RECOVER MORE OIL IN DEPLETED RESERVOIRS AND GET TOP EFFICIENCY IN DISPOSAL WELLS
 

Water Injection Pumps

Water injection pumps are used to force water, wastewater, waste field oil, and brine deep underground into porous formations. Injection can be used as an enhanced oil recovery (EOR) method in reservoirs where pressures are dropping. With EOR operations, fluid is injected in one well to build reservoir pressure and push hydrocarbons toward an offset production well.

Injection pumps are also used in disposal wells. Somewhere around 3 barrels of water are produced for every barrel of oil harvested from the earth. That leaves a lot of wastewater that must be dealt with. Many operators turn to disposal wells because they remain the most economical way to offload produced water.

BENEFITS

Reduce power costs on injection and disposal wells

Efficient ESP design reduces power consumption, lowering injection and disposal costs
Easily convert production wells to injection wells

When a well has reached the end of its economic life, reuse the VSD to control the injection pump
Control injection rates to optimize EOR production

Increase or decrease injection rates to manage and optimize recovery in the production well
