MaxRate Software Increased Production 20% and Eliminated Shutdowns Due To Elevated Motor Temperatures and Gas Slugs

A leading producer in the Bakken formation in North Dakota was losing production due to gas- related shutdowns in a 1,000 scf/ barrel gas/liquid ratio (GLR) well. Due to variations in the horizontal wellbore, extreme gas slugging was seen in the electrical submersible pumping (ESP) system multiple times per day. The gas slugs were causing the ESP to overheat and shut down, exposing the system to high temperatures. These gas slugs and elevated temperatures increased the risk of failure and reduced total production.
