Innovative downhole pumping solutions for deep oil wells, gas well dewatering, and more
Retrofit pump for depleted gas lifted wellbores
In March 2022 we entered into a collaboration with an offshore operator in Norway, where we are upgrading our gas powered DayaPump for installations into depleted offshore (subsea) wells. The solution aim to restart and maintain the production from the wellbores, where insufficient reservoir pressure prevents efficient reservoir fluid delivery to the gas lift valve in the existing well completion. Our pump will be placed hundreds of meters below the gas lift mandrel, where hydraulic tubes between the mandrel and the pump provides power to the pump, as well as a conduit for reservoir fluids delivered to the tubing above the pack-off system in the gas lift mandrel.
This system will enable the wellbore to produce again, resulting in greatly improved total reservoir recovery.
Our downhole electric coupler for wire replaceable ESP´s launched as a coupler for dual stage completions
We have now delivered 3 complete downhole electric coupler for deepwater subsea wells, where the 4th set is due for delivery June 2022. These couplers enable electric power and signal to be transmitted between the lower completion string (placed within the horizontal reservoir section) and the upper completion string. By implementing our coupler, the client is able to go from one each P&T sensor located above the production packer, to 8 P&T sensors in total, spread out within the producing reservoir section. Just imagine the value of such great increase in data provided from within the reservoir section instead of "only" from above the packer!
CSG well workover rates reduced with new technology
Qteq and Hansenpumps are cooperating for better service to our clients in Australia and New Zealand
November 7, 2018
Leading georesources company Qteq Pty Ltd has entered into an exclusive distribution and engineering development agreement with submersible pumping system innovator Hansen Downhole Pump Solutions AS (Hansenpumps).
Qteq will be the sole provider of SureQ Smart Pump rod-less submersible, reciprocating positive displacement pumps across Australia and New Zealand, with considerable focus on the Queensland coal seam gas (CSG) market.
Hansenpumps CEO Henning Hansen said the agreement combined Hansenpumps’ deep understanding of artificial lift technologies and renowned expertise in development of well completions technologies, with Qteq’s world class service delivery and field engineering resources.
“The patented rod-less pump technology, with unique inverted pump chamber, has been designed to specifically address the challenge of lifting solids-laden water encountered in many CSG production wells” said serial-inventor and Hansenpumps CEO Henning Hansen.
“The high solids content, together with well-known mechanical wear problems caused by rotating or reciprocating rod strings, is limiting run lives of traditional pump types in CSG wells, and in some cases, is also leading to loss of well completion integrity.
“Also, rod pumps suffer from environmental pollution, and we are focused on providing better solutions for the environment.”
Qteq CIO Quentin Morgan said the collaboration was yet another example of Qteq’s investment in global innovative thinking.
“The commercialisation of the SureQ Smart Pump in the coming months will help our clients drive down CSG well workover frequency and equipment replacement costs at a price point that is responsive to financial pressures.”
“We have also designed a technology staircase of new and enhanced pump performance capabilities to be rolled out at regular intervals into the future.”
The Queensland CSG sector will be one of the first regions to benefit, with Qteq’s Toowoomba facility to include a flow loop that will demonstrate performance of the SureQ Smart Pump, Qteq COO Ewan Meldrum said.
“Our aim is to upgrade the Toowoomba facility to be our Global Centre of Excellence and home to a SureQ Smart Pump assembly, testing, strip down and inspection division,” Mr Meldrum said.
“This investment in the Queensland CSG sector will result in new high-value jobs and local procurement, manufacturing and design opportunities.”
