Hart Energy Webinar: AI-Enhanced Plunger Lift Solution Improves Production and Reliability for Montney Shale Wells in Canada

Recorded November 2023

Plunger lift is a form of artificial lift popular in both Canada and the United States for natural gas wells due to its low installation and operating costs. Despite the simplicity of a plunger lift system, optimization can be difficult due to a number of challenges, including varying degrees of operator knowledge, availability of time, large numbers of wells, changing well conditions, data quality, data accessibility, varying plunger lift controllers, limited understanding of downhole conditions, etc.

The Montney asset team for a major Canadian oil and gas company had long experienced many of these challenges with their plunger lift wells in the Montney shale play in British Columbia, Canada.

Ambyint deployed its InfinityPL plunger lift optimization solution to improve the performance of its plunger lift wells and reduce the time required for the client team to manually analyze and optimize wells.

Key results included:

  • Improved gas production from plunger lift well by as much as 6%
  • Reduced venting of methane from plunger lift wells by as much as 75%
  • Improved workforce scalability by heavily automating manual well optimization time

“Actual results to date show the payback duration was 44 days and a return on their investment of 8.2 times. Plus a greenhouse gas reduction of 75% year over year.” – Sid Rothlisberger, Ambyint
