Artificial Lift for Natural Gas

Introducing the only artificial lift technology that increases the production
and recovery of natural gas from conventional and unconventional wells.

Upwing Subsurface Compressor Systems™ (SCS) maximize
gas well performance, increasing overall economic return.

Heighten Well Performance

See how Upwing Subsurface Compressor Systems are creating a new frontier in energy production by maximizing the operational and financial performance of natural gas wells efficiently and economically.

Using a type curve from a U.S. unconventional well with known characteristics, we have modeled the change in a well’s operational performance with the installation of an Upwing Subsurface Compressor System™. The SCS increases the rate of production by 34% and increases the overall recovery of the natural gas reserves by 21% within the first 6 years. In addition, the use of a dewatering plunger lift system is pushed out by over a year.

Maximizing operational performance with SCS improves financial performance.

Increasing cash flow by 37% due to the reduction in lifting cost per mcfe

Increasing the Net Present Value (NPV) of the well by 34% (at the time of SCS Installation)

Total well performance improves from the initial start of production

Decreasing finding and development (F&D) expenses/mcfe by 12%

Decreasing lease operating expenses (LOE)/mcfe by 17%.

Providing an internal rate of return (IRR) in the high double digits with a payback of less than a year.

U.S. Unconventional Well

If an Upwing Subsurface Compressor System™ was installed on every gas well operating today, it would mean:

Increased Natural Gas Reserves

US: Additional 396 trillion cubic feet worth $1.1 trillion

WORLD: Additional 1.12 quadrillion cubic feet worth $3.36 trillion

Increased Yearly Natural Gas Production

US: Additional 7 trillion cubic feet worth $21 billion

WORLD: Additional 30 trillion cubic feet worth $90 billion

Evaluate Well Dynamics in Real Time

We are integrating Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities into our subsurface products to give operators the real time information they need to optimize well performance.

  • Reservoir Response Prediction and Optimization

    Enables operators to predict reservoir response to SCS by correlating performance trends of similar wells over time.

  • Product Maximization

    Enables operators to maximize production through changing well conditions via SCS controls.

  • Compressor Re-staging

    Enables operators to plan for compressor re-staging via the extrapolation of performance trends.

  • Prognostics and Diagnostics

    Enables operators to monitor, control and troubleshoot subsurface equipment.
