent delivery to consumers. This requires minimal additional capital investment. Operating costs in some cases can even be reduced with the maximum use of existing field infrastructure and adding jet apparatus (ejectors) to the equipment of booster pump stations.
