Multiphase pumping technology is continuously emerging in the oil industry as solution for oil and gas field production where limitations with conventional pumping systems occur.
This paper presents the recent research on the application of a new multiphase down-hole twin-screw pump on the base of reservoir and production simulations of an offshore oilfield.
The simulations revealed that the deployment of the multiphase down-hole pump in galleries in two phases of tail-end production led to a positive impact in well and reservoir performance compared to natural flow as originally achieved in the field production history. The down-hole pumps extended the well life, added incremental oil and improved the ultimate recovery.
