What is an Echometer used for?
The Echometer Well Analyzer is used in conjunction with a gas gun/microphone assembly to determine the liquid level depth in a well. Normally, the liquid level depth is determined in the casing annulus, but also, the liquid level depth can be measured inside tubing in gas wells.
What is a fluid shot?
A Fluid Shot is done by shutting in the casing (Annulus between the tubing and casing) of the well in to the flow line. A Fluid Shot Gun is a tool that creates a concussive force (sound wave) down the annulus by using a burst of pressure from an inert gas (usually nitrogen).
What is static fluid level?
1. n. [Production Testing] The level to which fluid rises in a well when the well is shut in. The hydrostatic head of this fluid is equal to the well bottomhole pressure.
What is Echometer?
: an apparatus for measuring depths of objects in water or underground by timing the echoes of sound reflected from them.
What is fluid injection used for?
The injection of a fluid into the reservoir at immiscible conditions is sometimes referred to as pressure maintenance because one of the goals of the injection program is to keep pressure from declining. Pressure maintenance is now implemented at the beginning of production in some modern reservoirs.
What is dynamic fluid level?
The dynamic fluid level, defined as the distance from the wellhead to the fluid level in the annulus, is a key pumping parameter to be measured on a regular basis. It has been well accepted that fluid level survey is considered as the primary diagnostic tool for monitoring downhole status and confirming the problem.
What is static bottom hole pressure?
The static bottom hole pressure (SBHP) represents the energy available to move the fluid from the reservoir to the wellbore. It is one of the key factors in the analysis of well performance.
Is there a bat detector app?
Is there a bat detector app? Yep. Wildlife Acoustics has created their free bat detector app for both iOS and Android devices that works in conjunction with their Echo Meter Touch 2 (or Touch 2 Pro) ultrasonic microphone.
Is Deep well injection legal?
Regulatory requirements. In the United States, injection well activity is regulated by EPA and state governments under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA).
Are deep injection wells safe?
In the 1950s, chemical companies began injecting industrial wastes into deep wells. As chemical manufacturing increased, so did the use of deep injection. Injection proved to be a safe and inexpensive option for the disposal of unwanted and often hazardous industrial byproducts.
What are the different types of Echometer products?
Stand alone, battery powered microprocessor controlled digital acoustic signal processor, recorder and display unit. Compact gas gun (1500 psi), remote fire gun (1500 psi), and manual 5,000 PSI and 15,000 PSI guns.
How does an Echometer work in a gas pump?
Collar-Size Gas Separators to optimize gas separation from the liquid that enters the pump. Battery powered microprocessor controlled digital acoustic signal processor, recorder and display unit. Assemblies include combination gas gun and microphone. The station allows simultaneous acquisition of liquid level, dynamometer and pressure records.
How does an Echometer work with a laptop?
The Echometer Base Station allows simultaneous wireless acquisition of liquid level, dynamometer and pressure records as controlled by the user via the TAM software either at the laptop or at the sensor location. Stand alone, battery powered microprocessor controlled digital acoustic signal processor, recorder and display unit.
How does a dynamometer work in a well?
The station allows simultaneous acquisition of liquid level, dynamometer and pressure records. Precision transducers that measure pressure, temperature, load, acceleration, and motor power/current. Portable dual-channel strip chart recorder to obtain the distance to the liquid level in the casing annulus of a well.
