Bloodhound Gas Lift Optimizer

Bloodhound™ gas lift optimizer is specifically designed to accelerate the recovery of oil in land-based gas-lifted wells. It uses a proprietary, patent-pending “hunting” algorithm designed to simulate reservoir inflow based on iterative automatic analysis of flowing bottomhole pressures to determine optimal gas injection rates. Unlike current methods, which use infrequent well test information, the Bloodhound optimizer continuously improves the efficiency of the lift solution by leveraging readings from a permanent downhole gauge. This unique approach accommodates varying surface conditions and downhole conditions as the well rapidly declines.

Work into the future

Production modeling software supports business forecasting.

The impact of automated control management​

Frequent changes to well dynamics and surface conditions demand continuous supervision and management to maximize production and minimize operating expenses.

Operators using our Bloodhound algorithm have realized the following benefits:

  • Greater BHP draw down during the initial production phase
  • Five to 10 percent increase in production, under ideal circumstance, in the first year
  • Faster recovery to stable flowing conditions after shutdowns / restarts
  • Reduced gas consumption in wells previously over-injecting

Driving the evolution of gas lift operations​

PCS Ferguson has helped drive the evolution of gas lift operations. With the increased popularity of this most natural flowing lift technique, we believe that how you operate the well is as important as the mechanical design itself. Sophisticated and proprietary digital solutions provide operators with not only the industry’s best methods to operate gas lift wells but also increased efficiencies from commingled delivery systems.
