Maximizing Production on a SAP Well

A-PRO
MSAS-G and VR Sensor controlled by A-PRO

Wells with Sustained Annulus Pressure (SAP) are in breach of OPCO well integrity policies. Some SAP wells can be flowed under dispensation. Others, depending on their location, and the nature of the SAP, must be closed in awaiting workover, resulting in significant production losses. This case study describes the use of the PTC A-PROTM system to address the well integrity challenges and autonomously manage SAP. As a result, there was no need to close the well in. The system also provided data to better understand the nature of the SAP. Numerous alerts were also provided, at times when the well was no longer producing (due to external factors). Thus, further maximizing production uptime.
