  • Petroleum Technology Digest: Beam-operated gas compressor is profitable in various field applications


    C. McCoy

    Using the walking beam-operated Beam Gas Compressor (BGC), operators can increase production and reduce operating costs on rod-pumping wells by drawing gas and gas pressure from the casing, alleviating the problem of gas interference in the downhole pump. Operators are utilizing the BGC to force casinghead gas into high-pressure sales lines. Operators find the BGC is the solution to compress casinghead gas in fields where electricity is not available for conventional compression methods. Some operators experience increases of up to 40 bopd with associated gas and compression savings of $20,000 or more.
